Loretta Lynch Accepts FBI Recommendation, Closes Hillary Email Investigation

Attorney General Loretta Lynch has officially closed the book on the Department of Justice investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s emails, after accepting the FBI’s recommendation.

Here is the statement the DOJ just released:

Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State. I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.

Republicans still want answers, and FBI Director James Comey is testifying to the House Oversight Committee tomorrow. The House GOP wants Lynch to do the same.
