During a back-and-forth between Rep. Trey Gowdy and James Comey on Thursday, the FBI director confirmed that Hillary Clinton lied multiple times about her email and server use.
During a hearing in front of the House Oversight Committee Gowdy questioned Comey saying, “Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received any classified information over her private email. Was that true?” (VIDEO: Congress To Ask FBI To Investigate Hillary For Lying Under Oath)
“Our investigation found that there was classified information” discovered,” Comey replied.
Gowdy followed up, “Secretary Clinton said there was not anything marked classified on her emails, either sent or received. Was that true?”
“That’s not true,” Comey replied. “There were a small number of portion markings on, I think, three of the documents.”
Secretary Clinton said, I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material,” Gowdy said. “Was that was true?”
“There was classified material emailed,” Comey responded.
“Secretary Clinton said she used just one device,” Gowdy said. “Was that true?
According to Comey, Clinton “used multiple devices during the four years of her term as secretary of state.”
“Secretary Clinton said all work-related emails were returned to the State Department,” Gowdy said. “Was that true?”
“No. We found work-related emails, thousands that were not returned,” Comey said.
“Secretary Clinton said neither she nor anyone else deleted work-related emails from her personal account,” Gowdy said. “Was that true?”
“That’s a harder one to answer,” Comey answered. “We found traces of work-related emails on devices or in slack space. Whether they were deleted or a server was changed out something happened to them. There’s no doubt that the work-related emails that were removed electronically from the email system.”
“Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the emails and were overly inclusive,” Gowdy said. “Did her lawyers read the email content individually?”
“No,” Comey replied.
