Clinton's People Are Whining About the Ongoing Criminal Investigation

12/21/16 New York Times:
WASHINGTON — After a federal judge unsealed a search warrant this week that the F.B.I. had used to examine emails related to the previously closed inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s private server, some of her backers said it proved their contention that the warrant should never had been sought because it would not have changed the outcome of that investigation.
The decision by the bureau’s director, James B. Comey, to make the new email examination public in the presidential election’s closing days was a “stain” on his legacy and amounted to an “extraordinary impropriety,” Mrs. Clinton’s supporters said. Mrs. Clinton herself has said that Mr. Comey’s move cost her the election.
But while the F.B.I. ultimately did not find anything to alter its decision in July not to pursue criminal charges against Mrs. Clinton or her aides, agents believed they needed to examine the emails to be certain there was nothing new in them. This is common procedure for the bureau, whether the case involves a former secretary of state like Mrs. Clinton or anyone else.
Please don't look at possible felony charges for our empress!

RE: drivers' licenses:

Article IV (Article 4 - States' Relations)
Section 1

Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.
Section 2

1: The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.

In which category - public acts, Records, or judicial proceedings - do drivers' licenses reside? And, clearly, Congress has the authority to establish recognition through legislation.

A separate consideration may also be marriage licenses. Prior to Obergefell there was unanimous recognition of marriage licenses among the 51 jurisdictions despite specific and non-universal requirements for obtaining one in some of the 51, such as blood tests, etc. Some exceptions existed - polygamy, for example, and some states did not recognize inter-racial marriage for a period, but it's certainly universal recognition now.
