The Internet was furious after the director of the FBI recommended no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton after she used a private server to communicate about classified information.
“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” James Comey said during a press conference Tuesday.
“To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.”
People were quick to express their frustration on Twitter.

As a Democratic member of the voting public, I fully reccommend @HillaryClinton step aside in the race for President. Careless actions.

Hillary Clinton just needs to back out of the presidential race. Why have someone who is “excessively careless” as our president?
