FBI Report Brings Out Supporters On Both Sides
WASHINGTON – As you might expect the FBI report that said presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton did not reach the level of prosecution. So both the Democrats and Republicans took about five minutes after the press conference given by FBI Director James Comey. The Republican’s know that Clinton’s trustworthiness is there winning point in the 2016 Presidential race. Meanwhile, the Democrats will push the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on his temperament.
FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem

The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2016
“We found no evidence that any of the additional work-related emails were intentionally deleted” to obscure them, Comey says.

Gross Negligence = blatant indifference to one’s legal duty. Comey defined @HillaryClinton ‘s actions as gross negligence in that presser.

House Speaker Paul Ryan blasted FBI Director James Comey’s decision Tuesday not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server at the State Department, saying the “announcement defies explanation.”
“While I respect the law enforcement professionals at the FBI, this announcement defies explanation. No one should be above the law. But based upon the director’s own statement, it appears damage is being done to the rule of law,” Ryan said in a statement. “Declining to prosecute Secretary Clinton for recklessly mishandling and transmitting national security information will set a terrible precedent.”
Meanwhile, the Hillary Clinton’s campaign issued an initial response to the FBI’s recommendation on Tuesday not to press criminal charges against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee over her use of a private email server while at the State Department.
“We are pleased that the career officials handling this case have determined that no further action by the Department is appropriate,” spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement.
“As the secretary has long said, it was a mistake to use her personal email and she would not do it again. We are glad this matter is now resolved,” said Fallon.
