Rep. Chaffetz says he’ll request FBI investigate if Clinton lied
“Did Hillary Clinton lie?,” Chaffetz asked Comey.
“To the FBI? We have no basis to conclude that she lied to the FBI,” Comey answered.
“Did she lie to the public?” Chaffetz asked.
“That’s a question I’m not qualified to answer. I can speak speak about what she said to the FBI,” Comey answered.
Chaffetz then asked Comey if Clinton lied under oath when she told Rep. Jim Jordan under oath that, “there was nothing marked classified on my emails either sent or received.” Comey said he hadn’t reviewed that testimony, but was aware of its existence, and noted that there hadn’t been a referral from Congress to investigate the veracity of the testimony.
“Do you need a referral from Congress to investigate her statements under oath?,” Chaffetz asked.
“Sure do,” Comey responded.
“You’ll have one.” Chaffetz said. “You’ll have one in the next few hours.”
