House Republicans Accuse Hillary Clinton of Perjury

At several points during her sworn testimony before Congress, statements made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were "incompatible with evidence collected" during the FBI investigation into her use of a private email server.

Monday afternoon, House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sent a letter to U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Channing Phillips. The letter contained an official referral for Phillips' office to investigate Clinton on potential charges of perjury.

"The evidence collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation 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, which are described in greater detail below," the letter states. "During a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing on Oct. 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."

Goodlatte and Chaffetz wrote the letter as a follow-up to a letter the chairmen wrote last month, inquiring whether or not there was an investigation pending into Clinton's sworn testimony. The Justice Department sent the congressmen a response to that letter last week, saying the information was being reviewed and that the department will "take appropriate action as necessary."
