WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement in response to the Department of Justice’s decision not to pursue charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the mishandling of classified information.


“Secretary Clinton broke the law and lied about it.

“Despite overwhelming evidence, the Department of Justice chose not to pursue the case against Clinton. I say political elites like the Clintons should not get special treatment, period.

“Even if she’s not prosecuted, her ‘extremely careless’ handling of highly classified information, which likely got into enemy hands, is disgraceful.

“Nobody should be above the law, and the facts about Secretary Clinton’s unlawful activity raise more serious questions, and the American people deserve answers.”
