12:43 am
aberdeen, and, number two, that she intentionally mishandled it. >> reporter: the fbi's shocker coming just 11 days before the election. the day began like any other on board the campaign plane, clinton seen chatting with her top advisers, including huma aberdeen, unaware of the tidal wave about to hit. >> the polls are going to tighten. >> reporter: but while team clinton is in the air, the explosive political news >> breaking news that the fbi has reopened their investigation. >> into hillary clinton's. male e-mails. >> why now? >> even trump's campaign manager learning the news in realtime. >> that's extraordinary news. the americans deserve to know everything. >> but the clinton team remained in the dark. >> we just got off the plane. there was no wifi in the air.

significance of this newly discovered collection of e-mails and he admitted there is a significant risk of being misunderstood. >> i think this puts the fbi director in a unique and difficult position. given wa we know about how long it takes to complete fbi investigations, with 11 days to go, this is unlikely to be done by the election. >> reporter: tonight clinton doubling down in that press conference practically demanding mo confident that it will not hurt her chances on november 8. >> reporter: what would you say to a voter who 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.
