Cummings Issues Statement on Republicans’ Frivolous

Perjury Referral for Secretary Clinton

 

Washington, D.C. (August 16, 2016) – Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement after receiving a letter from the FBI confirming that not one of the emails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received was properly marked classified:

 

“Republicans claim they hate frivolous lawsuits, but just this week they made a frivolous perjury referral against Secretary Clinton.  Today, we received a letter from the FBI confirming that not one of the emails Secretary Clinton received was properly marked classified.  All Republicans have to do is read the FBI’s letter to understand this, but they want a ‘do-over’ because they do not like the FBI’s answer.  It is clear that Secretary Clinton was telling the truth based on the facts she had at the time, and this Republican perjury referral is making a mockery out of congressional authority and trivializing our procedures for political purposes.”
