Comment On The FBI’s Independent Review of Secretary Clinton’s Use of Email

Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.),
Ranking Member, Senate Judiciary Committee,
On The FBI’s Independent Review of Secretary Clinton’s Use of Email

July 5, 2016

“The FBI took its responsibilities seriously, and came to a conclusion after carefully reviewing all of the evidence. I take Director Comey at his word that the FBI honestly and independently conducted an apolitical and professional investigation. I commend him for making public his recommendation not to bring criminal charges. I trust that the Department of Justice career prosecutors will consider the FBI’s recommendation and make a final decision based on facts, not politics. It is time that we focus on helping the American people, by working to protect the middle class, reforming our immigration system, and enacting meaningful criminal justice reform.”
