Washington, DC – House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) today released the following statement:
|Dean of the U.S. House|
John Conyers, Jr.
“There has already been a lengthy and thorough investigation into Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Nothing in today’s letter suggests that the FBI or the Department of Justice will reach a different conclusion than the one they reached months ago, when they decided criminal prosecution was unwarranted.
“Any inference or conclusion to the contrary would be completely speculative and unjustified. In fact, the press has already reported that the emails in question did not come from the Secretary’s server—and were not withheld from investigators by Secretary Clinton or her campaign.
“Donald Trump and his allies seem to put their faith in the integrity of the FBI only when it serves their political purposes. I would expect that this investigation will continue to be impartial, and that this additional step—taken only in an abundance of caution—will further clear Secretary Clinton of any wrongdoing.”
