Issa on FBI Decision to Reopen Investigation into Hillary Clinton’s Private Email Server
Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, today issued the following statement after the FBIannounced that it has re-opened its investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to send and receive classified information.
“This decision shows exactly why we need strong watchdogs in Congress to ensure thorough oversight of the executive branch. The federal government constantly needs to be held accountable to curb poor judgment — like using a private server to circumvent federal records laws — and incomplete investigations that fail to deliver justice and erode public faith in government. This decision also makes clear that Hillary Clinton’s continued efforts to deceive the public on her actions that willingly put classified information at risk, need to come to an end.”

“With the FBI reopening their investigation, it’s important that this time we get it right. As a representative of more than 42,000 Marines at Camp Pendleton many of whom handle classified information every day, it’s critical that Clintons and other well-connected elites are held to the same standards they are. As a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, I’ll be working with Chairman Goodlatte and others to ensure the FBI completes its investigation thoroughly and impartially this time around.”
