FBI re-opens investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server

Multiple reports that the investigation is back open

The FBI earlier this year said it found nothing criminal in Hilary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as the Secretary of State.

They have been attacked from the right on the inability to recover 33,000 missing emails or hold anyone to account.

Now, NBC News and a several Congressmen report that the FBI has re-opened the investigation. One of the reasons might be disclosures about who know what in the Podesta emails that continue to drip out from Wikileaks.

USD/JPY is slumping on the report and USD/MXN is rallying.

Update : The US House Oversight Committee Chairman says on twitter that the FBI told him they have learned about emails that appear pertinent to the Clinton investigation.

Definitely sounds like Wikileaks.

The letter is vague on the implications and the timeline so it's not quite as bad as it appears at first. The bad news is that there are still 16,000 Podesta emails to be released and that's what could be the clincher. Ultimately, what's in there might not be what causes the issues. Instead, it could be the cover up and lies.
