Representative Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) issued the following statement on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices:

“This morning, FBI Director James Comey confirmed what many Americans already believed to be true: that Hillary Clinton lied about sending and receiving classified information from her unsecure home servers.  In August, Secretary Clinton said ‘this process (the FBI investigation) will prove that I never sent or received any e-mail that was marked classified.’ We now know the truth.

“Director Comey described Hillary Clinton’s actions as ‘extremely careless.’ He said her actions violated the law in that she knowingly and willfully mishandled classified information, and that it was ‘possible hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s account’ while she traveled abroad.

“It has now been confirmed for the American people, and the world, how reckless Hillary Clinton was with sensitive national security information – putting her own personal needs for secrecy above national security.  The FBI has now fully exposed her deceit.   In my view, she has disqualified herself from being able to serve as our Commander-in-Chief.”
