Questions tonight about Hillary Clinton's email one email in particular and whether there was ever an offer of quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI. It comes amid new numbers tonight of the key battlegrounds in Colorado Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump 45 to 37. In Florida tonight Clinton 48 trump 44 but within the margin of error. In Pennsylvania this evening Clinton 47%. To Trump's 41. And in the key state of Ohio tonight a dead heat. Poll at 45. Tonight word the Clinton camp is now trying to make a play for Arizona and perhaps Texas. I made that new headline over one of her emails here's ABC Cecilia Vega.

Now her emails creating new headaches or her campaign today the FBI releasing more details of its investigation. Including notes from an interview with an FBI staffer who accuses a top State Department official of pressuring the bureau to declassify in email found on Clinton's private server. That FBI staffer telling investigators the request amounted to a quote quid pro quo. Adding in exchange for marking the email unclassified. State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden. The FBI and the State Department say they deal never happened and that the email in question remained classified. So there was no quid pro quo. While there is no evidence Clinton's campaign was involved Donald Trump says not so fast that shows corruption at the highest level. And we can't let it happen. As American citizens still Clinton's campaign feeling so confident today began airing this ad in tax this she deserves your home.
