When did he say that? In fact, in his testimony to Congress, Comey specifically said that she neither lied, nor broke the law.
Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information...
Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past.
To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.
She also used her personal e-mail extensively while outside the United States, including sending and receiving work-related e-mails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.

She is far more progressive than Russ Feingold, who has been mostly silent on everything but the fact that Ron Johnson is a "bad" senator. I have no problem in supporting Clinton. A vote for Stein is a vote for Trump.

Yeah, I know. Tough. We could get that with either of these nominees.
