House Republicans Ask FBI Director To Defend Decision To Not Charge Hillary Clinton
Because the House Republicans haven't wasted enough time and money chasing empty dreams of bringing Hillary Clinton down.
In the wake of the FBI's recommendation to not charge former Secretary of State over her use of a private email server, Rep, Jason Chaffetz, current chair of the House Oversight Committee, has summoned FBI Director James Comey to the hill to testify (read that - "defend") the decision.
Less than a day after the FBI's announcement, Chaffetz has set a hearing for Thursday at 10 a.m. ET, where Comey will testify before the committee regarding the Bureau's investigation.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan foreshadowed such an event Tuesday night when speaking to Fox News saying, "There are a lot of unanswered questions here."
Clearly, the Republicans are disappointed in the loss of attack fodder for the next four months of the presidential election, and are choosing to draw the issue out in the headlines as long as possible.
It's worth noting that James Comey is a long-time Republican with no political allegiance to Hillary Clinton. So, the idea that Hillary somehow curried private favor with the FBI Director is nonsense.
