CNN: State Department ‘Totally Floored’ by the FBI Reopening Its Investigation

‘Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told us just a short time ago that the first time the State Department heard about the FBI reopening the investigation is when these news reports’

BALDWIN: "Elise Labott is our CNN global affairs correspondent who has reaction from the State Department regarding the news from FBI and -- and Elise, I understand state was also caught off guard?"
LABOTT: "Totally floored, Brooke. And in fact, deputy State Department spokesman Mark Toner told us a short time ago that the first time the State Department had heard about the FBI reopening the investigation was when these news reports broke. So what that means we don't know. Does that mean that these are not from the e-mail trove the State Department handed over? Does this have to do with other e-mails not related to the State Department? We really don't know, all we know right now is that the State Department has not been officially notified that the FBI is reopening its investigation."
