Tuesday morning, FBI Director James Comey spoke to the press in regards to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. He stated that contrary to previous thought, Clinton used not one separate server, but multiple devices to send, receive, and view emails. In the 30,000 emails that the FBI investigated, 8 contained top secret information, 100+ contained classified information, and 30 contained secret information when sent. Additionally, around 2,000 emails were “up-classified” to make them confidential after they had been sent. The FBI also discovered several thousand emails that had been excluded from the original 30,000 handed over for investigation. The FBI reports, “It is also likely that there are other work-related e-mails that they [Hillary’s lawyers] did not produce to State and that we did not find elsewhere, and that are now gone because they deleted all emails they did not return to State, and the lawyers cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery.”

Comey went on to explain that Hillary’s behavior was “extremely careless,” and “grossly negligent,” and that no reasonable person would have made the same decisions. Comey explained that even a commercial accounts such as Gmail has more security than Clinton’s private servers, with a full time security staff. The FBI Director continued, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” This investigation was ongoing for a year and has been closed with no charges being recommended by the FBI.
