On October 27th, FBI Director James Comey alerted congress concerning new evidence unearthed in the ongoing Hilary Clinton e-mail scandal. According to a report at Breitbart, Comey wrote:
“I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” Comey wrote.
The evidence was recovered during an investigation into former Democratic Representative-turned-lobbyist Anthony Weiner and wife Huma Abedin, Vice Chairwoman for Hillary’s presidential campaign. The news comes hot on the heels of new pay-to-play evidence as well as two new Project Veritas videos that busted political action campaigns in a number of caught-on-camera violations, namely accepting donations from wealthy foreign benefactors and inciting harassment of Trump supporters at rallies.
Donald Trump released a statement on the newly reopened investigation, praising the FBI for “righting this wrong.”
The stock market has also reacted to the news, with Business Insider reporting a steep drop in shares on the S & P 500.
