FBI INVESTIGATING NEW EMAILS LINKED TO HILLARY CLINTON

After closing its criminal investigation in July in the use of her private email server, the FBI has now announced it’s investigating whether newly found emails contain classified information.
The bureau reportedly came across the emails during an investigation in which the devices of former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, a Clinton aide, were seized.
Apparently, they did not come from Clinton’s private e-mail server.
The development raises the possibility of the FBI reopening the criminal investigation less than two weeks before the presidential election.

Donald Trump jumped on the news moments after it surfaces, telling cheering supporters in New Hampshire he has ”great respect” for the fact the FBI and Department of Justice are now ”willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made” earlier, adding ”perhaps finally justice will be served.”
The Republican nominee went on to say ”We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office … This is bigger than Watergate.”

Clinton has not responded to the news, ignoring reporters questions as she arrived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a rally.
