Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump welcomed news on Friday that the FBI would investigate additional emails it found related to Democrat Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server to determine whether they contain classified information.

"I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made," Trump told a campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire.
The FBI's head said that it is unclear how significant the new materials may be.
In a letter to several U.S. congressional committee chairmen, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said that he "cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work."
The announcement was an unexpected development less than two weeks before the U.S. presidential election on November 8, where Clinton is the Democratic Party's candidate and the front-runner in opinion polls.
