The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while Secretary of State found Clinton was incompetent in leadership and good management of the most sensitive of national security information.

Moreover, the FBI found that Hillary Clinton has repeatedly mislead the American people about the details of her personal email server. The evidence shows that she did sent and receive classified information. The evidence shows that under her leadership and management the State Department culture was “extremely careless” in handling national security information.

Hillary Clinton set up a personal email server in violation of State Department policy and government practice designed to protect national security information.

The investigation found classified information was transmitted, received and discussed by Hillary Clinton, revealing: “there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Hillary Clinton said she used one personal and one private mobile device. The evidence shows she used several devices and several servers.

Hillary Clinton said she turned over all the work related emails. The FBI discovered several thousand work-related emails that had previously not been disclosed.

Hillary Clinton says her server(s) were not hacked. The investigation revealed that hostile actors did gain access to private commercial email accounts of people with whom Clinton was in regular contact, and that she used her personal email for work-related discussions extensively while outside the U.S., including within the territories of “sophisticated adversaries.”

Hillary Clinton lied to the American people according to the Director of the FBI. These lies are all recorded and available to everyone. Hillary Clinton told at least three of these lies to Congress during testimony under oath, in a word: perjury.
