Legal Analysis on the End of the Clinton Email Investigation
KUSA - The yearlong investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State is over. There will be no charges, after the FBI reviewed thousands upon thousands of her emails.
"We are expressing to Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,” said FBI Director James Comey.
Here’s what the FBI says it found:
- 110 emails on Clinton’s personal server contained classified information
- 8 email chains had top secret information
- 36 email chains had secret information
But the FBI says it found no evidence of intent to violate the law.
In some ways, the nature of the case involving specific emails may have made it easier for the FBI to draw conclusions, according to former FBI agent Kevin Knierim of the Denver-based forensic investigative group Cyopsis.
