FBI to probe new emails related to Clinton’s private server
The FBI has uncovered new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, prompting federal authorities to investigate them.
The FBI discovered the emails as part of an “unrelated case,” FBI Director James Comey said in a letter to a congressional committee that was later tweeted on Friday.
These emails “appear to be pertinent” to the FBI’s original investigation into Clinton’s private server use, which the agency wrapped up back in July, Comey said. Clinton, now the Democratic nominee for U.S. president, used the privacy server while she served as secretary of state.
