GOP Leader Slams FBI’s Investigation of Clinton

How could the FBI recommend no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton after determining she was “extremely careless” with classified information as secretary of state?

That is the question Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he most wanted to ask FBI Director James Comey at the panel’s hearing on Thursday.

According to Comey, his agency’s investigators concluded that no “reasonable prosecutor” would pursue an indictment of Clinton, even though her use of a private email server may have given the nation’s enemies access to government secrets.

“I worry that there are two standards: that if your name is Clinton or you’re part of the rich and powerful, you live under a different set of rules than everybody else, because it does appear based on the fact pattern laid out by the director that if you had done those things, you’d probably be in handcuffs, you’d probably be going to jail and probably should, based on the statute,” Chaffetz said on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

He added: “Look, we’re talking about classified information, and it wasn’t one innocent mistake. This was something that went on for years. It put people’s lives in jeopardy. … I went overseas and the State Department pleaded with me, told me I can’t bring any electronic communication. And yet, the secretary goes and uses her own personal email. How does that happen?”
