Rep. Jason Chaffetz challenged Hillary Clinton to look Americans in the eye and come clean about what really went on with her emails when she was secretary of state.
The Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight Committee told Fox News host Megyn Kelly in an exclusive interview on Wednesday’s “The Kelly File” that “right now we can’t get to that truth” despite the immunity granted to the Democratic presidential nominee and her former aides.
Chaffetz argued that the American people are interested in the ongoing probe of Clinton’s mishandling of classified information because “they’re worried Lady Justice has a little different blindfold when dealing with the Clintons.”
“If this was just a mistake,” Chaffetz said, referring to the email controversy, “why is everyone pleading the Fifth [Amendment] and getting immunity deals?”
“I want Hillary Clinton to look at the camera and tell people – there’s immunity and they’re not going to prosecute – tell Congress and tell the American people the truth,” Chaffetz said.
Earlier Wednesday, Chaffetz had grilled FBI Director James Comey on why the FBI granted immunity to Cheryl Mills, former counselor and Chief of Staff for then-Secretary of State Clinton.
Mills not only received an immunity grant from the Department of Justice in the FBI’s probe of Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, she was also given immunity in the investigation of obstruction, Chaffetz explained to Kelly.
“Nearly a year after the FBI seized computers and thumb drives from her law office–almost a year later–suddenly Cheryl Mills gets an immunity deal that protects her,” Chaffetz said.
Clearly frustrated, Chaffetz said it made “no sense” that Mills was a witness, was granted immunity and is Clinton’s attorney.
