House Committee Releases Video Showing Clinton Contradictions

August 16, 2016

The U.S. House oversight committee released a video on Monday showing Hillary Clinton’s many inconsistencies from her testimony about her private email server.

The video titled "Were Hillary Clinton's Statements False?" cuts back and forth between statements from Clinton and FBI Director James Comey, who led the investigation into Clinton’s private server.

One segment shows Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) questioning Clinton about how her lawyers searched for work-related emails from when she was secretary of state.

"I'm asking how it was done. Did someone physically look at the 62,000 emails or did you use search terms, date parameters?" Jordan said. "I want to know the specifics."

"They did all of that. They also went through every single email," Clinton said.

The video cuts to what Comey had to say on the matter.

"Lawyers doing the sorting for Secretary Clinton in 2014 did not individually read the content of all of her emails as we did for those available to us. Instead, they relied on header information and they used search terms to try to find all work-related emails among the reportedly more than 60,000 that were remaining on her system at the end of 2014," Comey said. "It's highly likely that their search missed some work-related emails and that we later found them, for example in the mailboxes of other officials or in the slack space of a server."

Additionally, the video showed that Clinton's statements that she had only one server and turned over all of her emails to the State Department were contradicted by Comey’s testimony.

Congressional Republicans have referred Clinton’s testimony to the Department of Justice to investigate whether she committed perjury.
