One of the most dominating political headlines over the course of the 2016 primary election has involved Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email sever during her time as Secretary of State. After meeting with the FBI to discuss the issue for over three hours on Saturday, sources report that no charges will be filed against her.

Clinton in the clear

While serving as Secretary of State under President Obama, from 2009 to 2013, Clinton used a private server to handle many of her communications. Republicans have used the story as a political weapon against the likely Democratic nominee in an attempt to question her trustworthiness heading into the 2016 general election.

Just hours after the Clinton-FBI meeting had wrapped up, word was released that Clinton would not have to worry about charges being filed against her for the possible illegal use of the server, which sent Republican nominee Donald Trump into a frenzy.

"It was just announced-by sources-that no charges will be brought against Crooked Hillary Clinton," Trump tweeted shortly after 5 p.m. EST, stating, "Like I said, the system is totally rigged!" Just a half hour prior, Trump released another tweet, saying it was "impossible" that the FBI not recommend charges against her.

As reported by The Hill earlier in the day, Clinton gave a "voluntary interview," as it was described by her campaign in a statement released to the media. The meeting took place in Washington, D.C.

at the headquarters of the FBI. CNN reported that an official announcement will be made within the next two weeks, to avoid an issue with the upcoming Democratic National Convention. If Clinton were to be indicted, the Democrats could take that into consideration if they decided they wanted to nominate another candidate.

General election showdown

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Trump is angry about the news, and he was the first to break the story, citing "sources." An indictment of Clinton would have caused the Democratic Party to crumble into disarray and with Trump struggling in recent polls, he could appear to use any help he could get. Even with his recent campaign stumbles, the billionaire real estate mogul is only trailing Clinton by less than five points in the latest Real Clear Politics rolling average, 44.8 percent to 40.3 percent.
