WASHINGTON ― The FBI announced on Friday that it is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of sensitive government information.
In a letter to members of Congress, FBI Director James Comey said the FBI, “in connection to an unrelated case” had learned of email that “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.”
In July, Comey announced the FBI would not recommend criminal charges against the former secretary of state but called the handling of sensitive information “extremely careless.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who has pledged to continue holding hearings into Clinton’s use of a private server while she was in the State Department, tweeted about the case being reopened.
