Millions of Americans were furious a f ew months ago when the FBI decided not to charge Hillary Clinton for her use of a personal email server during her time as Secretary of State. Now, this decision has come back to bite FBI director James Comey in a big way…
The Washington Examiner reported that Comey was issued a subpoena by the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology demanding that he hand over documents and information related to the security of the private email account and server Clinton used during her time as Secretary of State.
The subpoena was issued by committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who originally asked Comey for the documents in a Sept. 9 letter. However, he issued the subpoena this week when Comey refused to comply with his request.
Smith has teamed up with the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah in investigating Clinton’s emails to evaluate the security of classified information sent electronically in the executive branch. The committee issued a statement explaining that they are trying to determine whether changes need to be made to the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014.
In his September 9 letter to Comey, Smith slammed the FBI for not releasing enough information to answer all the questions he had about Clinton’s server. He then requested unclassified and unredacted copies of interview notes with employees of Platte River Networks, which was one of three companies the committee subpoenaed.
Smith went on to say that he feared the scope of the FBI’s investigation because the bureau could not obtain the thirteen devices and single laptop Clinton used to access her email when she led the State Department.
We can only hope that this subpoena gives us more answers about the Clinton investigation. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
