FBI Director Comey Will Not Comment On The "Existence Or Nonexistence" Of Any Further Investigation Into Clinton Foundation


Near the end of his more-than-four-hour testimony before the House Oversight Committee regarding the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server, FBI Director James Comey declines to answer a question from committee chairman Chaffets about whether the actions of the Clinton Foundation were part of the investigation into the email server, or whether the FBI is currently conducting a separate investigation into the actions of the Foundation.

The line of questioning implies that the server might have been paid for by the Clinton Foundation.

REP. JASON CHAFFETZ: If you could help us inderstand who, precisely, is ruled out for prosecution, that would be [good]. Did you look at the Clinton foundation?

FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY: I'm not going to comment on the existence or nonexistence of any other investigations.

CHAFFETZ: Was the Clinton foundation tied into this investigation?

COMEY: I'm not going to answer that.

CHAFFETZ: The server that was set up in her home was originally set up by, you said, former president Bill Clinton.

COMEY: Correct.

CHAFFETZ: Do you know who paid for that?

COMEY: I don't, sitting here.
