We might find out a lot more about the FBI's investigation of Clinton's emails tomorrow


Wednesday could be a big day for people looking to know more about the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail address and server  while she was Secretary of State.

According to CNN, the FBI is expected to publicly release a report they gave to the Department of Justice in July, which recommended that Clinton face no criminal charges for her handling of classified information while she was at the State Department.

The FBI is also expected to hand over notes from its interview with Clinton about the private email server, CNN reported.

Documents released in response to journalist requests

The information from the FBI will not be released to the general public, but instead to media outlets who requested the information via the Freedom of Information Act.

It is likely, however, that the outlets -- which include CNN and Reuters -- will make those documents public once they receive and have reviewed them.

Clinton 'careless,' but not law-breaking

The documents are expected to include the 30-page report the FBI sent to the U.S. Department of Justice earlier this summer when it recommended against pursuing criminal charges against Clinton. 

At the time, FBI director James B. Comey said Clinton was "extremely careless" in using a private email address and server while secretary of state, but hadn't willfully mishandled classified information. 

Clinton campaign not phased

The Clinton campaign reportedly told CNN it welcomed the release of the documents from the FBI.

"This is something that we wanted to have happen," campaign spokeswoman Kristina Schake reportedly told CNN.
