Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook admitted on Fox News Sunday that Clinton lied when she claimed FBI Director James Comey’s letter about the reopening of its probe into her private server was sent solely to House Republicans.
Comey’s stunning letter Friday stated that “pertinent” emails regarding the private server investigation surfaced during a separate inquiry. Later reporting revealed that separate investigation was into former congressman Anthony Weiner’s sexting with a 15-year-old girl. Weiner is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Comey sent his letter to Republican House committee chairmen but it was also carbon-copied to leading Democrats on those committees. However, Clinton said it was sent originally just to Republicans, suggesting Comey’s actions were partisan.
