Donald Trump seized on the news Friday that the FBI has renewed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, saying law enforcement officials now have a chance to “right the horrible mistake that they made” by refusing to recommend criminal charges against the Democrat earlier this year.

FBI Director James Comey informed Congress shortly before Mr. Trump’s rally in New Hampshire that his agents “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the Clinton investigation.”

“I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made,” Mr. Trump told supporters. “This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understood and it is everybody’s hope that it is about to be corrected.”

Mr. Trump has been highly critical of FBI since it recommended over the summer that no criminal charges be levied against Mrs. Clinton.

Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before,” Mr. Trump said. “We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
