House Republicans formally ask DOJ to investigate Hillary Clinton for perjury

Clinton- perjuryAlthough the FBI and the Obama Department of Justice have said that “crooked” Hillary Clinton is essentially above the law with regards to her email server, Republicans in the House of Representatives have formally asked the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia to investigate her for perjury, Fox News reported Monday.

According to Fox:

Reps. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the Oversight panel, and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., head of the Judiciary Committee, said in a letter that “evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony.”

“In light of those contradictions, the department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes,” the two congressmen wrote.

Republicans have been furious that the FBI decided last week against pressing charges against Clinton over her handling of classified information when she relied on a private email server for government business during her tenure as secretary of state.

Last Ocober, the report says, Clinton told members of Congress that she never sent or received emails marked as classified and she only used one device.  But FBI Director James Comey said she not only had multiple devices, and some of her emails carried classified markings.

Given what we’ve seen from this “Justice” Department, though, I’m not holding my breath…
