FBI Director James Comey announced today that he will not recommend an indictment for Hillary Clinton to the Department of Justice (DOJ) involving her email scandal.

While admitting that Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling classified information through her unsecure, private email server, Comey said the FBI could not find intent by Clinton, according to ABC News.

FBI Director James Comey said today that the agency is not recommending any charges be pressed against Hillary Clinton as a result of the investigation into her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” Comey said.

“In looking back at our investigations into the mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.”

He said that the FBI spent “a tremendous amount of work over the last year” and now the case is headed to the Department of Justice who have the ultimate say when it comes to any “prosecutive decision.”

Of course, social media has blown up with reaction to the announcement:
