The FBI has once again put itself at the center of the presidential debate.

On Tuesday afternoon, the bureau posted on its website internal documents related to an old investigation into former president Bill Clinton’s pardon of a fugitive Democratic donor, Marc Rich the Washington Post reports. 

A spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s campaign questioned why the FBI would post inflammatory material just a week before the election.

“Will FBI be posting docs on Trump’s housing discrimination in ’70s?” asked the spokesman, Brian Fallon.

The FBI said it posted the information in light of a recent Freedom of Information Act request.

The post came about a week after FBI Director James Comey’s controversial decision to announce that it’s reviewing additional emails related to the investigation of Hillary Clinton, even though there’s no evidence yet of wrongdoing.

“Americans now look at the FBI and see a political entity, not a nonpartisan entity — and that has huge ramifications for the FBI and for all of us,” said Matt Miller, former chief spokesman for the Justice Department and a Clinton supporter. “It sows disbelief in our system of government and is hugely toxic.”
