There is evidence that the FBI's investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not follow "normal and standard" practices, and Republicans will be calling for a full review by the House Judiciary Committee of the methods that were used, Rep. Matt Gaetz said Friday.

"The current deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, sent emails just weeks before the presidential election saying that the Hillary Clinton investigation would be special, that it would be handled by a small team at headquarters, that it would be given special status," the Florida Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

When that is combined with actions such as then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting with Bill Clinton in Arizona before the election and her telling former FBI Director James Comey to call the investigation a "matter," that leads to a "departure from the normal application of the law," Gaetz said.

"We will be calling for a full review by the Judiciary Committee of the processes and procedures that potentially gave Hillary Clinton a different process and a different standard of justice than would be applied to any other American," Gaetz said.

Part of the Judiciary Committee's probe would include bringing current FBI Director Christopher Wray in to speak, said Gaetz.

"We need to have a full investigation," he added. "I believe there are others on the Judiciary Committee who are deeply troubled by the thought that Hillary Clinton would be given this special status in an investigation of potentially the mishandling of classified information."

He said he suspects in coming weeks, the committee will examine if there are checks and balances with the FBI, so "special people" aren't treated differently.

"If we didn't have a real robust investigation of Hillary Clinton, that's a real problem," he concluded.
