When the State Department Inspector General Steve Linick concluded his investigation of Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a non-secure private server in her home to transmit classified material while she served as Secretary of State, he released a heavily footnoted 83-page report on the matter.
When FBI Director James Comey concluded his year-long investigation, he simply held a press conference and made a statement – devoid of any such “official” report from his agency. Yesterday, Wall Street On Parade contacted the FBI and asked when the official report might be forthcoming. We received the following emailed response:
“We don’t have any additional information to provide at this time. Thank you.”
The U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is apparently not content with the abbreviated statement from FBI Director James Comey either. The Committee has called Comey to testify today along with State Department Inspector General Linick and Charles McCullough, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. The hearing will convene at 10:00 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building.
Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Chair of the Committee, released a statement regarding the hearing that said:
“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing. The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable. Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation. I thank Director Comey for accepting the invitation to publicly answer these important questions.”
It is now indisputable that the presumptive Democratic nominee for President has repeatedly told serious falsehoods to the American people about her email transmission of classified material. Even the New York Times, which has endorsed Clinton for President, carried the Associated Press article titled: “Clinton Email Claims Collapse Under FBI Probe,” which laid bare Clinton’s serial untruths in the matter.
