The Federal Bureau of Investigation is not recommending charges against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of multiple private email servers while she was secretary of state. This comes despite FBI Director James Comey saying Clinton was “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.
James Comey: “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”
The FBI analyzed 30,000 emails, finding at least 110 that contained classified information at the time they were sent or received. Comey said a handful of these were marked as classified at the time—a finding that contradicts Clinton’s claims. The FBI found eight email chains containing top secret information. Comey also said it was “possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account.”
