WASHINGTON (AP) – House Republicans have summoned FBI Director James Comey to Capitol Hill today to answer questions about his decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified emails.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says “a lot of questions” still need to be answered about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state and the FBI investigation into it.
The House Judiciary panel has scheduled a hearing next week with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Ryan says Clinton has offered “nothing but stonewalling and dishonesty” on the issue and appears to have received preferential treatment from the FBI.
On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she accepted Comey’s recommendation and the case would be closed.
