House Republicans Say Hillary Lied, Make Case for Perjury Charge

House Republicans are continuing to push for legal action to be taken against Hillary Clinton, laying out a four-point case for the Department of Justice to charge her with perjury.
According to The Hill, Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Jason Chaffetz of Utah — the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees — found inconsistencies in what Clinton told a House panel last year regarding her use of a private email setup while she served as secretary of state and what the FBI discovered to be true during its investigation.
The pair sent a letter to Channing Phillips, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, with their findings and said there is evidence that appears to “directly contradict” what Clinton told lawmakers.
“Although there may be other aspects of Secretary Clinton’s sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI’s findings, her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence,” the letter reads, reports The Hill.
Critics were baffled by the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Clinton despite the fact that it concluded she was “extremely careless” while using a private email network and several email addresses while she worked in the Obama administration.
Goodlatte and Chaffetz, according to The Hill, pointed out four instances where Clinton did not tell the truth when she answered questions from the House Select Committee on Benghazi last October. Those statements were:
•Clinton’s claim that nothing was marked classified on her email server.
•Clinton’s claim that her lawyers looked at each email before deleting more than 30,000 that were deemed personal.
•Clinton’s claim that she gave the Department of State copies of all work-related emails.
•Clinton’s claim that she used one email server while she worked in the State Department.
