Clinton email probe reopened

US election: Clinton campaign condemns FBI email move

FBI Director James Comey informed Congress of the move in a letter on Friday, 11 days before the election.

Mrs Clinton told supporters the move was "unprecedented" and "deeply troubling".

But Republican opponent Donald Trump has praised the bureau's decision.

In his letter to Congress, Mr Comey said the FBI had learned of fresh emails which might be "pertinent" to its previous inquiry into the Democratic candidate's use of a private server when she was secretary of state in the Obama administration.

US State Department restarts Hillary Clinton email probe

The likely Democratic presidential nominee learned this week that she will not face criminal charges over her use of private email.

The FBI said that although she had sent and received sensitive material there was no evidence of intent.

Now that inquiry is over, the State Department will reopen its review.

As well as the former secretary of state, it will also include some of her former aides, all of whom have now left the department.
