The Trump and Clinton teams agree: The FBI must release more information on new emails


In an unusual moment of agreement this election cycle, representatives of both the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns are demanding the FBI release more information surrounding its review of new emails related to Clinton's private email server.

The FBI announced the review on Friday, in a three-paragraph letter to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In the letter, FBI Director James Comey wrote that the new probe would seek to determine if those emails contained classified information.

Here is the full text of Comey's letter to members of Congress.

Both teams demand more information

But top advisers of both the Clinton and Trump campaign said on Friday that the letter did not provide enough information -- especially considering the political significance of the announcement. 

"It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election," Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta wrote in a statement

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway agreed.

Conway called for more information during an appearance on MSNBC.

Reporters also publicly wondered why Comey did not release more details of the review.

Here is the Clinton campaign's statement calling for more information.
