The FBI has reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server — used during her time secretary of state — after discovering new emails, has learned.

In a letter to top members of Congress, FBI Director James Comey wrote that the bureau has "learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation."

"In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton's personal server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony," he said on Friday.

"I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to asses their importance to our investigation," Comey added.

The move comes after presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized the bureau for dropping the case.

Speaking to supporters Friday afternoon in Manchester, N.H., Trump thanked the FBI for finally having the "courage" to "right the horrible mistake that they made."

House Speaker Paul Ryan released a statement, calling the decision "long overdue."

Meanwhile, Comey gave no indication on how long the investigation would last — but it's just in time for voting!
