Judicial Watch Statement on Decision by FBI Director James Comey to Reopen Investigation into Hillary Clinton’s Emails
OCTOBER 28, 2016
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding today’s letter by Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James B. Comey announcing that the FBI is investigating new evidence in the Clinton email matter:
The FBI’s seeming decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information is astonishing. Once again, we suspect our Freedom of Information Act and other investigations have spurred the FBI to act. This decision highlights the corruption, favoritism, and incompetence in the FBI/Justice Department investigation of Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton’s email misconduct and lies, aided and abetted by the Obama administration, have created a national crisis. The FBI needs to disclose more information about what it found and when – the American voters deserve answers now.
Judicial Watch helped break open the Clinton email scandal and, no matter what the FBI does, will independently continue its historic litigation and investigation.
