Earlier today, FBI Director James Comey effectively brought the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server to an end, announcing that the FBI would not recommend bringing charges against the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Last week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced she would accept the FBI’s recommendation and not override it.
Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett issued this response in a press release:
Hillary Clinton is the most crooked and corrupt politician in American politics. She broke the law, tried to cover it up, lied to the American people, and now deserves to be punished for her reckless and criminal behavior.
Unfortunately, our elected officials behave more like Chicago mobsters than public servants. We need an outsider like Donald Trump who can restore accountability, integrity, and confidence in the federal government. We need real leadership and real consequences for those who endanger our country for the sake of political expediency.
So far, no comments from the Georgia Democratic Party on their website.
