No charges in Clinton email probe, Trump cries foul

The attorney general had previously pledged to respect FBI and prosecutors’ decisions about whether to bring charges after it emerged that she met briefly with Clinton’s husband, Bill, last week — prompting Republicans to cry foul over possible government interference.
