There are still many unanswered questions about Hillary Clinton's emails, even after a closed door meeting between the House Intelligence Committee and FBI Director James Comey, Rep. Mike Pompeo said Thursday.

"He answered all our questions as best he could," the Kansas Republican, a committee member, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" host Martha MacCallum about the meeting, held on Wednesday. "He was polite and made a vigorous defense for the outcome the FBI had with respect to Secretary Clinton's emails."

But still, there are many unanswered questions, and there is an obligation to be transparent, Pompeo said, so "we can understand how government makes decisions and arrives to conclusions."

There remain important questions about how the FBI investigation of Clinton took place, and "questions still about Secretary Clinton's email server that the American people deserve answers to," said Pompeo.

Further, the Kansas Republican said, there is "no doubt" that Clinton failed to guard state secrets while using the private email server, located in her New York home.

"There is no doubt about that," said Pompeo. "There was, in my judgment, clear intent to put classified information in a place it did not belong."

She didn't just use the private account for a day or a week, said Pompeo, but for "months and months."

"Even after she leaves government service she continues to store that classified information," he said. She also allowed people who worked for her, but who didn't have proper security clearance, access to the server, he complained.

"I understand why the American people are frustrated," said the congressman. "I am, too. I don't understand how you cannot see intent with respect to the mishandling of classified information by Secretary Clinton."

Pompeo also commented on the attitudes of Bill and Hillary Clinton about the emails, saying they make jokes about a serious issue.

"The Clintons think often that if they are not convicted they are not guilty and didn't do anything wrong," said Pompeo. "I think the American people get that. They see how untrustworthy she was, the lies she told. We know those are lies. To see former President Clinton laugh about that is a disservice to the American people."

Meanwhile, when notes were released concerning the FBI's questioning session of Clinton, they were redacted, but Pompeo said there's no question that all the information is needed.

"They provided a great deal of information, often more than they do in criminal investigations," said Pompeo. "This was a unique investigation. This is how we'll continue to have trust in the FBI. I have enormous respect for Director Comey. In this case, we need all the answers so we can restore the trust in the FBI."
