FBI Director James Comey told Republican lawmakers on Sunday that the agency still believes Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges for the use of a private email server 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", Comey wrote in a letter to members of Congress.

"We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited", Fallon tweeted. While FBI Director James Comey, in effect, said "never mind" with regards to Hillary Clinton's emails, for the past two weeks the story has dominated the political conversation, and Democrats have paid a price.

Since my letter, the FBI investigative team as been working around the clock to process and review a large vilume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation.

Comey had rocked the presidential race with his announcement October 28 that the FBI had uncovered a new trove of emails that might be relevant to the investigation of Clinton's use of a private email server.

Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon said her campaign is validated in its belief that nothing would change.

However, the commission did say Bookman is entitled to what it said she actually won on the machine: $2.25, ABC 7 reported . Immediately after the incident, the machine she had played was removed from the casino floor and taken to be repaired.


In a letter to lawmakers, Comey said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is standing by its original findings made in July.

Sunday afternoon at a rally in Minneapolis shortly after Comey's latest announcement became public, Trump repeated his charge that Clinton is protected by a "rigged system".

A Clinton campaign spokesperson told NBC News the campaign is "glad to see" Comey re-affirmed his July conclusions and that "the matter is resolved". The announcement stole momentum from her campaign and delivered it to Trump.

The National Jewish Democratic Council said the ad's use of anti-Semitic stereotypes is "shocking and unsafe". Trump has repeatedly warned that a cloud of scandal would follow Clinton to the White House.

A senior law enforcement official told NBC News that the FBI's review of the thousands of emails on the Anthony Weiner laptop concluded that almost all were duplicates of emails previously seen by FBI agents investigating the email server. By now, voters would have already factored in the new emails to their calculations and made a decision.
