Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said that she was ‘confident’ that the FBI's review of newly discovered emails related to her use of a private server will not change the bureau's original conclusion that she should not face charges.
Calling on the FBI to release ‘the full and complete facts’ about its review of emails related to her personal server, Clinton said, “Voting is underway, so the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately.”
“It's imperative that the bureau explain this issue in question, whatever it is, without any delay,” she added.
“I am confident (that) whatever they are will not change the conclusion reached in July,” she further said.
This was her first public comments since FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers earlier on Friday that the bureau is reviewing new emails tied to her personal server. The newly discovered emails are part of an investigation into Anthony Weiner.
Wiener, a former New York Democratic Congressman, recently separated from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin after he had exchanged sexually explicit text messages with an underage girl.
The FBI is investigating to see if any of the new emails will have an impact on the recently closed investigation into Clinton's server.
In July, a year-long investigation by the FBI in its email probe, ended with no criminal charges against Clinton and the Justice Department closed the investigation.
