Just a little over a week until election, the FBI informed Congress on Friday that it is investigating whether there is classified information in new emails.
The FBI had just announced in July that their investigation on Hillary Clinton’s private server was finished, but they are not investigating new emails.
According to FBI Director James Comey, new emails have prompted investigators to take another look at the sensitive government information that the secretary of state had going through her private email server.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner pledged the department would “cooperate to the full extent that we can.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan commented and said Secretary Clinton has “nobody but herself to blame.”
“She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information,” he said in a statement.
“This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators. I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved.”
