FBI rebukes Clinton but recommends ‘no charges’ in email investigation
The threat of criminal charges hanging over Hillary Clinton was finally lifted by the FBI on Tuesday – just hours before the presumptive Democratic nominee for president was due to begin campaigning with Barack Obama for the first time this election cycle.
At a press conference in Washington, FBI director James Comey announced the end of the year-long investigation into whether Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state warranted prosecution under laws designed to protect classified government data.
Though highly critical of the “extremely careless” way in which emails were handled, Comey said the FBI would not be recommending that prosecutors seek charges in the case. …
This was a major obstacle that could have derailed her. Clinton’s pre-ordained path to the Whitehouse just got a lot smoother.
