The U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, announced that the probe against Hillary Clinton regarding her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State has been closed.
The announcement came following an investigation from the FBI, which recommended that no further action be taken against Clinton.
Republicans are unhappy with the decision to close the probe into Clinton’s email server following numerous lies from the presumptive Democratic nominee. Clinton is on record stating that she did not send or receive classified information from her server, but the FBI found 110 emails deemed classified.
The Republican party made it clear that they will not back down from pursuing further action against Clinton.
Lynch’s statement on Wednesday said, “I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed.” The Attorney General further stated that no action will be brought against anyone in the scope of the investigation. Numerous aides were investigated and questioned during the probe.
Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, fired back at Clinton and the investigation, questioning why she was not charged for her illegal usage of her email server. Trump also called into question a meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton weeks ago. Republicans are calling for all investigation material from the FBI be released as well as the more than three-hour transcript from Clinton’s interview with the FBI last Saturday.
