This Saturday, during a rally in Daytona Beach, Florida, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had a few words to share about James Comey. The FBI Director wrote a letter to congressional leaders, revealing the existence of several new emails that can play an important role in the Bureau’s investigation of her private email use.

“Some of you may have heard about a letter from the FBI director,” she said, in the roaring boos of the crowd. “If you’re like me, you probably have a few questions about it. It is pretty strange — it’s pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election.”

Mr. Comey should make all things clear!

Acknowledging that this aspect might influence her campaign in a negative way, Hillary Clinton announced that the whole situation is “deeply troubling”, as voters should known the full and complete facts. She also added that James Comey should explain everything right away.

In his letter, the FBI Director was stating that the agency is now investigation whether the new batch of emails may be significant and if they contained classified information. They were found on the electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, top Clinton aide, and her ex-husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner, according to CBS News.

Democrats are attacking the decision

Attorney General Loretta Lynch also joined Hillary Clinton in disagreeing with Comey’s decision to send the letter to the Congress, while Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and campaign chair John Podesta released some statements as well.

The letter was characterized as “long on innuendo and short on facts” by Mr. Podesta, who added that “there’s no evidence of wrongdoing, no charge of wrongdoing, no indication that this was even about Hillary.”
