A U.S. House of Representatives committee said Tuesday the FBI had turned over "a number of documents" related to its investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state.
"Committee staff is currently reviewing the information that is classified SECRET. There are no further details at this time," a spokeswoman for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said in an email.
The Oversight committee, chaired by Representative Jason Chaffetz, had asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for information about its interview with Clinton.
FBI Director James Comey told Congress last month that Clinton's handling of classified information while using a private email server was "extremely careless," but that he would not recommend criminal charges against her.

Reuters and other news outlets have sought copies of the FBI's records regarding the investigation, including copies of interview summaries, under public records laws. The requests are still being processed, and FBI records officials have declined to say when copies might be released to the public.
