The Washington Post had reported late Sunday that 147 agents were involved in the investigation surrounding Clinton's email arrangement, which raised eyebrows.

That was based on information provided by a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James Comey, according to the Post.
 
The report has since been revised to say that "dozens" of FBI agents have been tasked with running down leads in the case. Officials told the newspaper that "fewer than 50" are involved.
 
NBC News reported that there are "currently about 12 FBI agents working full-time on the case," citing an anonymous former federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation.
