Hillary Clinton Lied to Congress, House Seeks Perjury Charges

According to the evidence the FBI collected after being reviewed by two top House Republicans, what Hillary Clinton told Congress was a lie.  In other words, Hillary lied to Congress, and perjury charges may be forthcoming.

Democrats lie.  That is what they do.  It is no surprise that Hillary Clinton failed to give Congress an honest accounting of her use of a secret email server while she was secretary of state.

The two Republicans, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah, have officially referred the matter to the Justice Department for prosecution.  Will Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and her top aides continue to refuse to seek justice, even when the evidence is this obvious?  Or, perhaps we should ask that now that these Republicans have finally cornered Hillary, how long will it be before the Clintons have assassins zeroing in on the two men?

The lies occurred when Hillary Clinton gave statements to Congress during her 2015 testimony to the House committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Mrs. Clinton testified at that time that she never sent or received information marked classified. FBI Director Comey told Congress last month that three such documents were in fact marked at the time she handled them via email.

Hillary also testified that when she belatedly agreed to comply with open-records laws and return her work-related emails to the government, she had her attorneys go “through every single email.” But Mr. Comey said Mrs. Clinton’s attorneys used only search terms and subject lines to decide which emails to return and did not read each one.

The FBI director said thousands of work-related messages were not turned over to the State Department, and Mrs. Clinton had multiple servers during her time using the secret account.

Members of Congress were expecting to get a look at the FBI’s notes of its interview with Mrs. Clinton during the email investigation.

The notes could provide more insight into whether Mrs. Clinton was truthful in her 2015 testimony.
