|Comey stated that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”|
FBI Director James Comey delivered a public statement Tuesday morning concerning the legality of Hillary Clinton’s email server.
In the address Comey characterized Clinton as “extremely careless” in the handling of her email server protocols but “found no evidence that any of the additional work-related emails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them.” He added that Clinton never intended to circumvent any laws.
Comey did not hold back in his criticisms of the former Secretary of State saying...
“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past."
“In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.”

Much like the Benghazi committee's non-report on Clinton's non-scandal that dropped last week Comey's statement will close the chapter on email-gate. But rest assured that this development will not silence those in the right wing media who have made much of their living going after the Clintons throughout the decades.
