>> With just 11 days before the election, the FBI dropping a bombshell on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. FBI director James Comey on Friday announcing the agency was investigating additional emails that surfaced in connection with Clinton's use of a private server while she was Secretary of State. Reuters correspondent Jonathan Allen covers the Clinton campaign.
>> John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chairman has just put out a statement. He's calling on more information, for the FBI to release more information. Podesta says the campaign doesn't know what the emails are that the FBI says they're looking at. And he says in quite critical way that it's extraordinary that such an announcement comes just 11 days before an election.
>> Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz saying in a tweet that quote, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. Case reopened. That coming directly from a letter to members of Congress sent by Comey, who said the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps to review whether these potentially relevant emails contain classified information.
Adding he cannot predict how long it will take to complete this additional work.>> Any reaction to the FBI reopening the investigation?>> Clinton remains the frontrunner in opinion polls over Republican opponent Donald Trump, who has repeatedly attacked her over her emails, saying she should be in prison because she sent and received classified government secrets through her private server.
>> They are reopening the case.>> The announcement prompting an immediate negative reaction on Wall Street, with stocks reversing course and the fear index spiking higher. In July, Comey testified before Congress that no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges against Clinton over her use of a personal email server.
But on Friday, Comey said that these additional emails will be examined adding that it's unclear how significant the new materials may be.
