Despite finding that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “extremely careless” in her use of a private server, that top secret information was stored, sent, and received on it, and that hostile foreign actors probably gained access to her emails, FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday morning that the agency does not believe criminal charges are appropriate in this case.
Reacting to the news, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump reminded his Twitter followers that the “system is rigged,” pointing out that Gen. David Petraeus was punished for far less.
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
FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2016
