Chaffetz won’t stop until he gets answers.
House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) told The Washington Post that his committee has “years” of investigation material on Hillary Clinton, even after the presidential election:
“It’s a target-rich environment,” the Republican said in an interview in Salt Lake City’s suburbs. “Even before we get to Day One, we’ve got two years’ worth of material already lined up. She has four years of history at the State Department, and it ain’t good.”
Chaffetz and his committee has led the charge over Hillary’s email scandal and he does not plan on stopping even if she wins the election:
“She’s not getting a clean slate,” he said. “It’s not like the State Department was bending over backwards to help us understand what was going on. We’ve got document destruction. We’ve got their own rogue system. We’ve got classified information out the door. We’ve got their foundation doing who knows what. I mean, it took them four years just to release her schedule.”
“We still have tens of thousands of missing documents,” he said. “That ranges from everything from the missing boxes [of subpoenaed emails] to the David Petraeus emails, to [State Department Undersecretary] Patrick Kennedy’s communications.”
After a year long investigation, the FBI decided not to recommend charges against Hillary or her aides even though agents admits the group was careless with classified information. But Director James Comey’s explanation left more questions than answers so Chaffetz asked the FBI for its notes notes and the classified information agents received.
The FBI released its notes from the email investigation showed that her aides destroyed a few of her BlackBerry devices with a hammer and no one can find the Archive Laptop with 902 emails. Another person, who the FBI did not identify, told agents that he/she “deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from the PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported.”
In September, Chaffetz asked the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia to review the email case against Hillary because evidence “may amount to obstruction of justice and destruction of evidence.”
But Chaffetz also said that the investigations may expand farther than the emails:
He had sent the committee’s investigators a weekend article from the Wall Street Journal that asked whether Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) had slanted the FBI’s probe of Clinton by helping outside groups put $467,500 into the campaign of Virginia senate candidate Jill McCabe, whose husband, Andrew, later became deputy director of the FBI.
“It seems like an obscene amount of money for a losing race,” Chaffetz said. “The ties between the governor and the Clintons are well-known. He raises money for a lot of people, but why so much for this one person?”
