Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) released the following statement after FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency will not recommend criminal charges for Secretary Hillary Clinton’s improper handling of classified information on a private email server:

“Based on the FBI’s findings, I am very disappointed Director Comey did not recommend that the Justice Department hold Secretary Clinton accountable for her actions,” said Congressman Lucas. “It is hard to imagine that Secretary Clinton’s use of an unsecured, private email server was anything but a conscious effort to skirt public reporting requirements. Contrary to her public statements, the FBI found several instances of classified state secrets sent to and from her email.

“Secretary Clinton is a lawyer whose experience on these matters goes all the way back to working on the Watergate Committee and she has been involved at various levels of the federal government since her husband’s election back in 1992. To suggest any ignorance or misunderstanding of the law on her part is a disservice to the American people. I look forward to hearing more from the FBI Director in the days and weeks to come. The results of the FBI’s investigation are quite clear and I believe that this is not a closed matter.”
