welcome to the "overnight news." i'm elaine quijana. with over a week to election day, hillary clinton is taking new heat from a political fire storm that rekinled. in july, the fbi declined to recommend criminal charges over clinton's handling of classified information on a private e-mail server when she was secretary of state. now, fbi director james comey says the bureau is reviewing newly discovered e-mail that could be relevant to the investigation. republican vice presidential nominee mike pence reacted to comey's announcement. he spoke with john dickerson on face the nation. before we talk about the latest revelation in the fbi server case, let's step back for a minute.
both you and donald trump think that this was wrongly decided in july, when director comey found out. evidence of an exchange of classified information. whose fault is it that it was wrongly decided? >> i think that is really an open question, but also, the director of the fbi's decision -- this last july to, to, not go forward with recommending charges was deeply troubling to millions of americans and us included. it followed on the heels of when former president clinton met on a private aircraft with the attorney general. and days later, you had the director of the fbi literally lay out a case of the mishandling of classified information on a private server that hillary clinton operated. while she was secretary of state. and had a private family foundation, taking money from foreign, foreign companies, corporations and foreign countries. then two days later the director of the fbi went to capitol hill and literally undercut his own decision by confirming to the congress that what hillary clinton had said about classified information was not true.
that she had e-mailed classified information, that in fact there had been e-mails marked classified. i think it was deeply troubling to millions of americans. but we commend the fbi and the director on their decision to keep their word. to the congress and move forward. now thre is new information. >> troubling is allows you to be in both place without saying it is exactly somebody's fault. you are alleging also the attorney general put pressure on the fbi director, a pretty strong claim. that change his mind. do you think it changed his mine. he was going to grow bring charges and changed his mind because the attorney general put pressure on him. >> john, i am not alleging that. you just suggested it. >> why bring up the meeting with clinton then? >> because i think the meeting was troubling. >> what does troubling sunshine. >> because of an industrious local tv reporter you found that that former president clinton got on a private aircraft, had a private clandestine meeting with the attorney general just days before the fbi decided not to recommend charges.
in a case where we, we have a four-star general today who is facing very serious legal consequences for mishandling classified information, yet here again we see a double standard. where the american people believe that there is a, there is a different standard for hillary clinton and for the clintons than there is for the rest of us. what the decision this week showed, is even 11 days before an election, no within is above the law. the fbi director stepped forward. kept his word to the congress and american people and told us there is more information and investigation is now reopened. >> you say troubling. mr. trump has said he will investigate hillary clinton if he is made president. have his justice department investigate her. would a part of that investigation be this meeting between the attorney general and bill clinton? as part of the investigation of hillary clinton? >> i think that -- it is troubling, seems like it is worthy of an investigation. >> i think, at the end of the day the american people have a right to know why when she was secretary of state in charge of
our foreign policy, operating a private foundation taking money from foreign governments. why she had a server. >> the meeting with bill clinton and the attorney general is that worthy of an investigation? >> the mishandling of classified information in this case, a violation of law for any other american is worthy of investigation. >> let me ask you this. >> let's be clear. hillary clinton refused to turn over 35,000 e-mails. i truly do believe that as we approach the election, hillary clinton ought to turn over 30,000 e-mails to the public and press and let the american people fully examine the core . >> suggesting comey is a partisan interfering with the electorate is dangerous and unfair, the clinton campaign going after comey. donald trump has been going after comey and the justice department on this issue for four months is that also as
kelly ann conway says dangerous and unfair? >> i think that questioning the decision by the federal bureau of investigation, this summer is something that millions of americans have done. donald trump has expressed the frustration of millions of americans. >> he said politically motivated. she says is dangerous and unfair. sound like shys calling out the clintons. for doing exactly what donald trump has been doing. >> john, you know what we are seeing now -- is the old playbook of the politics of personal destruction and that the clintons have rolled out throughout their career and they're targeting the director of the fbi and questioning his personal integrity. >> these are donald trump's words. governor these are donald trump's word. a disgusting example of of how badly career politicians have rigged the system. that's a shot. that's taking a shot at the fbi and director comey for that original decision. >> well that original decision was really incomprehensible to millions. to arrive at a place where even in his testimony before the
congress, and, in that long, press conference that he gave, john, that, that literally hillary clinton had classified information on a private server, that she said she didn't have that she e-mailed classified information she said she didn't do, all of these things misrepresented, mishandling classified inf mags then to conclude she was extremely careless an there would be no recommending of charges. that to me is the kind of double standard the american people are weary of. but i think people are very encouraged by the decision this week. >> let me ask you. >> by the fbi to say we have a large volume, as ig being reported in the press, large volume of new information, we are going to investigate it in a thorough and timely way. >> 21 million people have vote is there any real evidence that the election is being stolen, ayou are watching what the voting is going under way. >> i don't think there has been a suggestion about it being stolen.
>> trump said if he lost pennsylvania it would only be if it was stolen. he used that word. >> let me say when donald trump and i have talked about a rigged cyst team, i mean the documented overwhelming bias by many in the national media, lot of respect for you, john. a lot of people in the national media with overwhelming negative coverage of donald trump, gives the american people the feeling that the national media gets up every day and does half of hillary clinton's work for her. we also know voter fraud has happened in polling places and precincts around the country. just calling on every american to find a we to respectfully participate in their local election process to ensure that when we, when we achieve that victory on november 8 also a victory for american democracy. >> we'll be right back.
