FBI Director, James Comey has decided to stick with his original plan in July and will not prosecute Hillary Clinton for the emails on her private email server that could have put US secrets at risk while she was the Secretary of State. Democrats welcome the news that Clinton will not face any jail time and that she is protected.
Although Donald Trump has been using the private email server against Clinton, and although she will not face any jail time, this did not stop him from spouting off against her for it. Trump says, “You have to understand. It’s a rigged system and she’s protected.”
However, there was relief among the Democrats that Clinton is protected. They all rallied in Philadelphia, the night before Election Day. The rally starred Obama and his wife, and of course, Bruce Springsteen.
Late last month, Comey sent shockwaves throughout the Democratic community when he said there would be another FBI investigation against Clinton for her use of private email servers that might have leaked some secrets of the United States. However, now that she has been cleared, and if she wins the presidential election, she will be the first female president ever in the history of the United States.
Before Trump, the Republican nominee for US President heard about Clinton being free from any criminal charges against her, he had this to say about the situation:
“Hillary Clinton will be under investigation for a long, long time, for her many crimes against our nation, our people, our democracy.”
It was not immediately clear whether Trump had been told that Clinton was free from any criminal charges until he said that the system was rigged and, of course, she is protected.
