On Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey said that “no charges are appropriate” for Hillary Clinton after an investigation into her private email arrangement as Secretary of State.
During a press conference from FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., Comey said, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
“To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences,” Comey said. “To the contrary. Those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions, but that’s not what we’re deciding now.”
“As a result, although Department of Justice makes final decisions on matters like this, we are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case.”
