She’s essentially off the hook but the email scandal will continue to follow Hilary Clinton throughout the campaign.
Matthew Wilson at SMU says he suspects Republicans will use the FBI Director’s comments to Clinton in political adds as they attempt to make her look out of touch and not trustworthy.
Wilson says most people already feel that way so it’s not going to change public perception of her.
Wilson doesn’t think the outcome will have much of an impact on Clinton’s campaign for President.
Meanwhile, Congressman Lamar Smith says he has a great deal of respect for the FBI Director but he feels if you put national security at risk, you need to be prosecuted.
“I’m a little bit surprised, maybe even disappointed that he didn’t recommend that.”
Smith says what happens next is up to the American people.
“I do think the American people will have to think long and hard about whether they want Hilary Clinton to be President of the United States given her endangering national security.”
