An FBI investigation did not recommend charging Hillary Clinton with any criminal offenses regarding her improper handling of classified information. FBI Director James Comey did say, however, that Clinton was extremely careless in procedures concerning classified material, and that she did send, receive, and store classified information on an unauthorized server. Director Comey also said that if any of his staff handled classified information in the same manner as Clinton, they would face administrative and disciplinary action.
The State Department had been conducting a probe of their own into the case, but stopped so as not to interfere with the FBI inquiry. Now that the FBI investigation has concluded, the State Department is reopening their internal investigation into the mishandling of classified material by Clinton and her staff. No deadline has been set for the completion of the inquiry.
