Just In: FBI Chief Says No Grounds For Criminal Charges After Clinton Email Probe

7

FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday said Hillary Clinton and her staff were “extremely careless” in using a private email server during her time as secretary of state, but will not recommend criminal prosecution by the Justice Department.

Comey said there was evidence to suggest a disregard of standing security protocols, bit said the FBI findings determined that “no reasonable prosecutor” would likely bring criminal charges. The findings now go to the Justice Department.

Comey said investigators reviewed more than 30,000 emails turned over to the agency and “fragments” of others were deleted, identifying about 50 in the “secret” or “confidential” categories.

Comey said there was no evidence that Clinton or his staff deleted emails with the intention to hide contents.

The comments come after FBI agents interviewed Clinton for more than three hours Saturday, suggesting that the investigation could be drawing to a close.

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, told MSNBC that she was pleased “to have the opportunity to assist the department in bringing its review to a conclusion,” but gave no details of the questions and responses during the session.

As in the past, Clinton asserted that she “never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.” She said, however, that some might have been retroactively branded classified during the process to prepare it for public release. She said she had “no knowledge” of the investigators’ timeline.

  1. Well of course not. Comey was threatened by the White House/Obama to ignore her transgressions so she can be coronated as next President of the US.

  2. If I didn’t believe that Hashem runs the world, I would be crying at the ludicrousness, hypocrisy, and criminality of this entire affair.

    Radham should have been jailed months ago, but apparently Hashem has other plans for her. And us.

    Hashem yerachem.

  3. Trump will have to face an election. Likely not his thought that it was coming. Polls say Clinton is the best. I wonder how the rabid hate can stand the news today. It must be real to think G-d is to be feared. None of them feared G-d by running around saying she was going to be indicted. Now we know our King has a plan more than a skip and miss election. Go Clinton. The world can use less hate from Trump.

  4. I would like this man for my lawyer when I rob a bank so he can defend me and explain by defining what rob a bank means. Remember Bill Clinton in the definition of what is, is. Hillary did underhanded things but it is not bad it just is, is.
