Hillary Clinton on Friday demanded that the FBI explain its decision to inform Congress that it was reviewing new emails related to her private email server, calling it “imperative” that the bureau do so.

She also addressed reports that the FBI’s review is connected to a federal investigation of Rep. Anthony Weiner’s lewd messages with a teenage girl.

“We’ve heard these rumors, we don’t know what to believe,” Clinton told reporters during a short gaggle in Iowa. “That is why it is incumbent on the FBI to tell us what they are talking about.

Because right now your guess is as good mine and I don’t think that is good enough.”

Earlier Friday, FBI Director James Comey said that an unrelated investigation had brought to light new emails that needed to be looked into, because they were “pertinent” to the investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
