    The decision by FBI Director James Comey to reopen the bureau’s investigation into former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email demonstrates that her use of a private server threatened US national security, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said in a statement on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Comey informed the US Congress that the FBI discovered new emails sent from Clinton's private server during the course of an unrelated investigation. Comey said investigators would review the new emails to determine if they contain classified information.

    "The more we learn about Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server, the clearer it becomes that she and her associates committed wrongdoing and jeopardized national security," the statement said.

    Clinton has been criticized for the use of a private email server and account for official business during her 2009-2013 tenure as secretary of state. In July, Comey described Clinton’s conduct as extremely careless but said it did not warrant criminal charges.
