Millions of Americans were furious last week when the FBI announced that they would not be charging Hillary Clinton with any crime. Though Clinton thought she was officially out of the woods with this announcement, she just learned that she was sadly mistaken.
According to IJ Review, House Republicans are now pushing for Clinton to be charged with lying before Congress after 60% of Americans let it be known that they think she should be in prison. Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to the U.S. Attorney’s office calling on them to investigate Clinton’s sworn testimony before Congress.
Here is their full letter to U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips demanding that Clinton be charged with perjury:
Dear Mr. Phillips:
We write to request an investigation to determine whether Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton committed perjury and made false statements during her testimony under oath before congressional committees.
While testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on July 7, 2016, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey stated the truthfulness of Secretary’s testimony before Congress was not within the scope of the FBI’s investigation. Nor had the FBI even considered any of Secretary Clinton’s testimony.
Director Comey further testified the Department of Justice requires a criminal referral from Congress to initiate an investigation of Secretary Clinton’s congressional testimony. We are writing for that purpose.
The evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony.
In light of those contradictions, the Department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

This came after FBI Director James Comey admitted that statements made by Clinton under oath were “not true,” and that her handling of classified material was “extremely careless.”
