WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton says FBI Director James Comey's letter to lawmakers about a newly discovered batch of emails is "unprecedented" and "'deeply troubling."

Clinton is repeating her calls for Comey to put out the "full and complete facts" about the new review of the emails.

She says: "Put it all out on the table."

Clinton spoke to campaign volunteers at a community center in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Meanwhile, a Democratic New York congressman appears to be accusing Comey of trying to sway the presidential election.

Rep. Gregory Meeks says it's "unbelievable" Comey, this close to the election, would disclose that the FBI is looking into a new set of emails that appear to be pertinent to the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Meeks and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus are supporting Clinton's calls for Comey to release more details of the review.

Donald Trump is accusing the Justice Department of doing everything it can to protect Clinton.

Trump is pointing to a disagreement between the DOJ and the FBI over its handling of the new emails pertaining to the investigation of Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.

Justice Department officials cautioned Comey against sending a letter to Congress, asserting that it was inconsistent with department policy intended to avoid the appearance of prosecutorial influence in elections.

But Trump tells a rally crowd in Phoenix, "The Department of Justice is trying their hardest to protect the criminal activity of Hillary Clinton."

He asks, "What's happened to the Justice Department?" and says this is what he means when he says that the "system is rigged."

Trump is also repeating his claim that the development represents the biggest political scandal since Watergate.

He says, "It's everybody's deepest hope that justice, at last, will be beautifully delivered."
