Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton addressed on Monday the latest news about the FBI probe into her private email server during an Ohio event.

"I'm sure a lot of you may be asking what this new email story is about and why in the world the FBI would decide to jump into an election with no evidence of any wrong doing with just days to go," Clinton said as her supporters booed the bureau. "That's a good question."

"For those of you who are concerned about my using personal email, I understand, and as I've said, I'm not making excuses, I've said it was a mistake and I regret it. And now they apparently want to look at emails of one of my staffers, and by all means they should look at them," she said. "And I am sure they will reach the same conclusion they did when they looked at my emails for the last year: There is no case here."

"And they said it wasn't even a close call, and I think most people have decided a long time ago what they think about all of this — now what people are focused on is choosing the next president and commander-in-chief of the United States of America," Clinton added, turning to a critique of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
