The FBI is reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, multiple sources are reporting.
NBC News, as well as Congressman Jason Chaffetz, are reporting that FBI Director James Comey has sent a letter to Congress saying that the investigation into Clinton's server is now open to re-examine additional emails for classified information.
