FBI investigators have recovered emails from Hillary Clinton's private server that the former secretary of state said had been deleted, according Bloomberg News and The New York Times, both of which cite unidentified U.S. officials. Clinton has said that her staff deleted about half of her 60,000 emails exchanged while secretary of state, finding them personal in nature. "One official said it had not been very hard for the FBI to recover the messages," The Times reports, suggesting the Clinton team didn't "wipe" the server. It's not clear how many of the emails have been salvaged.
The FBI is investigating the potential storage and handling of classified information on the server. Clinton is not accused of any wrongdoing, but the FBI inquiry is expected to last for several more months, dragging the controversy well into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
