Comey: agency stands by decision to not pursue case against Clinton

Just over a week after FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshell into the presidential race by revealing newly-found evidence in the Hillary Clinton email probe, he offered what amounted to a "never mind" Sunday, notifying Congress that the newly-discovered messages wouldn't change the bureau's conclusion that no prosecution of Clinton was warranted.

In a letter sent to House and Senate committee leaders, Comey said FBI agents had completed their review of all messages to or from Clinton on a laptop seized last month from the estranged husband of a Clinton aide and had found nothing momentous.

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

The disclosure, just two days before Election Day, could undercut a boost Donald Trump appeared to enjoy in some polls taken after Comey's disclosure late last month about the newly-discovered set of email messages.

Clinton's campaign immediately claimed that Comey's latest missive put to rest any new concerns about the email issue.

"We're glad this matter is resolved," Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri said.

Donald Trump has been able to avoid revealing the real reason he never released his income tax returns.
Donald Trump faces billions in fines and possibly tax fraud charges.
