FBI Taking Another Look at Clinton Emails

The FBI has come across emails that may be related to the closed Hillary Clinton email server investigation, according to a letter FBI Director James Comey sent several congressional leaders on Friday. "In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation," Comey wrote. "I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation." He added, "the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work." So this could be a big deal or nothing at all.

Donald Trump Lights $10 Million on Fire

With only 11 days left in this year's presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has vastly more money in the bank than Donald Trump. It's not even close. So Trump has finally decided to pitch in a few dollars of his own money:

Donald Trump, seeking to boost momentum in the last days of the presidential election, wired $10 million of his own money into his presidential campaign Friday morning, two advisers said....Mr. Trump's cash infusion brings his total contributions to his campaign to $66 million....Mr. Trump's latest donation to his cause still falls $34 million short of the $100 million he has repeatedly said he will give to his campaign—a pledge he reiterated as recently as Wednesday. Well, I guess he's still got another week to light his final $34 million on fire. In the meantime, consider this: Election Day can fall between November 2 and November 8.
