The FBI has announced it is investigating new emails sent by Hillary Clinton on a private server during her time as Secretary of State, sending her campaign into panic mode just eleven days before the presidential election.

The emails were found during an investigation into illicit text messages between former congressman, Anthony Weiner, and a 15-year-old girl, according to the New York Times. Huma Abedin, Mr Weiner’s wife, is one of Mrs Clinton’s closest aides and was pictured with her yesterday as the news broke.

Moments after the FBI’s director James Comey announced the effective re-opening of the Clinton email investigation, Donald Trump seized the moment to go for the jugular at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, calling the announcement “bigger than Watergate”.

Meanwhile Mrs Clinton appeared blindsided by the news, she and her inner circle were all on board a plane and without Internet access when Mr Comey’s letter emerged.

They can’t get solid reception at Highway 1806 in North Dakota, where they’re calling me from, so they’re deciding how to upload the content quickly. Phone reception begins to break up.

Police have just arrested 144 protestors–they call themselves water protectors–and over the phone I can hear Dallas describing how a private security agent brandished an AR-15. Dean shouts that they’re heading to find a strong internet connection, then hangs up. Meanwhile, I chat with Kandi to find out what’s been going on.

“I’m out there with my three year-old daughter, looking in the face of police in full riot gear, with mace in cans the size of small fire extinguishers, with their huge guns like something out of Rambo,” said Mossett, who’s been demonstrating along Highway 1806, the site of the standoff between water protectors and law enforcement.
