There's no grand jury: Who would the FBI recommend criminal charges to?

Did someone in power have a little talk with the FBI director?

Oh, since no grand jury has been impaneled, to whom would the FBI recommend that charges be filed?

Just how does even an organization like the FBI review 650,000 emails in nine days?

From AP:
FBI Director James Comey informed key lawmakers on Sunday that he still does not believe that Hillary Clinton should face criminal prosecution over her use of private email servers during her time as secretary of state. Comey said his conclusion came after FBI agents reviewed all of the newly discovered messages to or from Clinton found on electronic devices that belonged to her top aide’s estranged husband, disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.

"The FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation," Comey said in his letter.

"During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State. Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton," he continued.
Donald Trump, when he heard of the news, said that Clinton is being protected by "a rigged system."
