GOP Rep Gaetz: ‘We Now Have Evidence’ FBI Investigation of Hillary ‘Did Not Follow Normal and Standard Procedures’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said evidence had been uncovered showing that the FBI gave the investigation of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s improper use of an unauthorized email server while secretary of state a “special status.”

According to the Florida Republican, who is also a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the process afforded to Clinton was different than it would have been for “any other American.”

“We now have evidence that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton did not follow normal and standard procedures,” he said. “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.”

“Combine that with the fact that Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the James Comey to call this ‘a matter’ and not an investigation,” he continued. “That she met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac and that James Comey himself has admitted in testimony that he drafted the exoneration statement of Hillary Clinton before even interviewing her or other key witnesses. We seem to have a departure from the normal application of the law. And 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.”
