(B) In his July press conference, FBI director James Comey had described Clinton's management of her private email server to be “extremely careless”.

Hillary's private server contained dozens of email chains that had classified documents, including eight whose contents were “top secret.” 

     Now we know more:
At least one email account on Hillary's private server was hacked in January 2013. 

The email account belonged to an undisclosed female staffer in President Clinton's office. 

The hacker apparently used an anonymity software known as "Tor" to login to the account to browse "e-mail folders and attachments." 

According to FBI notes, the FBI "was unable to identify the actor(s) responsible for this login or how [staffer's] login credentials were compromised."

(C) In public, the FBI recommended not filing criminal charges against Clinton on national security grounds.

In private, they chose to defer to the State Department on whether to recommend anyone at State to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution on records law violations

Federal laws make it a felony to intentionally conceal, remove or destroy federal records as defined under the Federal Records Act, punishable with a fine and imprisonment of up to three years.

A single conviction means any violator "shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States."

There were thousands of violations of the Records Act: Using forensics, the FBI recovered from computer drives and other witnesses about 15,000 emails from Mrs. Clinton's private account that dealt with government business, most that had not been turned over by her or her aides.
