FBI announced not to investigate further Clinton emails

400FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn't changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails. The FBI found them as part of its separate investigation into a sexting incident by Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July," Comey wrote in the new letter to congressional committee chairmen.
"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," Mr Comey said in the letter.


A Clinton spokeswoman on Sunday made a brief statement to reporters on the Democratic nominee's plane: "We are glad to see that ... he has confirmed the conclusions that he reached in July," Jennifer Palmieri said of Comey. "We are glad that this matter is resolved."
Trump landed in Minnesota for a rally moments after Comey's announcement Sunday. He made no direct mention of the FBI decision and continued to insist that Clinton would be under investigation during her potential presidency.

"She's protected by a rigged system," he said. "She shouldn't even be allowed to run for president."

Peter Trubowitz, director of the United States Center at the London School of Economics (LSE), told CNBC Monday that the main impact was most likely on those with one foot already in the Republican camp.

"What the FBI investigation did was it gave Republicans who were on the fence and who had real misgivings about Donald Trump an opportunity to rethink their position," he said.
