No charges will be brought against any individual following the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email system while serving as secretary of state.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that she met with FBI Director James Comey, career prosecutors and agents involved in the investigation Wednesday afternoon.
"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," Lynch said in a statement.
On Tuesday, Comey said that in the FBI's view, "no charges are appropriate in this case."
"Although there is evidence of potential violations regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," he said.
Last week Lynch faced questions about a meeting with former president Bill Clinton. The attorney general said that she ran into him at the Phoenix airport and that their conversation "was a great deal about his grandchildren." Lynch said that their interaction was "primarily social and about our travels."
