Did Hillary Commit Perjury By Lying to The FBI? Or to Congress?

The FBI is expected to release notes from its July 1 interview with former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton about her use of private email servers to transmit and store top secret, classified information. According to the FBI, the interview wasn't electronically recorded and was conducted just three days before FBI Director James Comey announced charges would not be brought against Clinton despite her "extremely careless" mishandling of classified information.

Now, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte are making the case Clinton committed perjury by either lying to the FBI or lying under oath during Congressional testimony. 

In a letter sent to U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Channing Phillips Monday, Chaffetz and Goodlatte outlined their case by highlighting numerous examples of Clinton's own conflicting statements about her private email server. 

“The evidence collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony," the letter states. "During a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing on October 22, 2015, Secretary Clinton testified with respect to (1) whether she sent or received emails that were marked classified at the time; (2) whether her attorneys reviewed each of the emails on her personal email system; (3) whether there was one, or more servers that stored work-related emails during her time as Secretary of State; and (4) whether she provided all her work-related emails to the Department of State."
 
“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 FBI Director James Comey described in his public statement on July 5, 2016 and in testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on July 7, 2016,” the letter continues.

The bottom line? Clinton either lied to the FBI or she lied to Congress. Doing so in either case is a federal crime.
