During the second presidential debate on Sunday evening, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said that she deleted “personal emails, not official” emails following her tenure as Secretary of State. 

Fact-Check: FALSE. 

According to FBI Director James Comey, “the FBI also discovered several thousand work-related e-mails that were not among the group of 30,000 e-mails returned by Secretary Clinton to State in 2014.” 

Federal investigators concluded that Clinton’s lawyers deleted nearly half of the 60,000 emails on her server.
