Politics – Loretta Lynch declines to charge Clinton


Attorney General Loretta Lynch declined to charge Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. “Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as secretary of state,” Lynch said in a statement. “I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation,” she said. Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted in response, “With the AG accepting Director Comey’s recommendation, this case is resolved, no matter Republicans’ attempts to continue playing politics.” Donald Trump responded to the decision at a campaign rally, saying, “Whats going on is very big … for Bill Clinton to go to the plane, then to have what happened … Everybody thought based on what was being said she was guilty. She was guilty. And it turned out that, ‘We’re not going to press charges.’ It’s really amazing.”
