ALEXANDRIA, VA – Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark issued this statement today in relation to the recent shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota and Texas:
The FBI has decided not to push for criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server for her State Department emails.

Countless other people who have served in roles handling classified information have been prosecuted, fined, and jailed for far lesser breaches of protocol and security.
ALEXANDRIA -- Congress has been debating the merits of adding women into Selective Service to be drafted with men during times of national emergency.
