WASHINGTON (AP) – House Republicans are asking the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia to investigate Hillary Clinton and determine whether she lied to Congress.

Reps. Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Bob Goodlatte of Virginia say in a letter sent Monday that FBI evidence “appears to directly contradict” several of Clinton’s statements under oath.

Clinton testified last October that she never sent or received emails marked as classified when she served as secretary of state. She also has said she only used one mobile device for emails and turned over all of her work-related emails to the State Department.

FBI Director James Comey said she had multiple devices and investigators found thousands of work-related emails that had not been turned over. He said three of her emails carried classified markings.
