Hillary Clinton just wrapped up a brief press conference to discuss the continuing FBI investigation of her emails when she complained that FBI Director Comey only sent his letter to Republicans and not to Democrats:
Hillary Clinton calls on FBI to release “all the information it has” on newly discovered emails: "Let's get it out" https://t.co/XXh9cCPr56

That, however, looks to be a lie:
Fact check: Contrary to what Clinton said, Comey sent letter to both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. @benyc

She went on to say that the FBI needs to share whatever information they have with voters:
More Clinton: If they (the FBI) are going to be sending this letter they need to share whatever facts they have with the American people.

Clinton on FBI: "If they're going to be sending this kind of letter…then they need to share whatever facts they claim to have."
