FBI Director James Comey informed Congress on Sunday that a review of new emails found in relation to the bureau's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server had not yielded any reason for charges against the Democratic presidential nominee.

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

In July, Comey characterized Clinton and her team of being "extremely careless" while handling classified information, but said no "reasonable prosecutor" would move forward with a case.

Comey stunned the political world in late October when he announced the FBI had reactive its investigation into Clinton after discovering new emails "pertinent to the investigation."
