FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress about his investigation into the criminal activities of Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday. While the conversation went much as expected, there was one moment in particular that should spike interest:
“Did Hillary Clinton lie under oath?” Chaffetz asked.
“Not to the FBI,” Comey responded. “Not in a case we were working.”
Chaffetz then reminded the FBI director that Clinton claimed under oath that “there was nothing marked classified” in her emails, either “sent or received.”
Comey said was “aware” of the comments but the FBI has not investigated the testimony because there has not been a referral from Congress.
“Do you need a referral from Congress to investigate her statements under oath?” Chaffetz pressed.
“Sure do,” Comey replied.
“You’ll have one,” Chaffetz said. “You’ll have one in the next few hours.”
Here’s video of the entire proceeding:
