House panel ramps up pressure on FBI over Clinton emails

The House Oversight Committee is increasing the pressure on the FBI to hand over additional details related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State.

In a letter on Monday, committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked FBI Director James Comey for additional information about the presence of classified information on the system of personal machines Clinton used.

He also pushed for the FBI to create an unclassified version of the files it sent to Capitol Hill last week detailing its yearlong investigation, which could then be made public.

“What we’re asking the FBI in a letter today to do is create an unclassified version and then release that to the public,” Chaffetz said on Fox News Monday. “Let’s go ahead and get that out there sooner rather than later.”

“It’s so sensitive and so classified that even I, as the chairman of the Oversight Committee, don’t have the high level of clearance to see what’s in the materials,” he said during a separate appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

    Who does the FBI work for? barak Hussein obama! Do they want to keep their job? Yes. So they are going to play the game called “Muslim is a religion of peace” or else they no longer have a job. So remember when someone is murdering an American and says “allah akbar” you didn’t hear what you heard.

    If the emails were so classified that congressional investigators on the oversight committee could not see them then Hillary should not have sent them through a personal server. I think this makes the case that Hillary was sloppy in how she handled confidential and classified information.

    Yeh don’t anyone out there hold your breath. I have watched all the hearings on Benghazi, the emails, terrorism, illegals, refugees the Iran Deal and believe me folks Daffy Duck could see the truth of what is going on.

    Not our Congress Oh No, not our FBI who testified and validated wrong doing with H, how dangerous the refugees are and illegals, along with our CIA, Homeland Security but Hooptie Doo and let her ride they won’t do NOTHING.

    Just blowing smoke up our skirts and pants and personally I am ready to take them all to the cleaners. The whole bunch needs an enema. Washington needs to be flushed out. The stench is reaching across the pond but at least they smell it.

    Treason is still punishable by death, especially during wartime. Obama has declared America a battlefield so…..

      An EO can not change the definition of Treason in our Constitution and that is H and O the HO’s of America to a tee.

      If we had a Real Congress, with Real Republicans and Democrats of old they would both be getting ready for the firing squad but instead O is planning to stay in D.C. and H is running for stooge in the WH.
