ABC News reports:
FBI Director James Comey will be facing skeptical and angry Congressional Republicans this morning in a hastily called hearing on Capitol Hill. The criminal case against Hillary Clinton and her aides is closed, but top Republicans want to know why she was not prosecuted for mishandling classified information while using a private email server as Secretary of State.
“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz said in a statement announcing today’s hearing. “The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable.” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the decision looked like “preferential treatment for Clinton.”
