Why Wasn't Clinton Indicted? Because the FBI Never Asked Her About 'Intent' in Email Probe, Says Gowdy
FBI agents never asked Hillary Clinton about the intentions behind her mishandling of classified information, despite the fact that FBI Director James Comey said he declined to recommend charges against her because he found no evidence she intentionally thwarted the law, Rep. Trey Gowdy said.
"I didn't see any questions on the issue of intent," the South Carolina Republican said Thursday during an appearance on Fox News. "[Comey] said he didn't go forward with charges because she didn't have specific criminal intent."
"I didn't see the followup questions in the summary I read," Gowdy added.
The House Oversight Committee member was referring to classified notes from the FBI's July interview with Clinton, which was conducted just days before the bureau moved to conclude its year-long investigation of her private email use without recommending an indictment for anyone involved. Gowdy said he saw no reason why the summary should be considered classified.
