FBI completes Clinton email probe, recommends no criminal charges

FBI Director James B. Comey said Tuesday that his agency will not recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server as secretary of state, but called Clinton and her staff “extremely careless” in handling sensitive data.

Comey said the FBI investigations into thousands of emails by Clinton determined that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” The findings now go to the Justice Department.

The announcement — which came only about 72 hours after FBI agents interviewed Clinton — in some ways lifts the cloud that has been hanging over Clinton’s presidential campaign for months.

But it will almost certainly spark criticism that the outcome of the high-profile probe was a foregone conclusion, influenced heavily by political considerations.

Comey said Justice Department prosecutors also must make a final determination, though he was unequivocal in stating his view.

Comey: ‘No reasonable prosecutor’ would charge Clinton over emails

“We are expressing our view to Justice that no charges are appropriate in this case,” he said.

The timing will provide fodder for Clinton’s opponents.

Early last week, former president Bill Clinton had an impromptu meeting with U.S. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch aboard Lynch’s plane at an airport in Phoenix.

Lynch asserted they did not discuss any pending investigations, but the conversation sparked an uproar — with some Republicans and Clinton rivals calling for a third party to be appointed to handle the case.

On Friday, Lynch announced that she would accept recommendations from career prosecutors and FBI agents leading the probe — a decision that she said had been made before her meeting with Bill Clinton, but one that was surely meant to quiet criticism about the independence of the probe.

The investigation had been focused on whether classified information was mishandled because Clinton used a private email account when she was secretary of state. The former secretary of state had asserted she “never received nor sent any material that was marked classified,” although she said that some might have been retroactively branded classified during the process to prepare it for public release
