On Tuesday morning, FBI Director James Comey reported the findings of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified emails on her personal email servers. While Comey called Clinton’s decision to maintain private email servers and to send and receive some 110 emails containing classified information “extremely careless,” he ultimately decided not to recommend to Attorney General Loretta Lynch that criminal charges be filed against the Democratic presidential candidate.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a former prosecutor himself, told Fox News he is “so disappointed” in Comey’s decision. “She violated 18 USC section 793,” Giuliani concluded.
Giuliani, however, said the case is still not closed. “Now the interesting thing is the statute of limitations will not have run out on this,” the former New York mayor noted.

Giuliani concluded that if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is elected president, he could appoint an aggressive attorney general to charge Clinton. “If Trump should win and appoint an attorney general who’s got the courage to do it, they could bring this indictment,” he said.
Trump himself made a similar point in a speech in November.

“You better remember: There’s a six-year statute of limitations on that crime,” he said. “So Hillary’s running for a lot of reasons. One of them is because she wants to stay out of jail. Because I am sure — and first of all, everybody gets a fair shake with me — but I am sure whoever the attorney general is, you’ve got a lot of years left on that crime. That’s a crime.”
“If I win, we’re going to look into that crime very, very seriously, folks,” he added. “She’s watching right now and she’s saying to herself, ‘Man, I better win.'”
In his concluding comment, Giuliani said that Clinton “should have at least resigned as a candidate, on the grounds that if she can’t pass a top security clearance, she can’t be president of the United States.”
