Rep. Raul Labrador was confused by answers from Attorney General Loretta Lynch on security clearances when she faced a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.
The Idaho Republican repeatedly asked Lynch about the consequences for any other federal employee or regular American who “acted extremely carelessly” with classified information.
Lynch agreed with the recommendations made by FBI director James Comey that no charges were to be brought against Hillary Clinton regarding her alleged mishandling of classified information, but she continued to insist that she would not “characterize the actions” of the former secretary of state.
“I’m actually confused by your statement,” Labrador interrupted Lynch as she repeated what she was not at liberty to share.
“You want us to respect Director Comey’s conclusion but not his words?” he asked. “You can’t even tell us if one of your employees carelessly used information, whether you would advance them in their career or not.”
