No charges in Clinton email probe: US Attorney-General

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.

Transportation has also been halted.

Bista, a resident of Khanna Chauraha area in Bhimdutta Municipality-19, was apprehended near the scene of crime on Sunday, according to police.

Police making public the wrong suspect has infuriated the locals and fueled the protest.

The agitators including various civil society organisations and human rights defenders have been picketing the District Administration Office and staging rally on the street mounting pressure on the police to reveal the facts behind the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, it had been learnt that police have fired rounds of teargas shells to contain the agitated mob.
