Congress: Prosecuting Hillary Clinton Is A Top Priority
Confirmation that the criminal investigation will continue
Congress has confirmed that the investigation into Hillary Clinton's criminal activity whilst she was Secretary of State will continue and be a top priority.
The announcement was made by the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman, Jason Chaffetz, who said that the investigation into Clinton's private email server "will continue" despite her crushing defeat in the presidential elections.
Mr. Chaffetz could be seen greeting Hillary as she made her way up the steps during the live feed of the inauguration event, following her arrival in when the crowd could be heard chanting, "lock her up" as she was announced on the stage.
After shaking hands with Hillary Clinton, Chaffetz posted a photo of the encounter on his Instagram profile with the caption:
"So pleased she is not the President. I thanked her for her service and wished her luck. The investigation continues."
YNW reports: The announcement by Rep. Chaffetz (R-Utah) will be music to the ears of the tens of thousands of inauguration attendees heard chanting “Lock her up! Lock her up!“
“Just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away, so of course I am going to continue to pursue that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, told reporters.
Chaffetz called finishing the investigation into Hillary Clinton one of his “top priorities” for the committee and noted the State Department has been “terribly slow and inefficient” in turning over documents forcing this to be dragged out.
“It was potentially one of the largest breaches in security in the history of the State Department. It cannot and should not be repeated ever again,” he said. “There are still open questions that we need to finish up so they won’t happen again.”
The FBI completed its own investigation into Clinton’s use of a private server while she served as secretary of state. The agency concluded Clinton’s email use was “extremely careless” but did not recommend criminal charges, in a verdict considered by many to be evidence of political cronyism in D.C.
The FBI’s ruling was not enough for the House Oversight and Government and Reform Committee led by Chaffetz.
“This was never a political targeting in the beginning and just because there was a political election doesn’t mean it goes away,” House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told reporters. “There were a lot of other characters that were involved in this that we have to look at.”
Their review will encompass an array of figures, ranging from Clinton’s ousted team, including Huma Abedin, to incumbent leaders of the FBI including Director James Comey.
“This was potentially one of the largest breaches of security in the history of the State Department,” he said. “It cannot and should never be repeated again. How is it that so much information was able to migrate out into the world? These are still open questions that we need to finish up so that they don’t happen again.“
