Several months of investigation, tens of thousands of emails, and one mean-spirited nickname later, the FBI finally released the results of their investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.
Although the FBI found Clinton was "extremely careless," and the State Department found she did not comply with their records policies, FBI director James Comey said she should not be charged.
"Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information," Comey said in a statement on Tuesday, "our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."
The FBI investigation started in 2015, after a House committee found Clinton used her own email server, instead of the government-provided server, when sending emails as secretary of state.
The FBI investigation focused on whether "classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system," which could constitute felony mishandling of classified information, according to Comey's statement.
Clinton's campaign described her as a voluntary participant in the investigation. She turned over 30,000 of her emails for review, but omitted about 30,000 others that she deemed "personal in nature." Though some were wary of these omitted emails, the FBI said they have "reasonable confidence there was no intentional misconduct" in the emails Clinton chose to not to share.
The FBI reviewed all 30,000 shared emails — as well as several thousand more that they uncovered themselves — deposed Clinton's top advisers, and interviewed Clinton herself multiple times.
After her final interview on Saturday, Clinton told MSNBC, "Let me just repeat what I have repeated for many months now: I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified."
The final decision ultimately rests with the Justice Department, and attorney general Loretta Lynch — which poses its own set of issues.
Lynch sparked outcry last week, when she was seen speaking with Clinton's husband on an airport tarmac. The two maintain that the nature of the conversation was social, but critics called the meeting "above reproach."
Lynch said in a recent interview that she planned to accept the findings of the FBI and Justice Department experts in the Clinton case.
"The recommendations will be reviewed by career supervisors in the Department of Justice and in the FBI, and by the FBI director, and then as is the common process, they present it to me and I fully expect to accept their recommendations," she said July 1.
Then, more than likely, business, or campaigning, will continue as usual for Clinton. And no further investigation will surround "damn emails."
