WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey announced the agency would recommend that federal prosecutors not pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information on multiple private email servers and devices while she was Secretary of State:
“Once again, the Clinton political machine, aided by the Obama Administration, has shown that it plays by its own rules while the rest of us have to follow the Rule of Law. The recommendation from the FBI to the Department of Justice not to pursue criminal charges against Secretary Clinton defies common sense, especially after Director Comey laid out a laundry list of illegal actions.
“Directory Comey confirmed that Hillary Clinton was ‘extremely careless,’ that the agency found ‘110 classified emails’ and ‘eight top secret emails’ on her private servers and it was possible that ‘hostile actors gained access’ to sensitive information. The bottom line is Secretary Clinton’s deceptive actions put our national security and American lives at risk. There has never before been a major nominee for president with such a fraudulent record of lies and corruption.”
