Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after following Director Comey’s letter to Congress yesterday:

“The abuse of the FBI is yet another disappointment in the ongoing saga of Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server. I find it difficult to believe that over 600,000 emails could be reviewed in such a short window.

“This double standard and abuse of power is disconcerting for someone who offers herself as a candidate for the highest office in the United States. 

“The Secretary’s use of a private email server to transmit classified data showed a lack of judgment that put American families at risk of attack. Any other person who behaved so recklessly with classified data would have faced severe consequences.”
