No charges in Clinton email probe: US Attorney-General

Gorkha Post

Published

WASHINGTON — US Attorney-General Loretta Lynch says she has accepted the FBI’s recommendation that no charges be brought over Hillary Clinton’s email practices while secretary of state.

“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 in a statement.

On Tuesday, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said Mrs Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, had been “extremely careless” in her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, but he recommended no criminal charges be filed in the case.

While Mr Comey’s announcement lifted a cloud of uncertainty that had loomed over Mrs Clinton’s White House campaign, his strong criticism of her judgment ignited a new attack on her over the email issue by Donald Trump, her likely Republican opponent in the November 8 election.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, Mr Trump accused Mrs Clinton of bribing Ms Lynch to decide not to press charges.

“She said she’s going to reappoint the Attorney-General and the Attorney-General is waiting to make a determination as to whether or not she’s guilty. And boy was that a fast determination, wow,” Mr Trump said.
