At a campaign event in Kent, Ohio on Monday, Hillary Clinton defiantly dismissed FBI Director James Comey’s announcement to certain members of Congress that newly revealed emails that appear to pertain to the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server while serving as Secretary of State, saying, “There is no case here.”
You can watch Hillary say it in the following video clip:

I am sure a lot of you may be asking what this new email story is about and why in the world the FBI would decide to jump into an election with no evidence of any wrong doing, with just days to go.
That is a good question.
And first of all, for those of you who are concerned about my using personal email, I understand. And as I’ve said, I’m not making excuses, I’ve said it was a mistake and I regret it.

Was that true? COMEY: That’s not true. There were a small number of portion markings on, I think, three of the documents.
- GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said, I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail, there is no classified material. Was that true? COMEY: There was classified material e-mailed.
- GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true? COMEY: She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as secretary of state.
- GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said all work-related e-mails were returned to the State Department. Was that true? COMEY: No. We found work-related e-mails, thousands that were not returned.
- GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the e-mails and were overly inclusive. Did her lawyers read the e-mail content individually? COMEY:
