FBI to GOP: For the last time, Hillary’s ‘extreme carelessness’ does not mean ‘gross negligence’

This Tuesday, the FBI sent a letter to GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Rep. Elijah Cummings, the nation’s top Democrat on that Committee, telling them that Hillary Clinton did not compose and send any emails that contained classified information.

In the letter, FBI Assistant Director James V. Herring wrote, “The FBI conducted this investigation, as it does all investigations, in a competent, honest and independent way.”

Along with the letter, the FBI included details from its year-long investigation of Clinton’s email server.

“The fact that Secretary Clinton received emails containing ‘(C)’ [classified] portion markings is not clear evidence of knowledge or intent,” Herring wrote.

“As the director stated, the FBI did find evidence that Secretary Clinton and her colleagues were extremely careless in their handling of certain, very sensitive, highly classified information,” the letter said. “The term ‘extremely careless’ was intended to be a common sense way of describing the actions of Secretary Clinton and her colleagues. The director did not equate ‘extreme carelessness’ with the legal standard of ‘gross negligence’ that is required by the statute. In this case, the FBI assessed that the facts did not support a recommendation to prosecute her or others within the scope of the investigation for gross negligence.”

“Ultimately, the FBI did not recommend prosecution based on an assessment of the facts and review of how these statutes have been charged in the past,” the letter concluded.
