Attorney General Loretta Lynch will accept the “determinations and findings” of the FBI and career prosecutors who are investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, a Justice Department official said Friday.

Lynch is expected to discuss her handling of the case at an event Friday morning in Aspen, Colorado.

The comments from the official follow criticism stemming from a private meeting Lynch had with former President Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport earlier this week.

The news of Lynch’s decision was first reported by the New York Times.
