FBI Director Swears: 'I DON'T REMEMBER Reviewing' Clinton's Sworn Testimony

17 views

FBI Director James Comey testified, under oath, Thursday that he did not remember reviewing Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony that “there was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received.”

Comey appeared before the House Oversight Committee to answer questions about his recommendation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not be indicted for her use of a private, unauthorized personal server to send and receive classified information.

Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) succeeded in getting Dir. Comey to admit that Hillary Clinton did, in fact, send and received classified emails.

But, when Rep. Chaffetz asked Comey about Hillary Clinton’s sworn testimony to the Select Committee on Benghazi, the FBI director testified that he didn’t recall having ever read Clinton’s testimony:

Rep. Chaffetz: "Did you review the documents where Congressman Jim Jordan asked her, specifically, and she said, quote, 'There was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received,' end quote?"

FBI Dir. Comey: "I don’t remember reviewing that particular testimony. I am aware of that being said."

Seriously?

So, the FBI director swore, under oath, that he doesn't recall reviewing one of the most critical statements made, under oath, by the woman he was investigating.

If true, that suggests that not a single person in Comey's office brought that testimony to his attention in a communication that would be subject to a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Rep. Chaffetz then promised that the FBI will have a Congressional request to investigate whether or not Clinton perjured herself  with that testimony “in the next few hours”:

Rep. Chaffetz: "Did the FBI ever investigate her statements, under oath, on this topic?"

Dir. Comey: "Not to my knowledge. I don’t there’s been a referral from Congress."

Rep. Chaffetz: "Do you need a referral from Congress to investigate her statements under oath?"

Dir. Comey: "Sure do."

Rep. Chaffetz: "You’ll have one. You’ll have one, in the next few hours."
