Grassley Responds To FBI Handling Of Clinton Case

Immediately following the announcement from FBI Director, James Comey that they would not be pursuing criminal prosecution of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator Chuck Grassley stated he expects to see the same treatment in other, similar situations. Grassley said the agency must be more transparent than ever in releasing information gathered in the investigation because people in a similar situations would face some sort of consequence for the same actions. He wants the public to be provided with more facts rather than just the brief summary they have been given, saying, “Even Director Comey said there should be extraordinary transparency.” Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is calling for reporting of the actual evidence in the case so the public can make educated decisions about the judgment of senior officials involved. He added, there are plenty of Freedom of Information Act and congressional requests pending that have been on hold, and now the FBI should respond fully and completely to all of these.
