ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) STORY: When asked by reporters about the FBI investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's emails, vice presidential running-mate Tim Kaine said, "Gotta read a little more." Kaine's comments came during a campaign visit at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida. The FBI is investigating more emails as part of a probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email system, it said on Friday, in a new twist to the U.S. presidential campaign that could damage the Democratic candidate just 11 days before Election Day. Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said in a letter to the Republican U.S. congressional committee chairmen that the agency would determine whether the additional emails contained classified information, adding that he did not know "how long it will take us to complete this additional work." The announcement came as Clinton and Republican opponent Donald Trump enter the final stretch of campaigning ahead of the Nov. 8 election. She leads Trump in opinion polls after a bruising campaign in which she has struggled to convince voters that she is trustworthy and honest. Fresh revelations about her use of email are unlikely to assuage those concerns, and questions around the FBI investigation will now likely dog her in the coming days as she campaigns across battleground states.
