Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server was a “clear indictment of Hillary Clinton’s judgement.”

Comey called Clinton’s use of private email and the State Department’s handling of classified information “extremely careless,” but he still advised against prosecuting Clinton.
Spicer told CNN in an interview after his tweet that any other staffer at the State Department would have been charged .
“Any other employee that works at the State Department that did what she did would have their security clearance pulled and would be facing charges,” Spicer said. “This is absolutely ridiculous.”
“If she followed the law like everybody else and used a State Department account or used even a private system like the director pointed out like Gmail, this wouldn’t be a problem,” Spicer said. “She chose to set up a system for herself around the rules that were established for everybody else for a reason, and that reason is because she didn’t want people to know what she was doing.”
