Far from quieting the controversy around presumptive Democrat nominee’s email scandal, the FBI’s stunning announcement of no charges for Hillary Clinton has only amped it up to new decibel levels.And FBI Director James Comey has some ‘splaining to do. The GOP House Oversight Committee has just announced the FBI director will testify tomorrow.
Via Politico:House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced that FBI Director James Comey will testify before his panel on Thursday regarding the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email practices.
“Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation,” Chaffetz said in a statement announcing that Comey had agreed to his request.
Indeed we do. It’s not just a right, it’s an imperative for the future of our republic and the rule of law.If there has ever been a time for our GOP leadership to stand up, it’s now. This is a start…
Will be interesting to understand how Comey reconciles his determination that Clinton was “extremely careless” for using her private email server to send classified material as secretary of State with his decision not to recommend charges against her.
