Cummings Issues Statement on Desperate  Republican Efforts to Attack Clinton


Washington, DC (July 11, 2016)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, issued the following statement in response to desperate Republican efforts to attack Secretary Hillary Clinton:

“Republicans are so frustrated with the FBI’s unanimous decision that they are now completely unloading on Secretary Clinton with everything they’ve got—right before the presidential conventions.  They are spending their final days here in Washington climbing all over each other, collecting hundreds of signatures for their partisan letter attacking the FBI Director for doing his job, sending a so-called ‘criminal referral’ devoid of any actual facts, and demanding access to the FBI’s entire investigative file.  There is absolutely no credible evidence that anyone at the FBI did anything wrong in this investigation, that they pulled any punches, or that they were improperly influenced by anyone outside the agency.  Republicans are now squandering even more taxpayer dollars in a desperate attempt to keep this issue alive and bring down Secretary Clinton’s poll numbers ahead of the election.”
