Hillary Clinton may have been pardoned in the FBI's shocking email probe, but the 69-year-old isn't out of the woods just yet — and it could even cost her the election!

As Radar previously reported, just two days before the final voting round, the FBI concluded sifting through "a large volume" of Clinton's emails that were discovered during Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal raid.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusion that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton," FBI Director James Comey released in a statement on November 6. "I am very grateful to the professionals at the FBI for doing an extraordinary amount of high-quality work in a short period of time."

Despite being absolved, the damage may already be done for Hillary, as many voters have already cast their ballots.

According to TIME magazine, Clinton's poll numbers sank in many states following the scandal, with some supporters questioning the candidate's honesty.

Meanwhile, Republicans quickly questioned Comey's findings. "He's mishandled this investigation from the beginning and this proved it yet again," Donald Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told MSNBC.

"If FBI conclusions remain unchanged, that means she still was reckless & careless, still lied about classified info," she later wrote on Twitter.

House Speaker Paul Ryan released a statement urging that "regardless of this decision," the Democratic nominee was still untrustworthy and should be regarded as such. In other words, as Trump nicknamed her, "Crooked Hillary."
