The recent investigations from the FBI email scandal that senator Hillary Clinton has been embroiled in have been a strenuous investigation that has been ongoing for over a year now. The investigation seems to have come towards its end with the results almost out.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has come out with a verdict after the special investigative branch of the FBI carried out thorough and credible background checks and proper email server investigations. The United States Department of Justice had ordered a special investigative probe by the FBI just before Secretary Clinton announced her bid for the Presidential Race of 2016.
Secretary Clinton had switched and used her personal email ID and server for official emails that she had exchanged as the Secretary of State of the United States of America. While the act of doing so may not be illegal, it is still highly unethical and caused a huge concern amongst the administration for such a callous act, considering emails could possess highly confidential and sensitive information.
Critics also claimed that Hillary Clinton's involvement in the Benghazi attacks were corresponded entirely over her private email account, which would be an unsecure and public server.
In light of the investigations, the FBI have determined that there was no criminal intent or activity that had been carried out by Senator Clinton, even during her time as Secretary of State. They also disproved that there was any involvement of Senator Clinton in the Benghazi attacks.
The FBI chief had claimed that he would submit his report on the case over to the Department of Justice who would move to vindicate Senator Clinton from the scandal. This would mean that Senator Clinton’s presidential race and bid would be much easier and without obstacles from here on out.
Market reactions to the race
Political experts and financial experts claim that this would be bad news for Clinton’s rival, Donald Trump of the Republican Party. Additionally, the markets began to react positively to Clinton’s clean chit with the FBI and the DOJ.
While there are no certain ways of telling what exactly markets react to and work with, the timing of Clinton’s clean chit with the DOJ and FBI seemed to dovetail perfectly with the positive market reactions. Many financial analysts claim that Donald Trump’s election as President could spell bad news for the markets.
