Oversight Democrats Release New Video Documenting Republican Refusal to Accept Unanimous FBI Decision on Clinton EmailsAt a hearing last week before the Committee, FBI Director James Comey provided significant new information that debunked Republican conspiracy theories, yet Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte sent a referral to the FBI requesting another investigation into whether Secretary Clinton told the truth when she testified before Congress. They ignored a letter from Ranking Member Elijah Cummings explaining why this criminal referral was “unwarranted” given the new facts Director Comey provided at the hearing.
Cummings to Chaffetz: Criminal Referral “Unwarranted” After Learning New Facts at Today’s Hearing With FBI DirectorToday, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter to Chairman Jason Chaffetz regarding his statements at today’s hearing that he is considering sending a referral to the FBI to investigate whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied when she testified before Congress that she did not send or receive emails marked classified.
On Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey stated with respect to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails: “Only a very small number of the emails containing classified information bore markings indicating the presence of classified information.”
