Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on Secretary Clinton’s emails:
“Today’s letter from the FBI states that the agency has reviewed ‘all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State’ and it reaffirms the decision to recommend against further action by the Justice Department. This should end the email saga once and for all.
“The October surprise that came only 11 days before Election Day has unfairly hurt the campaign of one candidate and changed the tenor of this election.
“Today’s letter makes Director Comey’s actions nine days ago even more troubling. There’s no doubt that it created a false impression about the nature of the agency’s inquiry.
“I believe the Justice Department needs to take a look at its procedures to prevent similar actions that could influence future elections.
“Now that this matter is concluded, I hope that the final days of the campaign allow the American people an opportunity to consider the important issues facing our country.”
