Clinton email case handling brings tumultuous time for FBI

Trump ad Clinton emails'found on pervert Anthony Weiner's laptop

A petition created by two activists is calling on James Comey to resign after the veteran law enforcement official, now the Director of the FBI, sent an inappropriate letter to Congress Friday regarding Hillary Clinton's emails, and the Bureau later tweeting out government files on Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The FBI has cleared Hillary Clinton in its reopened investigation into classified materials in her personal emails while Secretary of State.

Comey has already said that investigators found classified emails on Clinton's server, and that although Clinton and her aides had been "extremely careless" in their handling of classified information, there was no evidence that anyone had willfully broken the law.

"Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation", Comey wrote today.

The news comes after the FBI announced it would review a new batch of emails that appeared to be "pertinent" to the investigation that was suspended in July which had looked into Clinton's use of a private server.

In short, the agency found nothing new-after unleashing one of the biggest political bombshells in a recent presidential campaign.

The news boosted U.S. S&P 500 Index futures 1.2 percent, a gain that is likely to snap the nine-day losing streak in the USA stock index - its longest in more than 35 years.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton", Comey said in a letter to several key members of Congress released on Sunday.

"You can't review 650,000 emails in eight days", Trump told the crowd.

"Right now, she is being protected by a rigged system".

Markets have tended to see USA presidential contender Clinton as the status quo candidate, and news favouring her bid often boosts risk appetite. US Senator Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday's announcement made Comey's earlier letter "even more troubling" and called for the Justice Department to review its procedures to prevent similar actions to influence future elections. "The reason that so many Americans have a problem with Hillary Clinton's honesty and trustworthiness and veracity does not change".

After voting in New York Tuesday morning, Trump was expected to return to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina and New Hampshire later in the day, Conway said. It is simply too late in the campaign for reputable polling to make that assessment, although it could undermine a boost that Donald Trump got in some polls taken after Comey's disclosure late last month.

Expanding on this, Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, also dismissed the claims to MSNBC.
