Clinton confident new FBI enquiry won't lead to charges

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Friday that she was "confident" the FBI's renewed examination of her use of a private e-mail server while secretary of state would not result in a recommendation to bring charges.

At the same time, she told a press conference in Des Moines, Iowa, that it was "imperative" for FBI Director James Comey to "explain this issue ... without delay."

Clinton said her campaign first learned of the re-opening of the investigation from media reports based on a letter Comey sent early Friday to the chairmen of several congressional committees.

"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of e-mails that appear pertinent to the investigation" of Clinton's private e-mail server, Comey wrote to lawmakers.

"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," the director continued.

The FBI "cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant," Comey told the committee chairman.
