FBI Director James Comey outraged the nation this week when he announced that he would not be changing his decision that Hilary Clinton should not be charged for her use of a personal email server. She may not be our president, but she still needs to be held accountable for her actions.
Republicans and Democrats alike are angry with Comey for his handling of the case, and pressure is one for him to explain his actions over the last two weeks. The reopening of the case raised serious questions, and its second closing sparked even more.
On Sunday, Senator Al Franken called for Comey to stand before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He was backed up by fellow Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein.
“I think there should be hearings, and I’m certain there will be hearings in the Judiciary Committee on this matter,” Franken said on CNN. “We will have hearings. I’m sure that FBI Director Comey will be before us. I think he should be able to answer questions about this, and he should be able to control the FBI.”
“I believe the Justice Department needs to take a look at its procedures to prevent similar actions that could influence future elections,” Feinstein commented.
