Top House Republicans push for Clinton perjury investigation


Hillary Clinton lied to Congress as far as two House Republicans are concerned.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah claimed evidence collected by the FBI during its email investigation contradicts what she told Congress in testimony last year, reports The Washington Times.

They argue that this could put perjury charges on Clinton and are now asking the Justice Department to investigate.

Her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence FBI Director James Comey described.

The chairmen detailed in a letter sent out Monday that there are other "aspects of Secretary Clinton's sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI's findings."

According to the chairmen,  the Democratic presidential nominee told Congress she never sent or received information marked as classified, but FBI Director James Comey told Congress three documents were in fact marked as classified.

Both chairmen have referred the issue to the Justice Department, which hasn't made a comment on the situation yet.

Should Hillary Clinton be charged with perjury?
