Abraham statement on FBI, Clinton
July 5, 2016
WASHINGTON – Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, released the following statement in regards to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement today about former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton’s receipt and distribution of top secret and classified information on her private email server.
"Based on what I heard from the FBI director, Sec. Hillary Clinton absolutely deserves to be prosecuted for how negligent she and her office were in handling our nation’s most sensitive information, but much to my extreme disappointment, it seems the government is failing our country once again because of politics. The FBI director stated that seven email chains directly involving Sec. Clinton were “Top Secret.” More than 100 emails were classified. And the worst - he admits that it is possible that foreign enemies obtained that information. From Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s secret meeting with former President Clinton to the announcement today, it’s really no wonder that Sec. Clinton believes the rules don’t apply to her, and it’s no wonder that the American people are losing faith in their government,” Dr. Abraham said.
