WASHINGTON (AP) — Four senior Democratic senators are calling on the Justice Department and the FBI to promptly release more information on emails identified by FBI Director James Comey as pertinent to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s personal email server.
In a letter Saturday, the senators say such a letter with few details released in the days before the Nov. 8 election is being used for political purposes and has led to a misleading impression about the FBI’s actions and intentions.
The senators are asking that the Justice Department and FBI provide more detailed information by Monday about what investigative steps are being taken, the number of emails involved and what is being done to determine how many of the emails are duplicative of those already reviewed by the FBI.
The letter was sent to Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch by Sens. Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, Thomas Carper of Delaware, Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Dianne Feinstein of California.
