This appears related to two main points, (considering also the sensitive character of the non-elucidated Benghazi deadly attack against US Consul, back on 2011) :

(A) FBI Director denounced that Clinton's Lawyers "missed" (and did not return back to the State Department) "work-related e-mails, ...that we later found", ("f.ex., in the mailboxes of other oficials, or in the slack space of a server). He also revealed that Clinton's "Laywers" "deleted all-emails that they did not return to State, and ...cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude forensic recovery". The amount of such deleted emails is estimated at around 30.000 e-mails (out of "60.000 total e-mails remaining at Clinton's personal system in 2014"), i.e. about 50% !

Nevertheless, he said that he "believe(s)" that there is what he calls "reasonable confidence", (despite the fact that he did "not have complete visibility", "because we are not able to fully reconstruct the electronic record" of those acts, as he admitted),  that "there was no intentional misconduct". But he doesn't explain why.

(B) He also anounced that FBI found that at least 3 among the emails not returned by Clinton to the State were classified at "Secret" or "Confidential level". ("FBI .. discovered several thousand work-related e-mails, that were not ...returned", he revealed).  In addition, from the returned e-mails, "110" contained "Classified information" ("8 ...Top Secret", "36 ... Secret", "8 ... Confidential"), while another "2.000 additional e-mails" had been, in the meantime, "up-classified" and become "Confidential".

But, even if he stresses that FBI's experts actually "Read the Content" of all those examined e-mails, he does not reveal at all the main Issue to which they were related. (F.ex. was it about the stil ill-elucidated Benghazi Islamic Terrorist Attack, or not ?).

=> All these two main points raise obvious Question-marks, considering also the supplemenary fact that, as FBI's Chief concluded : "It is possible that Hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton's personal e-mail account", - given the notoriously extensive "use of her Personal (instead of Work) e-mail domain, both known by a large number of people, and readily apparent", which was much more vulnerable and unprotected.

FBI's Chief acknowledges hat "there is Evidence of potential Violations of the Statutes regarding the handling of Classified information".

But he, nevertheless,  concludes that "our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case", arguying of "factors" such as "especially regarding Intent", "the Context", whether "vast quantities of materials (were) exposed", "intentional misconduct", "efforts to Obstruct Justice", etc, claiming that "we do not see those things here". An assessment which is not obvious.

The "investigation" of FBI "looked at whether there is evidence Classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on (Clinton's) Personal system, in Violation of ...Federal Statute(s) making it a Felony to mishandle classified information, either intentionally, or in a grossly Negligent way, or ...a Misdemeanor to knowingly Remove Classified information from appropriate systems or storage facilities", as he had said earlier.

=> Will Edward Snowden's criticism and/or warning, in this regard, prove, once again, to be both true ?
