People are still reeling after the FBI Director statement outlining all the foolish and illegal things Hillary did – and then said the Attorney General shouldn’t indict her.
But it looks like Congressional Republicans aren’t taking the decision sitting down – here’s what they’re threatening to do about it!
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte has a lot of questions for FBI Director James Comey, given the news that Comey won’t recommend criminal charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information.
“It is clear that Secretary Clinton possibly jeopardized the safety and security of our citizens and nation through her use of private email servers,” the Virginia Republican said in a Tuesday statement. “None should be above the law, and the American people need to know that federal law enforcement is taking this misconduct seriously.”
Goodlatte “raised several concerns” with Comey in a phone call and peppered him with questions in a letter following up on that conversation. The inquiries centered on how Comey concluded that Clinton shouldn’t be prosecuted for “gross negligence” in light of his conclusion that she showed “extreme carelessness” in handling classified information, including top-secret military information.
Other Republicans are demanding answers, and some are talking about beginning a Congressional investigation into the decision. Ted Cruz demanded that all of the information gathered about the investigation be turned over to Congress – you can bet Hillary won’t like that!!
