In July, an FBI investigation concluded no “reasonable prosecutor” would bring a criminal case against Mrs Clinton, but that she and her aides were “extremely careless” in their handling of classified information.
Then the FBI surprised everyone, 11 days before the election, by announcing it was examining newly discovered emails sent or received by Hillary Clinton.
Two days before voting booths opened across the nation, FBIFBI Director James Comey announced he was standing by his original assessment – that Mrs Clinton should not face criminal charges.
So how did we get here?
What’s the deal with Hillary Clinton’s emails?
Shortly before she was sworn in as secretary of state in 2009, Hillary Clinton set up an email server at her home in Chappaqua, New York. She then relied on this server, home to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, for all her electronic correspondence – both work-related and personal – during her four years in office.
She also reportedly set up email addresses on the server for her long-time aide, Huma Abedin, and State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
She did not use, or even activate, a state.gov email account, which would have been hosted on servers owned and managed by the US government.
Mrs Clinton’s email system became a national story the first week of March 2015, when the New York Times ran a front-page article on the subject. The article said that the system “may have violated federal requirements” and was “alarming” to current and former government archive officials.
