RELEASE: Fitzpatrick Statement on FBI’s Reopening of Clinton Email Case
DOYLESTOWN, PA – Brian Fitzpatrick, former FBI special agent and federal prosecutor, released the following statement Friday regarding news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would be reopening their investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails and private server:
“I applaud the FBI and Director Comey for their commitment to seeking the truth for the American people and reopening this important investigation in light of new information. One thing is clear: this was more than a ‘mistake‘ as my opponent, Steve Santarsiero, has called it in an effort to downplay the situation for political gain while repeatedly refusing to criticize Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified documents. As Americans, we deserve the facts regarding this case against Secretary Clinton because of its importance, not only to this election, but to our national security.
As an agent with the Bureau, I put the pursuit of truth and defense of our country before all else, including partisan politics. That’s the standard I’ll take with me to Congress, and I’ll never be afraid of taking an independent stand.”
