Even Without Prosecution, FBI Report On Clinton Emails Provides GOP Ammunition

Bernie Sanders may be keeping silent on Hillary Clinton's email scandal, but his supporters certainly aren't.

FBI Director James Comey announced on Tuesday that the agency would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton for her use of a private email server as Secretary of State.

Comey's announcement immediately provoked the fury of Sanders supporters on Twitter:

CNN compiled tweets from some of Sanders' most vocal supporters, including some famous figures:

A representative for the Sanders campaign reportedly said Sanders will not suspend his campaign in the wake of Comey's announcement.

As of Tuesday evening, the Vermont senator did not personally address the FBI's announcement.

Reaction to FBI director's statement on Hillary Clinton's emails
The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.
FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem
Statement of @FBI 's Comey, recommending no charges but rebuking @HillaryClinton for carelessness, is about best result she could get.
The fix is in. No accountability. Pathetic.
Absolutely outrageous presser by Comey. DOJ/FBI is supposed to speak in court. If it won't make statements in court, it shouldn't make them.
No recommendation of criminal charges! It is over! Let Hillary and the country move on! Repeat: it is over. No criminal charges.
Now we ponder which is more irresponsible: @HillaryClinton 's identifying classified emails or @realDonaldTrump identifying racist retweets
She mishandled top secret classified material in an "extremely careless" manner...which is not "grossly negligent," apparently?
The FBI decision shows once again how the Clintons and others at the top get to live by a different set of rules from everyone else.
110 emails contained classified information & email account was possibly hacked. “Convenience” should never be put before national security.
The findings of the @FBI are a clear indictment of @HillaryClinton's judgement and fitness to be President
The blindfold had clearly been removed from the scales of justice.
@realDonaldTrump - What I got from @FBI Director Comey remarks: @HillaryClinton's recklessness makes her unfit to President! #CrookedHillary
Hillary may not be POTUS, but she'll be on the Winter Olympic team for ice skating, no one has successfully skated on more thin ice than her
Disappointed in FBI's decision to not recommend charges against Clinton. She broke the law.
Section 793 of Espionage act uses "gross negligence" vs "extremely careless" standard in treatment of classified information as found by FBI

NOW WATCH: These are some of the things Donald Trump has taken credit for
