A fired-up Hillary Clinton has raged against a protester who denounced her husband as a sexual predator.

Just minutes into a speech in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a heckler shouted "Bill Clinton is a rapist" as he waved a sign with the same statement.

The Democratic nominee briefly lost her cool, condemning the behaviour of Donald Trump supporters.

"I am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and the anger of people who support Donald Trump," she told the crowd, pointing at the protester.

"It is time for us to say no, we're not going backwards, we're going forward into a brighter future. For the next seven days, focus on what's important. Don't get distracted. Don't get diverted."

Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist, radio host and supporter of Mr Trump, has offered his listeners $5000 in cash to disrupt Ms Clinton's rallies. The protester's sign featured Mr Jones' website URL.

The protester was ejected from the rally.

But in more bad news for the Clinton camp, the FBI has released documents relating to an investigation into Bill Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich.

Mr Clinton pardoned the financier and international fugitive on the last day of his presidency in 2001. Mr Rich's ex-wife was a wealthy donor to the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile in Miami, Florida, Mr Trump again told his supporters the election is rigged, and urged voters who've already cast a ballot to rethink who they're supporting.

Four states in the US allow early voters to change their minds up to three times. Mr Trump says it's not too late if Democratic voters have buyer's remorse.

"You can change your early ballot if you think you've made a mistake - a lot of stuff has come out since you voted."

While most polls still favour Ms Clinton to win, the race has tightened in the past week. Poll aggregator FiveThirtyEight gives Ms Clinton a 70 percent chance of winning, with more paths to victory in the Electoral College than Mr Trump.

Florida is key for both candidates - if Ms Clinton wins the state, it's virtually impossible for Mr Trump to become President.

"No state is more important, and it's close," one of Ms Clinton's aides told reporters. "It's a state that Trump has to win... we don't believe he has any path without Florida."
