North Georgia Congressman Collins joins others in criticism of FBI ruling on Clinton emails

By AccessWDUN staff

Congressman Doug Collins of Gainesville is calling the FBI Director to reverse his decision to not file criminal charges in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Collins joined other Republican leaders in expressing his discontent over James Comey's ruling.

“In the United States, no one is above the law. Unfortunately, the FBI’s announcement today that indicates that Secretary Clinton is receiving special treatment due to political pressures. Secretary Clinton’s actions were irresponsible and reckless and jeopardize our national security. If another government official did the same thing, they would be charged and thrown in jail," Collins said in a prepared statement. 

Collins said the decision showed the current Administration has become more politicized.

"Secretary Clinton has become untouchable even to the highest levels of law enforcement," Collins stated further.

"As Americans, we must hold our public officials to the highest standards, and they certainly must be held accountable for illegal activities and wrongdoing. No amount of sidestepping and political maneuvering should buy Secretary Clinton any more time. I call on FBI Director James Comey to reverse his decision, and for justice to be served. No one—even a former Secretary of State—should be allowed to get away with these dangerous and irresponsible actions."
