FBI Announces "No Charges Are Appropriate" In Clinton Email Investigation

From the New York Times:

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, on Tuesday said the F.B.I. is recommending no charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a personal email server while secretary of state.

Mr. Comey said “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against Mrs. Clinton for her handling of classified information on her private server. But he said Mrs. Clinton and her staff were “extremely careless” in their use of email.

The F.B.I.’s recommendation to the Justice Department will have an enormous impact on the presidential election.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Friday that she would accept whatever recommendation she received from the F.B.I.

The statement by Mr. Comey concluded an investigation that began a year ago when the inspector general for the intelligence agencies told the Justice Department that he had found classified information among a small sampling of emails Mrs. Clinton had sent and received.

The inspector general, I. Charles McCullough III, said the emails contained information that was classified at the time they were sent but were not marked classified, and the information should never have been sent on an unclassified system.

"No intentional misconduct."

For months it has been obvious: if Hillary was charged over her use of a private email server her haters would point and say how surprised that the FBI did a great job.

If she was not, they would still scream that she is guilty and that the system was rigged in her favor.

In regard to those that hate her, there was never going to be a way for her to "win."

Here's the full press conference:
