The department criticized her for not seeking permission to use the server and also stated it would not have approved it if she had.
The FBI’s director James B. Comey announced that according to their investigation the agency would not recommend criminal charges against Clinton.
Clinton’s email troubles started to resurface on October 28,2016 when Comey revealed in a letter to Congress that while investigating disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner for texts he had sent to a 15-year old girl, law enforcement officials had found emails that appeared “to be pertinent” to the closed investigation of Clinton’s use of a personal email server.

Hillary Clinton VS Donald Trump
On countless concern, the candidates’ positions line up with a political platform on their platform. Just like Hillary Clinton supports the DREAM Act, a path for an undocumented citizen who got in the country illegally to be legal.
On the other hand, Trump wants to deport all undocumented immigrant, and now constructing a wall on the Mexico border. Trump had also prohibited on allowing far-off Muslims to enter the United States (US) until they figure out what’s going on.
Hillary Clinton has terms for a path to ‘Full and equal citizens’ for undocumented refugee, who have not committed any violent crimes.
Trumps want to get rid of Obama’s managerial actions. As Hillary Clinton guarantee to not only defend Obama’s executive actions but also even take it further. Clinton said as a President she would end “Family detention, close private immigrant detention centers, and help more eligible people become naturalized.
”She offered to create a new government organisation-‘The office of Immigrant Affairs’- to transaction with immigration-related matters. Hillary Clinton also opposed Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims.
She said that ‘It’s unconstitutional and Un-American because America is a secular state where all religions and atheists are to be treated equally.
In 2015, The Supreme Court decided to legalize gay marriages. Therefore, it is not a big matter or political issue. This topic is included to see and compare the Candidates changed positions.
Until 2011-12, Hillary Clinton was against same-sex marriages, but she was in favor of civil unions and offering legal protection to gay couples.
In 2013, many democratic figures changed their views on same-sex marriages including President Obama and Clinton came out to support same-sex/Gay marriages. Trump has always supported the Gay rights.
Trump has considered suggesting the Supreme Court of Justice, who would overturn the gay marriages legalization ruling. He also suggests a ‘Value Test’ of would-be-immigrant to the US and tests their ideological compatibility with women’s and gay rights.
Black lives issue
The Black lives issue is the one topic on which both applicants have called for stronger and to be more agreeable. There should be an appropriate relationship between the police and the community they serve.
Trump has called for more police, particularly in areas where crimes rated are high. He has been in favor of introducing the stop-and-frisk policing system in Chicago because there have been less and low effect crimes in New York (NY).
Hillary Clinton has said that “Contained bias is a problem for everyone, As well as the police.” She is in favor of adding money to the budget. “To help us deal with contained bias by retraining lot of our police officers.” She stated.
Abortion is another topic on which both candidates follow the same path but yet different ways. Hillary Clinton has said that not only she will preserve a woman’s right to choose, but also intended Parenthood because it will provide the woman with an access to critical health and reproductive services.
“I will oppose efforts to roll back women’s access to reproductive health care, including Republican efforts to fund Planned Parenthood. As President, I’ll stand up for Planned Parenthood and women’s access to critical health services including safe and legal abortion.” – Clinton.
Another side, Trump has to preserve Planned Parenthood because of the other services the organization provides to women like scanning and diagnosing for ‘Cervical cancer’ or ‘breast cancer.’ As he speaks sometimes, he doesn’t think before letting those words out. Trump has been asked a question, ‘What should Happen if abortion was illegal and was performed anyway?’
trump answered, ‘A law has broken, the woman getting an abortion should go to jail,’ After coming back to his sense he changed his statement and said, ‘The physician performing the abortion should be punished, not the woman.”
Both parties are supporting the ‘Death Penalty’. Trump has called for increasing the penalty to include all the killing of police officers.
Hillary Clinton also supports, but believes it has its need only in a limited number of ‘Federal cases’.

