Trey Gowdy: FBI Didn't Ask Clinton Enough Questions

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., appeared on Fox News' "The Kelly File" Wednesday to decry the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, specifically why she wasn't asked more about what her intentions were in using the set up.

"I looked to see what witnesses were questioned on the issue of intent, including her. I didn't see that many questions on that issue," Gowdy said, regarding a classified briefing report on the investigation supplied by the FBI. 

Gowdy and other Republicans were disappointed when FBI Director James Comey announced that he wouldn't recommend bringing criminal charges against Clinton, despite the fact that he said her use of a non-government email server was "extremely careless," reports The Hill.

Why the FBI classified the briefing materials, keeping them secret, also raised questions from Gowdy.

"There's no reason in the world you could not and should not be able to look at the same witness interviews that I had to go to Washington and look at in a classified setting," Gowdy said.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, addressed a letter to Comey requesting additional information about Clinton's email server, and asking that the FBI create an unclassified version of the investigation briefing for public consumption.

"What we're asking the FBI in a letter today to do is create an unclassified version and then release that to the public," Chaffetz said, appearing Monday on Fox News. "Let's go ahead and get that out there sooner rather than later."

During an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Chaffetz outlined his problems with the documents that the FBI gave to his committee:

"Hillary Clinton is out there saying there's not very much sensitive information in there, that she didn't trade in sensitive classified information. It's so sensitive and so classified that even I, as the chairman of the Oversight Committee, don't have the high level of clearance to see what's in those materials," Chaffetz said, Politico reports. "I think the documents are overly classified."

Clinton's campaign is also asking for a public release of the "full set of materials" to avoid selective leaks intended to damage her drive for the White House, according to the Hill.
