Issa Calls for Criminal Investigation into Clinton E-mail Server

Press Release
Aug 12, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC –  Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) today released the following statement in response to the revelation that Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server would be taken into the custody of the FBI and Department of Justice:

“If any other American had shown the same disregard for securing classified information that Hillary Clinton showed, the United States government would move quickly and decisively to hold them responsible. Months after we learned about Clinton’s secret e-mail server, the FBI and DOJ have finally mustered the motivation necessary to take it into their custody.

“The only reasonable path forward is a criminal investigation.

“Recall that, in 2003, Bill Clinton’s national security adviser, Sandy Berger, was caught removing five classified documents from the National Archives. He faced felony charges that were ultimately reduced to a misdemeanor, two years of probation, 100 hours of community service, a loss of security clearance for three years, and a $50,000 fine.  And both the FBI and DOJ recommended felony charges over General David Petraeus’ mishandling of classified information.

“After months of false assurances from Secretary Clinton, we now know that she recklessly maintained a private server containing classified documents, some of which were classified at the highest level. She also transmitted, received, and stored significantly more than five documents. The only remaining question is whether she will be held accountable for her actions.
