Speaking to reporters Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey called Hillary Clinton’s decision to use a private email server at the State Department and its subsequent implementation “extremely careless.”

“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence they were extremely careless in their handling of highly classified information.”

Earlier in the press conference, Comey stated that the investigation had discovered 110 emails across 52 email chains that were classified at the time of sending.

Comey also stated that 8 email chains contained top secret information and that more than 200 other emails were “up-classified” later by their respective agencies.

Despite the evidence, Comey and the FBI recommended no charges to be filed against Clinton.
