WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Loretta Lynch says the Hillary Clinton email investigation is being closed without any criminal charges.

Lynch announced the Justice Department decision Wednesday, one day after FBI Director James Comey recommended against any prosecution.

The decision was largely a formality given Comey’s public statement on the case.

Lynch said last week that she intended to accept whatever recommendations and findings were presented by the FBI and by her career prosecutors.

    Early on, Loretta was bribed. Hillary said “I know you like your job as Attorney General. If you want to keep it, here’s what you won’t do….” I’m betting that’s what happened.

    So the democrats have thrown the law out the window again. Another attack on the constitution.
    If five years the country will fold if Hillary becomes president. And she will. The fix is in. If Trump got 99% of the vote Hillary would still win by a landslide.
    Hope and change.
