GOP Congressmen Call for Hillary Clinton Perjury Investigation

hillary-clinton-2-e1454103811701The chairmen of two House committees are formally requesting the U.S. attorney in D.C. conduct a perjury investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Here is the rationale behind Jason Chaffetz and Bob Goodlatte‘s demand:

The evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony. In light of those contradictions, the Department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes.

Clinton made a number of statements publicly that were contradicted by comments from FBI Director James Comey.
