Los angeles : In a relief to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, the FBI on Sunday said that it has found no evidence of criminality in a new batch of emails.

In a letter to Congressmen, FBI Director James Comey said that the agency had finished its review and found nothing to alter its original conclusion.

His July statements read that Clinton while being Secretary of State was careless but not criminal in handling sensitive material on her private email server.

The issue flared up again in October with the discovery of new "pertinent" emails which were reportedly found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.

Weiner is the estranged husband of one of the Democratic presidential candidate's closest advisers.

Following the dismissal, Clinton will now focus on her closing campaign message while Trump is expected to continue with his roasting and opponent accusing by again alleging that the FBI is covering for her.

Only 2 days are left for voting but the dust kicked up by this story won't have fully settled by the time Americans head to the polls.

Once this election is over, there should be serious soul-searching within the FBI and the media about how this saga played out.

A new poll on Sunday before news of the FBI letter broke suggested a four-point lead for Clinton putting her ahead of close opponent Trump.
