Washington, DC - Today, Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress reporting that the FBI has completed its review of emails to or from Hillary Clinton when she served as Secretary of State. Based on its review, the FBI stands by its recommendation that no criminal charges are warranted in its investigation of Secretary Clinton's use of a private email server.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) released the following statement:
“In the days that come, we will have many questions about the FBI's handling of this investigation. In the meantime, however, I welcome this news confirming again that no charges are warranted in this matter.”
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) released the following statement:
“Today’s announcement by the FBI affirms and vindicates its findings from this summer with respect to Secretary Clinton. Over past week, Republicans have engaged in wild speculation and launched unsubstantiated accusations, but the FBI has determined—yet again—that they are without merit. Now it is time for the American people to go forward based on the facts.”
