No Charges For Clinton, But That Hasn't Stopped The Commentary

It took FBI Director James Comey 15 minutes to lay out the results of his agency's probe into Hillary Clinton's private email systems. But the big takeaways from the speech sound different depending on what side of Team Clinton you fall on.
"Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," Comey said during his remarks.
For Clinton supporters, this was the most important line of Comey's speech. The FBI director emphasized his department's decision would've been the same no matter who was involved in the case, and he relied on past cases to justify the decision not to push for charges against Clinton.
