Aderholt Statement on New FBI Probe into Hillary Clinton’s Private Email Server

October 28, 2016
Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) today released the following statement in regard to the news the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.


“I was not surprised to learn that the FBI has launched a new investigation into the private server of Secretary Clinton.  Clinton has repeatedly put her own need for secrecy ahead of protecting our own national secrets.


“Director Comey made the correct decision to reopen this case without regard to the current political environment.  Doing what is right should never take a backseat to whether an election is 11 days away or 111 days away.


In Washington, Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
