The FBI is expediting its review of emails potentially linked to Hillary Clinton after bureau Director James Comey’s surprise announcement may have upended the presidential election.

The FBI had planned to review the emails over the next several weeks. But amid increasing criticism, the bureau has accelerated its timetable, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

Still, the FBI has not determined whether it will publicly disclose the results of the inquiry.

Since Comey announced a renewed investigation that may have nothing to do with Clinton, Trump has surged in the polls.

“While I disagree with those who suggest you should have kept the FBI’s discovery secret until after the election, I agree that your disclosure did not go far enough,” Iowa Sen. Charles E. Grassley wrote to Comey. “Unfortunately, your letter failed to give Congress and the American people enough context to evaluate the significance or full meaning of this development.”
