Twitter went nuts after the FBI announced it was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
In a letter to Congress Friday — less than two weeks before the presidential election — the director of the FBI said his team had uncovered new emails that “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” (RELATED: FBI Re-Opens Investigation Into Hillary Clinton’s Emails)
“I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” James Comey wrote.
People on Twitter reacted accordingly.

Hillary Clinton lied about her emails that put our national security at risk. She is unfit to be the President.

So serious question.In the rare event Hillary goes to jail what happens with the election? Do they replace her? Do they lose representation?

The FBI originally closed the investigation into Clinton after determining that no one should face criminal charges.
