Washington, October 29: Arriving like a shocking incident for US presidential nominee Hillary Clinton just before elections, the FBI on Friday reopened the case related to Democratic leader’s private email server. The Federal Bureau of Investigation announced new inquiries related to the matter of using Government’s email for private purposes, therby putting national security at extreme risks.
The FBI probe, which had been declared complete three months earlier, took a new turn when FBI director James Comey dropped the bombshell in a letter to congressional committees investigating allegations that Clinton put US secrets at risk during her time as secretary of state.
Taking in view that the US elections are to be conducted on November, the action can become an obstacle to the elections campaign of the former first lady of US, who is facing a tough completion with the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Federal officials have been examining sexually suggestive online messages that Weiner allegedly exchanged with a teenage girl. The link to the Weiner investigation was first reported by the New York Times. According to the leading newspaper of the US, the newly discovered mails emerged after agents seized electronic devices belonging to Clinton's closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
Weiner -- a Democratic politician whose bid to become mayor of New York foundered when he was exposed for sending explicit online messages -- is under FBI investigation over allegations that he sent sexual messages to a 15-year-old girl.
The announcement could reshape a presidential race that Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has been leading in most public polls. It was immediately hailed by Clinton’s rival Donald Trump, who told supporters at a New Hampshire rally that “perhaps, finally, justice will be done.” The crowd responded with pumped fists and chants of “Lock her up! Lock her up!”
Clinton told reporters Friday night in Iowa that she learned of the newly discovered emails only after the letter to Congress was made public. “I’m confident whatever emails are will not change the conclusion reached in July. Therefore, it’s imperative that the bureau explain this issue in question, whatever it is, without any delay.” she said.
