Secured areas of the Capitol have revealed a little treasure trove, Hillary’s FBI docs. The coveted papers are being reviewed by law makers and select committees. What do you think they will discover?
FBI documents about the agency’s investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state were being reviewed on Wednesday in secure rooms of the U.S. Capitol.
Lawmakers and select staff from some congressional committees could page through the material, parts of which are redacted, in large binders labeled “secret” that the Federal Bureau of Investigation turned over to Congress on Tuesday.
Republican lawmakers requested the information last month after the FBI recommended no criminal charges against Clinton.
“Last I heard, my colleagues had their turn with the documents at 1:30 p.m.,” said a Senate Judiciary committee aide. “There’s only one set of documents for all the interested Senate committees, as I understand it.”
She said those viewing the material were allowed to take notes. But if notes were taken on the classified parts, those notes had to be left in the secure area with the documents.
Clinton has been dogged for more than a year by questions about her use of a private email account while she was the nation’s top diplomat from 2009 to 2013.
Republicans have repeatedly hammered Clinton over the issue, helping to drive opinion poll results showing that many U.S. voters doubt her trustworthiness. She faces Republican nominee Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election.
The FBI said on Tuesday it had provided “relevant materials” to congressional committees looking into the matter.
