The FBI continued its scorched-earth campaign to make itself part of every major 2016 story today, releasing its vault of documents on Republican nominee Donald Trump’s father, Fred.

The agency's records vault today released documents that listed the real estate mogul's properties in 1988 and included a news article detailing Trump's political donations to politicians like Democratic New York City Mayor Ed Koch.

The article, titled "Report: Bizmen ply pols with donations," details more than $350,000 in donations to Koch over five years. Koch was the mayor of New York from 1978 to 1989.

The documents don't contain any major revelations, but it's another example of the FBI releasing key documents in the final days of the 2016 campaign.

On Friday, the agency made waves by announcing to Congress its plans to reopen its investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. Also today, the FBI released more than 100 pages of documents relating to former President Bill Clinton’s pardon of financier Marc Rich.
