Clinton Asks People to ‘Vote Early’ During Press Conference on Re-opening of FBI Investigation

BY:

Hillary Clinton encouraged Americans to vote early during a press conference Friday night that addressed the FBI re-opening the investigation into her use of a private email server.

Clinton held a press conference, which lasted less than four minutes, Friday night to address the FBI re-opening the investigation into whether or not she sent and received classified emails on a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State. FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to members of Congress stating the bureau was re-opening the investigation into Clinton after new emails were found.

The newly discovered emails were found during an underage sexting investigation into Anthony Weiner. The device which had Clinton's emails on it was shared between Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton,

Clinton spoke a few words before answering only three questions.

The former secretary of state said "the director himself has said he doesn't know whether the e-mails referenced in his letter are significant or not" and claimed she was "confident" the investigation would not change the conclusion the FBI Director came to in July.

"You have 11 days to go. What would you say to a voter who right now will be seeing you and hearing what you are saying? Saying I didn't trust her before, I don't trust her anymore right now and they are heading to the ballot box tomorrow," a reporter said.

Clinton responded by claiming, "people a long time ago made up their minds about the emails" and urged "everybody to get out and vote early."

The final question of the press release addressed Weiner and Abedin.

"Have you spoken to Huma?" a reporter asked.

"We heard the rumors. We don't know what to believe and I'm sure there will be even more rumors. That is why it is incumbent upon the FBI to tell us what they are talking about, Jeff, because right now your guess is as good as mine and I don't think that's good enough," she said.
