In a stunning letter to the same congressional leaders he addressed just 9 days ago, FBI Director James Comey on Sunday announced that the FBI had finished reviewing the emails which were found on disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner and that nothing there had changed their conclusion in July that no charges should be brought against former Secretary Clinton.
The new letter from Comey states that the FBI “has not changed its conclusions expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”
House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz, one of the addressees of Comey’s letter, tweeted on Sunday afternoon informing his followers of Comey’s letter.
FBI Dir just informed us "Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Sec Clinton"

By all accounts, Comey dropped a bombshell on the Clinton Campaign October 28th — just eleven days from the election — when he informed Congress that the FBI had discovered emails in its separate investigation of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, that could be pertinent to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Clinton national spokesman Brian Fallon said her campaign feels validated in its prediction on the day that Comey sent his original that nothing would change. Fallon tweeted:
“We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited. Now Director Comey has confirmed it.”
