The FBI late Sunday night released additional documents related to the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, posting the information on its website and doing so without sending out a release or announcing the move.
WikiLeaks reported the news first.
The documents can be found in full on the FBI site and, contain information regarding the FBI's investigation into Clinton after it received computer hardware and additional emails from Clinton’s lawyers.
There are five sets of documents on the FBI site. In the first one, the FBI states that it found "that hostile foreign actors successfully gained access to the personal email accounts of individuals associated with whom Clinton was in regular contact and, in doing so, obtained emails sent to or received by Clinton on her personal account."
The first set also states that, of 940 e-mails associated with Clinton’s personal account from October 25, 2010 to Dec. 31, 2010, 56 have been identified as currently at the confidential level. Additionally, 302 of the 940 emails identified in the Gmail account were not found in the set of emails produced to the State Department in 2014. One of those 302 emails were classified as secret.
LawNewz reports that the documents appear to focus on computer hardware the agency obtained during the probe and communications between the State Department and law enforcement over whether documents included in the emails were classified.
LawNewz also notes that the unannounced posting of the documents fell while many people were watching the NFL Wildcard games and the Golden Globes telecast.
