AG Lynch to testify on Clinton email investigation

Republican voters are the most likely to say the outcome discourages them to support Clinton - 49 percent - though the vast majority of this group was already strongly opposed to her candidacy before the FBI's announcement.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a narrow lead over likely general election opponent Donald Trump in Nevada, according to a new Monmouth University poll. Over 3 in 10 Democrats disapprove of Director Comey's recommendation against charges for Clinton (31 percent), and the same percentage says the issue makes them worry about Clinton's presidential responsibility.

The decision infuriated congressional Republicans, who have used the case for months to attack Mrs. Clinton.

While it is unclear what lasting impacts the investigation could have on her bid for presidency, the email investigation's findings do not appear to have moved Clinton's favorability ratings significantly.

On Thursday, Comey testified that Clinton's claims about her email, some made under oath, were "not true". In their criminal referral, the lawmakers' letter asks Attorney Channing D. Phillips to investigate. This whole investigation into her email server by Obama's Department of Justice has been rigged in Clinton's favor.

When given the choice, 41% of all voters think Clinton is better qualified to be president, but just as many (40%) say that of Trump.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top-ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, accused Republicans of trying to pile on Clinton ahead of their party's convention. Despite Clinton claiming there "was no classified material", the Federal Bureau of Investigation found Clinton sent or received more than 100 emails containing material that was classified at the time these messages were transmitted.

"They did not believe that (material in the emails) was classified, and I did not have a basis for second-guessing their conclusion", she told CNN. She also has said she only used one mobile device for emails and turned over all her work-related emails to the State Department.

Mrs Clinton said last week that she exchanged emails with about 300 people, mostly at the State Department, who were experienced with handling classified information.

The poll indicates that the majority of the U.S.in fact agrees with the country's laws which is at odds with the decision by the government of President Obama, who has already endorsed Clinton for president.

Before the prosecution decision, Lynch had come under fire for meeting with Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, when their planes were at the same airport.
