As WikiLeaks released another 1,000 emails about the Iraq War from Hillary Clinton’s private server the FBI announced that they would not be recommending any charges against the former Secretary of State.
In honor of Independence Day 2016 WikiLeaks published more than 1,000 emails about the Iraq War from Hillary Clinton‘s private server during her time as secretary of State. The move by the whistleblowing site came one day before the Federal Bureau of Investigations announced that they are not seeking charges against Clinton for improperly storing classified emails.
On Monday WikiLeaks tweeted a link to 1,258 emails that Clinton sent and received. The emails were part of a larger cache of documents released by the State Department in February. WikiLeaks identified all the emails related to the Iraq War and compiled them into a searchable database.
“The development comes after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said last month the website had gathered “enough evidence” for the FBI to indict Clinton,” The Hill noted.
“We could proceed to an indictment, but if Loretta Lynch is the head of the [Department of Justice] in the United States, she’s not going to indict Hillary Clinton,” Assange told London-based ITV. “That’s not possible that could happen.”
It seems as if Assange’s prediction will ultimately be proven correct after FBI Director James B. Comey announced the Bureau is not recommending that Attorney General Loretta Lynch seek charges against Mrs. Clinton. Lynch previously said she would defer to the FBI decision on whether or not to indict Clinton.
