Endorsing Hillary Clinton
The FBI has proposed no charges against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for using a private email server to conduct government business while she was still serving as secretary of state to the US.
After over a year of investigation, the FBI said it will recommend to the Justice Department that no prosecution is warranted saying “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against Hillary Clinton.
Director James Comey said in a press conference on Tuesday that while there was “evidence of potential violations” regarding the handling of classified information, “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against Clinton.
“From the group of 30,000 emails returned to the State Department in 2014, some 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received,” said Comey.
“Eight of those chains contained information that was top secret at the time they were sent; 36 of those chains contained secret information at the time, and eight contained confidential information at the time.”
