Clinton 'extremely careless' with emails, but FBI recommends no charges

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Clinton addresses campaign rally in Charlotte, North CarolinaBy John Whitesides and Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI recommended on Tuesday that no criminal charges be filed over Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers while she was secretary of state, but rebuked the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate for “extremely careless” handling of classified information. While FBI Director James Comey’s announcement lifted a cloud of uncertainty that had loomed over Clinton’s White House campaign, his strong criticism of her judgment ignited a new attack on her over the email issue by Donald Trump, her likely Republican opponent in the Nov. 8 election. Comey’s comments are likely to reinforce what polls show are widespread public concerns about Clinton’s honesty and trustworthiness.
