Chairman Johnson Statement on FBI Reopening Clinton Email Investigation

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, had this to say following the announcement the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would examine newly discovered emails “pertinent to the investigation” into Secretary Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

“Today’s announcement by FBI Director Comey is an important step toward accountability and transparency on Secretary Clinton’s private email system,” said Johnson. “With the FBI already determining that Secretary Clinton sent and received classified information through her private email system, it is important for the FBI to fully examine these additional materials.  I hope that the FBI will be transparent with Congress and the American people as it continues to examine Secretary Clinton’s extremely careless behavior.”
