<p>In the moments following FBI Director James Comey&rsquo;s announcement on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges for her private e-mail servers scandal, the cast assembled by ABC News hailed the <strong>&ldquo;extraordinary decision&rdquo; </strong>as<strong> &ldquo;a momentous day&rdquo; </strong>signaling that<strong> &ldquo;a cloud is lifted&rdquo; </strong>for Clinton to continue on with the presidential race and President Obama to give his own thoughts on the matter.</p>

<p>Senior Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas dubbed Comey&rsquo;s recommendation an<strong> &ldquo;extraordinary decision&rdquo;</strong> and blistering for Clinton but emphasized the early spin that<strong> &ldquo;they looked at precedent and found no case like it where prosecutors would have went for it and did not believe the Justice Department would have gone for it.&rdquo;</strong></p>
