Attorney General Loretta Lynch expects to “accept the determinations and findings of the Department's career prosecutors and investigators, as well as the FBI Director” when she receives the results of the criminal probe into the handling of State Department emails.

Justice Department officials announced her decision this morning, as Lynch prepared to speak at a panel in Colorado. The announcement comes after nearly a day of controversy surrounding Lynch's meeting with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac in Phoenix.
