FBI Director James Comey says Hillary Clinton's use of personal email for State Department business was "extremely careless," but he says the agency will not recommend criminal charges.

In a statement this morning, Comey says 110 Clinton emails and 52 email chains contained classified information, with eight of them containing top secret information. Here & Now's Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson speak with NPR's Domenico Montanaro and Carrie Johnson about the FBI's investigation into the emails, and why no action is being taken.
