FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshell during a House meeting, leading to a heated exchange with one Republican representative.
Politico reported that during that meeting, Comey confirmed that some of Hillary Clinton’s statements about her email investigation to the House Benghazi Committee in Oct. 2015 were not true.
He stated that the FBI found classified information on her server even after Clinton denied any classified material having been stored there.
And Rep. Trey Gowdy made sure that he had heard Comey right.
He immediately asked Comey if Clinton had lied in saying that she did not email “any classified material to anyone on my email” and “there is no classified material.”
“No, there was classified material emailed,” Comey said.
“Secretary Clinton said she used one device. Was that true?” the South Carolina Republican asked.
“She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as secretary of state,” responded Comey.
Comey even admitted that the FBI found thousands of work-related emails that had not been turned over to the State Department as required by federal law. And, when Gowdy asked him if Clinton had ever deleted work-related emails from her personal account, Comey dropped a bombshell.
“We found traces of work-related emails in, on devices or in slack space. Whether they were deleted or whether when a server was changed out something happened to them, there’s no doubt that (there were) work-related emails that were removed electronically from the email system,” Comey said.
