FBI Not Likely To Face Criminal Charges Says FBI Director James Comey
“There is evidence that they were extremely careless” with highly sensitive information, Comey said of Clinton and her aides. But he said he would recommend to the DOJ that “no charges are appropriate in this case.”
Comey said the FBI reviewed the approximately 30,000 emails Clinton turned over to the State Department in 2014. If an email appeared to contain classified information, the bureau consulted any government agency that “was a likely ‘owner’” of the information to determine if it was classified at the time it was transmitted or if it would be considered classified today.
The FBI found that 110 emails in 52 email chains contained classified information. “Eight of those chains contained information that was top secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained secret information at the time; and eight contained confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification,” Comey said.
Of course, you-know-who is foot-stompin’ mad about this…
Hillary is scheduled to make her first public appearance with President Obama today in North Carolina. We didn’t expect to hear that she would be charged before such a big public display.
