Issa Statement on Today’s Reports Relating to Secretary Clinton’s Email Practices

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) released the following statement regarding developments in the Secretary Clinton email scandal today:

“From someone who wants to be Commander-in-Chief, the American people deserve the truth, rather than Secretary Hillary Clinton’s murky denials and a drummed up ‘everybody did it’ defense meant to distract. The attempt to paint her predecessors in the State Department as equal offenders in mishandling classified material is an insult to what we now know to be the truth.

“Official investigations have confirmed that Secretary Clinton’s unsecure server stored more than 1,000 emails containing classified information, including some classified at the very highest levels. Her guarantee to the nation that the number was zero now seems more like desperation than news cycle spin.

“I trust that the FBI, Inspectors General and other official agencies will commit to a full accounting of this scandal and remember their fundamental duty to the principles of government transparency, public accountability, and our national security.”
