The Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives says it’s back on.

He says the FBI has informed Jason Chaffetz that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails is resuming.

FBI Director James Comey says they are reviewing new emails from Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, according to CNN.

Comey previously said that Clinton and her staff were “extremely careless” in handling classified information and that 110 emails sent or received on her server were classified at the time they were sent or received. Those emails were part of 52 different chains of messages, and eight of the chains were deemed top secret.

Clinton also used the email while traveling abroad and it’s possible that hostile actors hacked into the server successfully, though FBI investigators didn’t find direct evidence of a successful hack.

Despite their carelessness, Comey said the FBI found no “clear evidence” of intentional lawbreaking at the time.

Here is the letter that Comey sent to members of Congress.
