5:32 pm
>> reporter: the october surprise came in the form of a three-paragraph letter to congress from f.b.i. director james comey who wrote that agents on an unrelated case had learned of the exeftance of e- mails that appeared to be pertinent to the clinton investigation. sources tell cbs news, thate unrelated case involves former new york congressman anthony weiner, who allegedly sent sexually charged messages to a 15-year-old girl. weiner is newly separated from clinton's longest serving aide, f huma abedin, who was traveling with clinton today. devices confiscated from weiner and abedin may have been the source of those new clinton-ee related e-mails, which the f.b.i. director said, must "be reviewed to determine whether they contain classified information." comey's letter blindsided clinton and her top aides who had been briefing reporters moments earlier. >> ohio, we are also winning the early vote. >> reporter: paul ryan urged
5:33 pm
for secretary clinton until this matter is fully resolved. >> the f.b.i. is completing thef investigation. >> reporter: comey closed the yearlong probe into clinton'sar use of a private server nearly four months ago.rl >> we did not find clear evidence that secretary clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information.f >> reporter: clinton campaign chairman john podesta said this afternoon, "we have no idea what those new e-mails are. the director owes it to the american people to immediatelypl provide the full details of what he is now examining." f.b.i. director comey said it's unclear if these materials are significant or not and warned that it could take longer than 11 days, scott, to determine that.te >> pelley: 11 days to the election. now let's go to major garrett covering the trump campaign. >> i need to open with a very critical breaking news
5:34 pm
>> reporter: donald trump broke: the news about the reopened investigation to supporters in manchester, new hampshire, finding vindication in the f.b.i. move. >> this was a grave miscarriage of justice that the american >> pelley: this is a cbs news special report. i'm scott pelley. speak for the first time about the news today that the f.b.i. has reopened an investigation of her e-mails. here she is now. >> ... are significant or not. i'm confident, whatever they are, will not change the conclusion reached in july. therefore, it's imperative that the bureau explain this issue in question-- whatever it is-- without can any delay. so i look forward to moving
5:35 pm
important challenges facing the american people, winning on november 8, and working with all americans to build a better future for our country. thank you. >> mrs. clinton, have you or any of your advisers heard from comey or anyone else at the f.b.i. today? and are you concerned at all that these new e-mails that they say they've found will in any way reveal classified that you sent or received? >> no. we have not been contacted by first we knew about it is, i assume, when you knew about it, when this letter sent to republican members of the house was released. so we don't know the facts, which is why we are calling on the f.b.i. to release all the information that it has. even director comey noted that this new information may not be significant. so let's get it out. >> secretary clinton--
5:36 pm
what would you say to a voter who right now will be seeing you and hearing what you're saying saying, "i didn't trust her before. i don't trust her anymore right now," and they're heading to the ballot box tomorrow? >>, you know, i think people a long time ago made up their minds about the e-mails. i think that's factored in to what people think, and now they're choosing a president. so i would urge everybody to get out and vote early in all the because i think americans want a president who can lead our country, who can get the economy working for everyone, not just those at the top, and who can bring our country together. i offer that. i can do that. and i am very confident that the american people know that, and we're going to continue to discuss what's at stake in this election because i believe that it's one of the most consequential elections ever. >> right here. >> thanks very much.
5:37 pm
e-mails were found on devices ds that belonged to your aid huma abedin and her husband, anthony weiner. you have spoken to huma? was she tiebl give you any information about that? >> you know, we've heard these rumors. we don't know what to believe. and i'm sure there will be even more rumors. that's why it is incumbent upon the f.b.i. to tell us what they're talking about, jeff. because right now, your guess is as good as mine. and i don't think that's good enough. so we've made it ver if they're going to be sending this kind of letter that is only going originally to republican members of the house, that they need to share whatever facts they claim to have with the american people. and that's what i expect to happen. >> thanks very much, everybody. >> thank you, all. >> pelley: hillary clinton in
5:38 pm
the revelation today that the f.b.i. is reopening its investigation into whether classified information was exchanged on the private e-mail servers that she kept while she was secretary of state. you'll recall that the justice department closed that investigation in july with no charges. but today it was revealed by the f.b.i. director that thousands more e-mails have been discovered on a laptop that was shared by her abedin, and her husband, and now the f.b.i. is looking to see whether there is classified information on those e-mails. there has been no determination on that yet. john dickerson, our cbs news political director, is with us now. john, hillary clinton said to the f.b.i. in that news conference, "release what you have so we'll know what we're talking about." >> reporter: that's right. there was some tension in her
5:39 pm
insistent, quite urgent about getting all this information out that the f.b.i. has for the american people. and that insistence, obviously, comes from the fact that there are 11 days until the election. but when asked what a voter should make of all of this, hillary clinton said she thought it was kind of already baked into their decision making and that they were going to decide on a whole other set of terms about who could be better for the country and a better president. but those two things are at odds. obviously, they worry about what could have on people as they try to make their decision. >> pelley: we also have our major garrett, who has been covering the trump campaign from the very beginning. major of major, one of the things that hillary clinton said at the very beginning of that news conference was that she expects the result of this new investigation to be exactly like the one back in july, which found that she had been careless with classified information but found no criminal intent.
5:40 pm
trump is welcoming the f.b.i.'s decision to reopen the investigation, scott. but up until just last night, he was very critical about the original investigation, essentially calling it a miscarriage of justice, saying that the f.b.i. did not pursue all the relevant facts nearly aggressively enough, and others in american life who have done-- in donald trump's words-- far less have been prosecuted to a much greater extent. that has been donald tru continuousing criticism of this f.b.i. investigation until today when this october surprise landed quite welcomingly into his arms and his campaign's arms, and they began to exploit it almost immediately. one interesting to point out, scott-- donald trump's running mate, indiana governor, mike pence, said today he also wants the f.b.i. to release all pertinent information and do so as soon as possible. >> pelley: let's go back to john dickerson. john, october surprises aren't what they used to be.
5:41 pm
million vote have already been cast. what effect is this likely to have? >> reporter: october surprises, there used to be one in october, not an entire month full of them. i think the biggest effect here is going to be-- or could be on, in terms of democrats, weakening turnout, just kind of depressing democrats. now, as hillary clinton said and as democrats i talked to today, is they think that people have already made up their minds about hillary clinton and the server issue. and so they don of a problem. on the republican side, the republicans like the fact that this puts hillary clinton in the center of the news spotlight on her toughest issue where when she's explaining herself, voters aren't immediately-- don't immediately believe her, at least some of the ones that i've talked to expect it keeps donald trump out of the spotlight expect they've seen when he's not not spotlight, reluctant republicans who think he's too risky tend to drift back towards him. >> pelley: this was a big
5:42 pm
written by the f.b.i. director, went to the chairman of the relevant congressional committees. you heard hillary clinton say several times that this was released to republicans in congress. well, that's because the republicans in the house are the chairman of the relevant committees. john dickerson, donald trump, he's going to make a great deal out of this. >> he's going to make a great deal of it and try to tie it to hillary clinton can't change washington. if he's able to do that, republicans are hopeful they can turn this into something. >> pelley: john, thank you very much. some of you now will be returning to local programming. for others, the cbs evening news will continue in just a moment. i'm scott pelley, cbs news in
