Comment On DOJ Announcement Regarding State Department Email Investigation

Comment of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.),
Ranking Member, Senate Judiciary Committee,
On The Announcement by the Department of Justice Regarding State Department Email Investigation

July 6, 2016

“The Attorney General has followed through on her commitment to accept the unanimous recommendation of FBI Director Comey and career prosecutors at the Department of Justice. I have every confidence that this investigation was conducted in an independent, apolitical, and professional manner. This investigation is closed, and that should be the end of this matter. It is disappointing that Republicans do not have the same confidence in our nation’s top law enforcement officials. Instead of another round of politically-motivated hearings at the taxpayers’ expense, members of Congress should get to work on things that actually matter to the American people.”
