On Friday, Oct. 28, federal law enforcement stated that new emails related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server were discovered. 

The emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s computer, whom he shared with his former partner, Huma Abedin. Abedin is currently a top aide for Clinton.  

F.B.I. director James B. Comey stated that the emails arose from an unrelated investigation involving Weiner’s inappropriate communications with a minor in North Carolina.

With only days before the election, voters and officials on both sides of the ticket are upset about these recent revelations. Democrats want the F.B.I. to release the contents of the messages so that voters can see that they do not contain anything alarming, while Republicans want them to be released in case they do contain information that would harm Clinton’s chances on Tuesday.

“At this point, no one is really sure what is in those emails,” said senior Jessica Chang.  “That should be a little concerning to voters. Then again, the emails probably contain nothing of great importance.”

These events have hurt Clinton at a critical time in this election.  A new poll from The Washington Post states that one-third of voters are less likely to vote for Clinton after the F.B.I.’s review.  

“I think this recent development is just more proof that there is a lot of corruption in government,” said senior Kurt Castro.  “This definitely does not help Clinton’s image, but I still don’t think it is enough to cause her to lose the election.”

Before Friday, Clinton seemed to be looking strong in the polls. One day before the F.B.I.’s announcement, Real Clear Politics showed Clinton was leading by 5 points. One day after Comey alerted Congress about the emails, ABC News calculated that Clinton was leading by a mere one percent.

Comey stated that he does not know if the content of the emails will be released to the public before Election Day. Voters will decide if these recent events affect who they bubble in on Tuesday.

“This election is really just full of surprises, isn’t it?” said senior Owen Mastalir.
