During the House oversight hearing with FBI Director James Comey on Thursday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) suggested that the FBI launch an investigation into the people who sent classified information to Hillary Clinton over email.
Comey told Massie that in some of the cases where classified information wound up on Clinton’s private server, staff had forwarded the information in a chain of emails until it eventually reached Clinton herself.
Massie then asked if “someone down the chain” was being investigated by the FBI, arguing that the staff member may have known they were sending classified information. Comey noted that the FBI is not currently investigating any such person.
“I would suggest maybe you might want to do that,” Massie told Comey.
