US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has hit back again at the FBI director James Comey for deciding to dredge up the matter of how she used her private emails so close to the vote.
The Democratic presidential nominee has called on Comey to come forth with more information on why he has decided to reconsider the matter of the emails within a fortnight of the 8 November election.
Speaking at a rally in Florida yesterday, Clinton said:
It is pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. It's not just strange, it's unprecedented and it's deeply troubling because voters deserve to get full and complete facts.
Comey had previously recommended not pushing ahead with prosecuting Clinton for using her private emails to handle classified information while she was secretary of state. At the time, the FBI director reprimanded Clinton and her aides for their carelessness.
However, Comey revealed the FBI would be re-running the inquiry after new emails came to light during the course of a separate inquiry into former congressman Anthony Weiner, who is also the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Clinton's Republican presidential rival Donald Trump has been quick to voice his views on the saga, calling it "the biggest political scandal since Watergate".
