The Wall Street Journal: Justice Department says it will work with FBI on Clinton email probe

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department said in a letter to lawmakers Monday it would work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the Clinton email investigation, though the letter appeared unlikely to tamp down the emotions surrounding the issue.

In a letter sent by Peter Kadzik, head of the Justice Department’s legislative affairs office, officials sought to reassure angry Democrats that the new review of emails potentially related to Hillary Clinton would be done as swiftly as possible. Several Democratic lawmakers had written the Justice Department demanding more details on the emails as soon as they could be provided.

“We assure you that the Department will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resources and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible,” Kadzik wrote in the letter. “We hope this information is helpful.”

Clinton, Trump Address FBI Email Inquiry

(1:24)

Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump addressed the FBI’s new email inquiry on Monday.

The letter was signed by Kadzik, but it written in response to an inquiry directed at Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey. It will likely do little to temper frustration from Democrats who have questioned whether Comey has improperly interjected himself into the presidential race.
