The House Judiciary Committee is expected to summon FBI Director James Comey next month to testify whether Hillary Clinton perjured herself before Congress in 2015, USA Today reports.

Republicans plan to explore four of Clinton's assertions that they believe contradict the FBI's findings of a probe into her private email server, USA Today reported:

  • Whether Clinton sent/received classified emails;
  • Whether Clinton's attorneys reviewed each email on her private server;
  • Whether there was more than one private server that stored State Department emails;
  • Whether she provided all of her work emails to the State Department.

Judiciary chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Virginia, and House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, maintain Clinton's sworn testimony to those issues could constitute perjury.

"Although there may be other aspects of Secretary Clinton's sworn testimony that are at odds with the FBI's findings, her testimony in those four areas bears specific scrutiny in light of the facts and evidence," the House Republicans wrote in a letter to U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips, USA Today reported.

Comey testified before the Oversight committee early in July, noting Clinton's extreme carelessness, but defending the decision that no charges would be brought against the former Secretary of State.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat of the Oversight Committee, called Republicans' latest attempt to get a different answer "frivolous."

Republicans "want a 'do-over' because they do not like the FBI's answer," Cummings told USA Today. "It is clear that Secretary Clinton was telling the truth based on the facts she had at the time, and this Republican perjury referral is making a mockery out of congressional authority and trivializing our procedures for political purposes."
