HILLARY CLINTON: "There is no case here." That's what Hillary Clinton has to say about the FBI's investigation into a new trove of her emails. Little is publicly known about the emails... besides that they were found during an unrelated probe into former congressman Anthony Weiner -- estranged husband of top Clinton aide, Huma Abedin. But Donald Trump is using the email controversy to suggest the woman he calls "Crooked Hillary" is indeed corrupt. (SOUNDBITE) REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE, DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "And I have to give the FBI credit, that was so bad what happened originally. And it took guts for Director Comey to make the move that he made..." The White House says FBI Director James Comey is a man of integrity and is NOT trying to influence the election. But some voters on the streets of Washington believe it WILL have an impact. (SOUNDBITE) (English) TONY CRAIG KEENER, UNDECIDED VOTER, SAYING: "I don't think she'd be a good candidate if she is found guilty." (SOUNDBITE) (English) RAVI DESAI, UNDECIDED VOTER, SAYING: "I think it will affect people's votes. People are very much concerned about what's going on." (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHAD JACKSON, HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTER, SAYING: "Leave her alone. It's not like it's top secret stuff on her emails. Leave her alone. You keep bugging her about some damn emails. Leave it alone..." It's still uncertain whether the email controversy will hurt her. But Clinton is telling voters to focus on the candidate most fit to be president - she says that candidate is Hillary Clinton.
