On Tuesday, FBI director James Comey recommended that no charges be filed against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state.

Just the day before, WikiLeaks published 1,258 emails that it said were sent and received by Clinton and posted the link on Twitter.

The emails come from Wikileaks’ archive of 30,322 Clinton emails, which the website said were taken from the presidential candidate’s private email server while she was in charge of the State Department. The documents span from June 30, 2010, to Aug. 12, 2014. WikiLeaks said the emails were made available in the form of thousands of PDFs by the U.S. State Department as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request.

It is still up to Justice Department officials as to whether criminal charges will be brought against Clinton, but it is not seen as likely following Comey’s comments. Read nine takeaways from the FBI news conference here.
