U.S. attorney general closes Clinton email probe, says no charges

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Clinton delivers a campaign speech outside the shuttered Trump Plaza in Atlantic CityBy Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email while secretary of state is closed, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Wednesday, removing a legal cloud that threatened the presumptive Democratic nominee’s presidential bid. Lynch said she accepted the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s recommendations that no charges be brought in the probe, as Republicans made clear they would not let Clinton’s email headaches fade away easily. With the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential and congressional elections beginning to heat up, Republicans called on the administration to make public key documents in the Clinton email case.
