Well... no. Because it shouldn't have been the State Department's responsibility for her private server. Now, that said, her private server shouldn't have had any government emails on it, the basis of the investigation already going on.

LCDR (Join to see), sir, it would appear to me that the FBI and Justice Dept. are following political considerations rather than national security interests.

I am quite sure the FBI is following the truth and the Constitution considering who is in charge of the FBI...

Sadly, the Justice Department is not following either and it's leader will likely get a cell next to the Clinton's when this all comes out...

I believe the current head of the FBI is not going to play ball with the politicians..and the Justice Department is running scared. It is not in his nature.

This will not be the first time he has stood down a President over his convictions...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Comey

"In early January 2006, The New York Times, as part of its investigation into domestic surveillance by the National Security Agency, reported that Comey, who was Acting Attorney General during the March 2004 hospitalization of John Ashcroft, refused to certify the legality of central aspects of the NSA program. The certification was required under White House procedures in order for the program to continue.

After Comey's refusal, the newspaper reported, Andrew H. Card Jr., White House Chief of Staff, and Alberto R. Gonzales, then White House counsel and future Attorney General, made a visit to the George Washington University Hospital to attempt to win approval directly from Ashcroft for the program. According to the 2007 memoir of Jack Goldsmith, who had been head of the Office of Legal Counsel at the time, Comey went to the hospital to give Ashcroft support in withstanding pressure from the White House.

Comey confirmed these events took place (but declined to confirm the specific program) in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on 16 May 2007.

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III, like Comey, also supported Ashcroft's decision; both men were prepared to resign if the White House ignored the Department of Justice's legal conclusions on the wiretapping issue. FBI director Mueller's notes on the March 10, 2004, incident, which were released to a House Judiciary committee, confirms that he "Saw [the] AG, John Ashcroft in the room. AG is feeble, barely articulate, clearly stressed."

Comey withdrew his threat to resign after meeting directly with President Bush, who gave his support to making changes in the surveillance program."

Clinton is going to jail as long as this guy is running the FBI...

SSgt Alex Robinson - Absolutely. As soon as they suspected there was a security issue, they should have acted to ensure security was established to preclude further chance of unauthorized disclosure. Those who failed to do so were derelict in their duties and should be punished.
