Green Party Nominee Jill Stein Calls for Charges Against Hillary Clinton over Email Scandal

HeadlineJul 07, 2016

FBI Director James Comey is slated to testify before Congress today over the agency’s decision to recommend no charges be brought against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of multiple private email servers while she was secretary of state. On Tuesday, Comey said Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information but that her actions did not merit charges. The decision sparked outrage from Republican lawmakers, from Donald Trump and from Green Party nominee Jill Stein, who called for charges against Clinton, saying, “Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect critical security information is not the only thing in her tenure as Secretary that deserves the term reckless, including her decision to pursue catastrophic regime change in Libya, and to support the overthrow of democratically elected governments in Ukraine and Honduras.”
