Washington— Following the FBI’s transmission of a letter and documents related to the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails, Senator Dianne Feinstein released the following statement:

“The FBI’s letter to the Judiciary Committee makes clear this is much ado about nothing and I would urge everyone to read it. The FBI makes a few key points absolutely clear.

“One: Secretary Clinton did not intend to send or receive classified information.

“Two: The cases where charges were filed involved clear intent to mishandle classified information, evidence of intentional misconduct due to a significant quantity of classified information being exposed, disloyalty to the United States or obstruction of justice. Secretary Clinton’s case did not meet any of those criteria. Therefore, the FBI rightly decided against recommending criminal charges.

“Three: Secretary Clinton did not initiate any emails that contained classified information or were marked as classified.”
