But FBI Director James Comey did say there's evidence Hillary Clinton and her staff were "extremely careless" in their handling of emails.By Lauren Stephenson, Jay Strubberg | July 5, 2016
FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that he'll recommend the Department of Justice not bring criminal charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her use of private email servers.
The purpose of the investigation was to determine whether Clinton violated any laws by handling classified information on her private email server.
"Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," Comey said.