Hillary Clinton Fashion
Over the past several decades, Hillary Rodham Clinton has worn a bunch of different looks. She was the former First Lady, New York senator, Secretary of State and most recently, a Democratic nominee for last year’s election. She was always a style icon whether she’s sporting an extravagant gown to the Inaugural Ball or a pantsuit that has “boss” written all over it.
Even though Hillary’s election campaign look was all about color-block tailoring by Ralph Lauren, she was always groomed with a power blow dry. Since the time Hillary Clinton has lost the election, she has returned to the more playful attitude with clothes, sometimes wearing little makeup or opting for bright or glittery outfits.
It reminds us of her time as First Lady in the 90s where she was known for her bright skirt suits and metallic evening-wear.
Hillary Clinton Lookalike
Some magazines’ reports say that former Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler is a lookalike of Hillary Clinton. She resembles Hillary’s school days and the internet cannot keep calm of how much they look alike. This came into notice when Hillary Clinton’s campaign posted Hillary’s young photo on social media in celebration of her 69th birthday.
Hillary Clinton Writings
In 1996, Hillary Clinton declared her vision for the children of America in the book “It Takes A Village: And Other Lessons Children Teaches Us”. Hillary won a Grammy Award for this book’s audio version.
In 2003, Hillary Clinton released a 562 paged autobiography, “Living History”. It was a massive hit and went onto sell in twelve foreign languages.

The New York Times wrote that the aim of the book was to offer an intimate view of what it was like for Clinton to run as the first female presidential candidate.
Hillary Clinton Health
Hillary’s health became a topic of much discussion especially with her election campaign on the run. The news started to surface after a footage of her leaving the 9/11 memorial surfaced online. The then-presidential candidate was seen stumbling and needed help to walk up to her car.
The news of Hillary Clinton being unwell spread like a wildfire but Clinton’s campaign team released a statement claiming that Secretary has suffered from heatstroke and dehydration as she was on antibiotics because she had been diagnosed with pneumonia a few days before the event.
But Donald Trump said that she lacked the stamina to take up the responsibilities of the White House.
Edward Klein, author of the book “Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation” says that according to his sources the doctors had diagnosed Hillary Clinton with arrhythmia, a condition where the heartbeat rhythm is abnormal. He also says that Hillary had a leaking heart valve which required surgery to get fixed.
Hillary Clinton Defended the Rapist
In 1975, Hillary Clinton was appointed as an attorney to a 41-year old man, Tom Taylor who worked in a factory and was accused of raping a minor Shelton (a 12-year-old). Clinton who was practicing her law that time stated that she was not very much happy and thrilled to fight the case but she had no choice but to take it.
Shelton who was infatuated with a 15-year-old boy who also worked in the factory went out on a night drive with Taylor and 20-year old cousin. They all had alcohol and left Shelton and 15year old boy to spend some time.
They got physical and later Taylor approached Shelton and attacked her. The boy heard her screams and saw Taylor hitching up his pants.
Clinton who was defending a rapist, filed an affidavit on July 28, 1975, requesting the court of getting Shelton a psychiatric examination because she was emotionally unstable.
Clinton also raised a point that Shelton had previously made false accusations about persons claiming that they have attacked her. At that time Shelton told her lawyer that she understands why Hillary was accusing her; because she was doing her job.
But in 2014, Shelton told a renowned newspaper that “Hillary Clinton took me through hell”. She was boiling in anger after listening to a recording where Clinton was hear laughing or giggling four times when discussing the case.
Later, Taylor’s charges were dropped from first-degree rape to “unlawful fondling of a child under 14” because of lack of evidence against him or maybe the prosecutors’ couldn’t keep their evidence safe. The only evidence was a pair of underwear that had blood on it which was not enough when they sent a piece of it for examination.
In a nutshell, the memories of that night still come as a shock to Shelton and when Taylor’s sentence was reduced this came as a shock to her. She didn’t let the grudge go and supported Trump’s campaign by accusing Hillary Clinton of the fact that she defends a rapist.
According to the sources, Hillary Clinton tried her best to get out of that case but couldn’t. All she did was her job and accusing her after so many years was not the very right move Kathy Shelton. You could have thought wiser.

She backlashed Trump’s campaign by saying “You didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want, you know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are.
Whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.” She also said that she’s fighting for a fairer, big-hearted inclusive America. *I really hoped she’d win*
