FBI’s Comey: Clinton ‘extremely careless’ about emails, but bureau will not advise criminal charges

by FoxNews.com  |  published on July 5, 2016

FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that despite evidence Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” in her handling of classified emails on a private server, the bureau will not recommend to the Department of Justice that criminal charges be brought against the former secretary of state.

“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” Comey said.

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, did not immediately respond. Her Republican rival, Donald Trump, did — blasting the FBI’s recommendation.

“FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem” he tweeted.

  • If you listen to Comey’s words very carefully, you can’t help noticing something is up. He has always been a straight up man…what changed so fast? Just remember the circumstances surrounding this situation before he spoke. Bill Clinton on the plane with Lynch, Hillary Clinton not being prosecuted, then Obama and Clinton going to NC on Air Force One. There is an in-between something here that was going on…what? Did Lynch in some way, for her own reasons toss the ball to Comey and now [ listen to his words carefully ] Comey has thrown the ball back to Lynch? Go back and listen to his words…carefully and see what you think.

    I wonder what they promised him…. good or bad. I hope his family is proud of him. I wouldn’t be.

    The FBI cannot clear anyone of any charges. They are obligated to turn their findings over to the DOJ, where a prosecutor makes the decision whether to proceed with the case. Of course, in this case it is a foregone conclusion that there were not going to be any charges brought to a federal grand jury. After all, who is Comey’s boss?

    I think we’ve just seen a setup play out. Loretta Lynch’s chance encounter with Bill Clinton was discovered and reported by a TV reporter. People protested the meeting and AG Lynch came forward and said she would accept whatever the investigators recommended. We now know what the FBI recommends. Maybe we should ask when the attorney general learned that an indictment was not likely. We should also ask how the reporter learned of this meeting. I find it hard to believe a TV station would keep a reporter at an airport around the clock so they would be on the scene if something newsworthy happened to occur.

    We are likely to learn the reporter was tipped off by someone in the Obama administration or the Clinton campaign. We are likely to find the coincidental meeting was not a coincidence at all. We are likely to learn the Lynch-Clinton meeting was a clever plan to get the Obama administration off the hook when the FBI issued their findings. We were played.

    Donald Trump is right. This system is corrupt. The legal system may not hold Ms. Clinton accountable for her actions but the political system should.

    So this is what Comey just told the American people, they are NO longer in charge of their government, it’s the other way around. He told the American people that he himself finds Clinton guilty but would NOT prosecute her, he wasn’t supposed to prosecute her anyway, who is HE to let HER off the HOOK??? He told the American people that the Clinton Mafia machine is in charge of this country!!!!!! So American people this is YOUR Government of the people, by the people, for the people…The Clinton Mafia just MOONED you all……

    I take no pride in saying it but I predicted and posted this outcome for the last several weeks. NOW the congress says they will pick it up. Nothing going to happen there. If the FBI had done the job, forced the AG to make the decision, Mr. Obama would have simply issued a full presidential pardon.The decision, the Judge & Jury are now the voters. Since we have seen the outcome of the last two election it doesn’t look good. It is horrifying to think that Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the white house with ALL the nations top secrets at her fingertips. She and Bill Clinton would sell this nation an acre at a time.

    Comey…just opened The Avenue of No Responsibility!
    Now anyone handling Top secret, classified or confidential paper or emails, can say I was extremely careless, but no harm done!
    So Rules and Laws can be avoided by Government Elites with No Repercussions…
    You and I would be Prosecuted…Period!

    All that this means is that we don’t have any “reasonable prosecutors”.

    ☭Traitors have an agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

    Did anyone NOT see this coming? The very minute the AG abdicated her responsibilities in this case, you had to KNOW she KNEW this was going to happen. While Gen. Petraeus gets hammered for talking to ONE person about something that may or may not have been secret, this criminal get away with passing around over 100 e-mails that were classified. Justice???
    Typical of the Clinton crime family. Bill spent his last 4 years lying to Congress before, during and after his impeachment, yet only tells the truth after he leaves office and gets a slap on the wrist by a compliant judge. Hillary decided she needed to carry on the legacy BEFORE she gets elected, and gets compliant “law enforcement” to go along. We need Trump now more that ever.

  • barbarakelly

    FBI– You have dishonored the name that you are suppose to represent. J.E. Hoover would be slapping you in the face and fire you . YOU have spit on integrity and honor. that came with the name during WW2. YOu are a disgrace and I’m firing you. You have gotten weak and spineless

    what national security , oboma has destroyed that , dhs ,=useless, tsa =useless, , ice =useless , doj =useless , white house =useless ,congress= useless, get the point

  • Dan

    This is not a surprise. Corruption from the top down and they’re so arrogant they do it in broad daylight. i.e. Phoenix airport….

  • Timothy Thompson

    There is only one answer to this situation; Protected Democrat. Hillary got a political pass. Anyone who votes for this known lier, incompetent head of State Department will kill what’s left of American greatness.


      at this point America has died…. and needs to be resurrected.

  • Icemancold

    The question is how much did HILLARY have BILL offer COMEY and LYNCH to allow HILLARY to walk ?

    • Bob

      He offered to let her stay on after the election as AG.

      • Retired

        There are a lot more deals involved, and one is to stay above ground.

        • IMJSBNME

          Having a UN official (who was ready to testify against HilLiary) suddenly get killed a few days before Comey’s decision probably played into the situation. Toe the line or die is a very strong incentive to toe the party line. Comey stated that HilLiary is guilty but does not push for prosecution…..? Elliot Ness…where are you.,,?

  • CharlieSeattle

    Clinton broke the law and lied about it under oath! ………W T F ??

    AG Lynch and DOJ/FBI/DHS proved once again they are leftist political tools. Always have been, always will be.

    Justice has been Lynched!!


      It’s not over til the fat lady sings…. and HilLiary hasn’t sung yet…. Justice will prevail eventually, one way or another.

      • Discusted

        Could we get so luck that she falls over with a massive heart attack ?

        • IMJSBNME

          I hope and pray she does… we have already had 7+ years with a traitor posing as POtuS..we don’t need (nor can this country) take 4 more years of the same
