House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia issued an announcement saying they will investigate the FBI for the way they handled the Clinton 2016 email probe.
“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered,” the Gowdy and Goodlatte stated.
Involved in the many matters they found out were the “FBI’s decision to appropriate full decision making in respect to charging or not charging Secretary Clinton to the FBI rather than the DOJ” as well as the “FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions.”
“The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn,” the Republican lawmakers said.

“Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken,” they continued.
The FBI revealed records in October showing that ex- FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to FBI saying not to bring charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding the email investigation that occurred months before FBI concluded the interviews with crucial witnesses, including Hillary.
Anyhow, Comey lied before the House Judiciary Committee while testifying, and said he wasn’t involved in the decision not to bring charges against Hillary.
“All I can do is tell you again, the decision was made after that because I didn’t know what was going to happen in that interview,” Comey said.
Gowdy said Comey’s “chronology does not add up.”
He highlighted the recently released emails by FBI as a response to the Freedom of Information Act, which proved Comey was talking about Clinton’s case in May.
“(Comey’s) ostensible reason for taking that decision away from the Department of Justice was that meeting on the tarmac (between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch),” Gowdy said. “But yet a month and a half earlier he is memorializing a decision he’s already made.”
“I’m just not sure Director Comey gave him an accurate answer.”
