FBI Director James Comey testified on Capitol Hill Thursday in front of the House Oversight Committee, where he told members he was following the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server “very closely.”
“The FBI is working on a referral given to us by inspectors general in connection with former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server,” Comey said.
“As you also know about the FBI, we don’t talk about our investigations while we are doing them. This is one I am following very closely and get briefed on regularly. I’m confident we have the people and resources to do it in the way I believe we do all our work, which is promptly, professionally, and independently.”
At the center of the investigation is whether Clinton’s use of a private email server compromised sensitive information and put national security at risk.
