There’s been no shortage of scandals during the US presidential election campaign.

But now an old one has come back to haunt Hillary Clinton.

Thats right, the email scandal is rearing its head again – prompting the FBI to re-open their investigation into her use of a private email server.

With just 11 days to go before the election, it’s not good news for the Democratic candidate.

So, why is the FBI re-opening their investigation?

Well, FBI director James Comey has penned a letter to a few Republicans stating that he has been made aware of emails that could be relevant to the investigation.

But he did say the FBI wasn’t sure if the emails were significant and he couldn’t provide a time frame.

The issue has dogged Clinton from the start of her campaign, with Republicans vowing to continue their investigations even if she wins office.

You might be wondering how the candidates have reacted to the news?

Well, it’s as you might have expected.

Clinton made no mention of the investigation at a rally in Iowa, ignoring questions from reporters as she got off her plane.

She did however,  tell her supporters that “anything can happen” in the final days before the election.

Meanwhile Donald Trump is making the most of it.

“I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made,” Mr Trump said during a rally in New Hampshire.

What do you think of the latest development? Will it impact Hillary Clinton’s campaign?
