Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received any classified information over her private email. Was that true?
Comey: Our investigation found that there was classified information sent.
Gowdy: So it was not true?
Comey: That’s what I said.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails either sent or received. Was that true?
Comey: That’s not true. There were a small number of portion markings on, I think, three of the documents.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” Was that true?
Comey: There was classified material emailed.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true?
Comey: She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as Secretary of State.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said all work-related emails were returned to the State Department. Was that true?
Comey: No. We found work-related emails, thousands that were not returned.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said neither she nor anyone else deleted work related emails from her personal account. Was that true?
Comey: That’s a harder one to answer. We found traces of work related emails on devices or in slack space. Whether they were deleted or whether when a server was changed out something happened to them, there’s no doubt there were work related emails that were removed electronically from the email system.
Gowdy: Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the emails and were “overly inclusive’. Did her lawyers read the email content individually?
Just this moment Comey ‘cleared-up’ what he meant. “Technically sophisticated”…

It won’t take much effort for the House to produce a referral on the perjury question. The House has a large enough Republican majority to muscle that through. The Department of Justice may or may not be able to tell the FBI to stand down from such a probe. If the DoJ did quash such an inquiry, there might be a political price to pay.
FBI Dir Comey will not comment when asked if there's an investigation into the Clinton Foundation & won't say if it was part of this probe

Uh-huh … Hence the speculations that Hillary Clinton was ‘quid pro quo’ wheeling and dealing for foreign funds to the foundation in future promises for ‘favors’ should she make it back into the white House.
*** Mic-drop #2: BRAVO! Texas congressman obliterates FBI director’s take on Hillary’s server

Dir. Comey, knowing the importance and high profile of this investigation DID NOT even attend Saturday’s interview with Clinton, and he has not even spoken with all those FBI agents who were there … AND Hillary was not sworn in under oath for the questioning!!! All this made its way out of the minutia in today’s Comey hearing before Congress. Unfuckingbelievable!!!
The American public will not be able to read a transcript of Hillary Clinton’s recent interview with the FBI because the bureau did not transcribe it, FBI Director James Comey told Congress on Thursday.
Clinton was also not placed under oath during the interview, which was conducted Saturday at FBI headquarters. The three-and-a-half hour session was also not recorded, Comey told Florida Rep. John Mica during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.
Instead, FBI investigators recorded an FD-302, a document that summarizes statements given during an interrogation.
The news that Clinton’s interview was not recorded or transcribed came as a surprise to Mica. And when told that Clinton was not placed under oath, the Republican responded “well, that’s a problem.”
… He told Mica that he did not personally interview Clinton on Saturday. Five or six agents were present during the grilling.
“FBI director James Comey admitted to the House Oversight Committee on Thursday that he had not checked whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had lied to the FBI the same way that she lied to Congress and the public about her emails.”
No Security Clearance to even be near Hillary’s emails:
And these are the people who oversaw the deletion of alleged ‘personal’ emails after the Congress said they were all to be turned into them. AND Hillary’s lawyers and staff cleaned their devices in such a way so as not to be able to recover the deletions.
Dear God, Comey admits under oath her attorneys scrubbed devices in a way to prevent forensic recovery.. Astounding

Despite statements 2 contrary, Clinton sent/received Top Secret info through her unclassified email server – yet FBI sees no case. Travesty.

LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS: My latest Observer essay. World War II’s sobering rhyme “Loose Lips Sink Ships” reminded America that failure to protect national security secrets exacted a harsh price in blood. Even minimal negligence—much less the gross negligence exhibited by Hillary Clinton—could provide an enemy enough information to damage the U.S. and allied war effort and kill American servicemen and women.
This essay builds on Comey’s sellout.
