November 7, 2016: FBI Director James Comey has told Congress he has not changed a conclusion reached in July that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did nothing criminal in using a private server for emails when she was secretary of state.

Comey made the announcement in a letter Sunday after the bureau reviewed a new batch of emails discovered during a separate investigation involving former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of key Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

In his letter to Congress, Comey said investigators have been “working around the clock” processing and reviewing the emails written to and by Clinton when she was secretary of state. Based on their review, he said, “we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

Comey said in July that while Clinton may have been “extremely careless” in handling classified information, there was no criminal intent and that prosecutors would reach the same decision.

Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri told reporters Sunday the campaign is “glad that this matter is resolved. We are glad to see that he (Comey) has found, as we were confident he would, that he’s confirmed the conclusions that he reached in July.”

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reacted by saying Clinton is protected by a “rigged system.”

Voter polls have tightened since Comey’s announcement two weeks ago that more Clinton emails were uncovered.

Trump saw it as a gift, telling voters that the rival he loves to call “Crooked Hillary” would be impeached and face criminal investigations if she were elected.

With less than two days before millions of U.S. voters cast their ballots, the Clinton camp likely will use the Sunday letter from Comey as its gift.

Trump and Clinton have just one more full day to convince undecided voters that he or she should take over for President Barack Obama in January.

Clinton told worshippers at an African-American church in Philadelphia Sunday, “this election is about doing everything we can to stop the movement to destroy President Obama’s legacy. In fact, it is about building on the gains and progress we’ve made in the last eight years. It is about choosing hope over fear, unity over division and love over hate.”

The Clinton campaign will climax Monday night in Philadelphia with a superstar rally headlined by rock icon Bruce Springsteen, and including the Obamas and the entire Clinton family.

Trump will spend an exhausting last day of the campaign in five states his campaign believes he must win — Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Michigan.

“We need a government that can go to work on day one for the American people,” Trump declared Sunday. “That will be impossible with Hillary Clinton…her current scandals and controversies will continue throughout her presidency and will make it virtually impossible for her to govern.” (VOA)

Restaurateurs Prodyut and Sumana Mukherjee have not only brought Indian cuisine to the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 here but also plan to dish out free dinner to countrymen if Argentina wins the trophy on July 15.

Based in Moscow for the last 27 years, Prodyut and Sumana run two Indian eateries, “Talk Of The Town” and “Fusion Plaza”.

Both restaurants serve popular Indian dishes like butter chicken, kebabs and a varied vegetarian spread.

During the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018, there will be 25 per cent discount for those who will possess a Fan ID (required to watch World Cup games).

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

The Mukherjees, hailing from Kolkata, are die-hard fans of Argentina. Despite Albiceleste drawing 1-1 with Iceland in their group opener with Lionel Messi failing to sparkle, they believe Jorge Sampaoli’s team can go the distance.

“I am an Argentina fan. I have booked tickets for a quarterfinal match, a semifinal and of course the final. If Argentina goes on to lift

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
