SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) - Several Maine lawmakers say they’re accepting the FBI’s recommendation that presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton shouldn’t face charges for her controversial email practices as secretary of state.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, who is an Independent, tells WCSH-TV (https://on.wcsh6.com/29hQlT4 ) he trusts the FBI’s decision and says using a private email server isn’t unprecedented.

King says he’s more concerned with the government’s cybersecurity after the State Department’s server was hacked.

Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins says it appears to have been a thorough and independent investigation and says she accepts the decision.

While Democratic U. S. Rep. Chellie Pingree (PING’-ree) said “it’s time to move on,” fellow Republican congressman Bruce Poliquin says Clinton’s actions were unacceptable.

Poliquin says the country deserves to have leaders who are “held accountable for their actions.”
