US Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump expressed disappointment at FBI’s decision to not press charges against Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over her alleged private server scandal.

Trump vented his anger on Twitter saying, “The system is rigged. General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.”

Trump’s reaction comes hours after FBI Director James Comey said that the investigative agency will not recommend criminal charges in its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state.

Comey made the announcement Tuesday, three days after FBI agents interviewed Clinton in a final step of its investigation. “Its possible that hostile actors obtained access to Clinton’s personal email,” said Comey.

Comey further said that the agency didn’t find clear evidence that Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws.

The Justice Department has been looking into whether anyone mishandled classified information that flowed through Clinton’s email server. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said last week that she would accept the recommendations of Comey and of career prosecutors.

Although Comey’s announcement removes the threat of criminal charges, it’s unlikely to eliminate concerns about Clinton’s trustworthiness. And it almost certainly won’t stop Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from continuing to make the server a campaign issue.
