FBI's Comey: No Charges Appropriate in Clinton Case

Updated on

The FBI recommended that no criminal charges be filed against Hillary Clinton over her use of private e-mail while secretary of state, even as the bureau found that her careless handling of official communications could have exposed classified information to hackers.

In announcing the recommendations Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey said the U.S. Justice Department would make a final determination on any possible charges against Clinton or her associates. Still, his findings mark a new turn in an inquiry that has cast a long shadow on Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
