Washington | US Attorney General Loretta Lynch has said she has accepted the FBI’s recommendation that no charges be brought over Hillary Clinton’s email practices while secretary of state.

Lynch made the widely-expected announcement following a meeting with FBI Director James Comey as well as prosecutors and agents who led the probe.

I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation, she said in a statement yesterday.
