Comey would not be opening this investigation unless there was something to look at. The Police agencies are very mindful of their political masters and never go after them unless they have real evidence, I would conclude that, they have the goods on Clinton, they would not be doing this otherwise, considering the person they are going after, and the stakes involved.
