Did Hillary Clinton Break The Law?

On July 5, 2016, FBI Director James B. Comey gave a statement concerning the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a personal e-mail system. Director Comey stated that after a thorough investigation, his office was going to recommend to the Department of Justice that no charges should be filed in this case.

Many democrats will celebrate the FBI's recommendation. They will use this to further their belief that this was a witch hunt encouraged by the Republican party. What these democrats will fail to mention is the following statement made by Director Comey.

"There is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information."

The evidence is that Mrs. Clinton most likely did violate the law but there will be no prosecution. If you and I violated those same laws, I wonder if they would let us off the hook?
