The Washington Post reports that 147 FBI agents are involved in the investigation surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email server and handling of classified material.
The report states that the large number of agents have been deployed to run down leads in the investigation, citing a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James Comey.
The Post reported that the FBI has accelerated its investigation because officials want to avoid potentially announcing any action close to the November election.
Comey has signaled that he is personally close to the probe into Clinton’s personal email account used during her time as secretary of State.
“What I can assure you is that I am very close personally to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need, including people and technology, and that it’s done the way the FBI tries to do all of it’s work: independently, competently and promptly,” Comey told lawmakers in early March.
