Just as many mainstream news outlets are attempting to declare victory for Hillary Clinton, new evidence has surfaced that has caused the FBI to reopen their investigation into Clinton’s email misuse. James Comey, Director of the FBI, has said that he does not know how long the investigation will continue up until or even through election day.
According to the Fox News reporting, “The timing of this, and the pressure that the FBI is under – to issue a letter like this just a little over 10 days before election day, one would have to think as if there is something very specific that moved them to do so. Otherwise, if it was a gray area, to go out on a limb and do this would – I can’t imagine that.”
Many in the public and in Congress have expressed their outrage at how this criminal investigation has been handled. In the wake of this breaking news, many have come forward to express their gratitude and support.

“The FBI’s decision to reopen its investigation into Secretary Clinton reinforces what the House Judiciary Committee has been saying for months: the more we learn about Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server, the clearer it becomes that she and her associates committed wrongdoing and jeopardized national security.”
