The FBI has absolved Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing... again

FBI Director James Comey sent shockwaves through the electoral landscape on October 28 when he sent Congress a letter confirmed that the Bureau had uncovered further emails belonging to Hillary Clinton that may have been worthy of investigation.

Comey has now supplemented his original announcement with a second letter to Congress, which reads as follows:

'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.

'Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.'

Comey made a statement in July that Clinton had not broken any laws when she mishandled her emails by sending them through a private server. Despite the emergence of new emails, that decision has been upheld.

Presidential candidate Donald Trump has seen a resurgence in popularity in the time since Comey's first letter to Congress, suggesting that the re-emerging mystery around Clinton's emails was a worry for voters. Now, at the second time of asking, the FBI has reached the same conclusion: Hillary Clinton did not break the law with regard to her emails.
