FBI Director Set to Testify to House Oversight Committee Tomorrow Over Email Investigation

comey1The FBI may have concluded Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be charged over her emails, but Republicans are far from ready to give up the fight. FBI Director James Comey is set to testify tomorrow on the investigation.

Comey said yesterday that Clinton was extremely reckless, but apparently that recklessness did not rise to the level of criminality.

Head of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz made this announcement today:

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.

So the FBI director will be appearing before the committee tomorrow answering questions on the matter.

Republicans have demanded a full accounting of how Comey and the FBI came to the conclusion they did.

And there is also an effort by Chaffetz to get Attorney General Loretta Lynch to testify yet, even though technically she has not yet announced the DOJ’s determination on the email investigation.
