In a letter sent to members of Congress Sunday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey said the FBI was not changing the conclusion into their criminal probe of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her use of private email server while at the State Department.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Calif.), who heads up the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, broke the news shortly before 3:30 p.m. EST.

Comey wrote in his brief letter:

I write to supplement my October 28, 2016 letter that notified you of the FBI would be taking additional investigative steps with respect to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation,” Comey said in the letter. “During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.

I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time.

Comey last wrote to Congress nine days ago informing them that FBI investigators had uncovered potential new evidence against Clinton and was re-opening their case against her.

The FBI director announced in July that the FBI would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton, despite admitting that she had classified documents on her unsecured email server.
