As you’re probably aware at this point, Congress ordered FBI Director James Comey to testify before the House Oversight Committee earlier today in regards to the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges for current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. [Scroll Down For Video]
Well, in one of the best exchanges of Comey’s entire testimony he was questioned by Rep. Trey Gowdy on how many times Clinton lied to the American people and congress about her email habits.
Comey reluctantly had to admit that Clinton lied about numerous issues regarding her handling of classified emails.
Check out the video below and see how Gowdy expertly got Comey to admit that Hillary lied no fewer than four times. He does it in the span of around one minute.
Pundits and political analysts took to Twitter to voice their overwhelming support for Gowdy:
Gowdy brought his "A" game here. This is devastating.

Gowdy questioning of Comey much more clinical/effective: All the ways Clinton's public statements are at odds with what FBI found.

Gowdy is asking very direct questions that Comey is having difficulty answering https://t.co/l4oFxLCHlJ

Here is the full video of the exchange:
Comey announced earlier this week that the FBI was recommending no charges be brought against Clinton despite the fact that she obviously mishandled numerous classified documents on her private email server.
According to an Associated Press report:
Comey said that although the investigation found “extremely careless” behavior by Clinton and her staff in their handling of sensitive information, the FBI had concluded that “no charges are appropriate.” He said the agency believed that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
According to the FBI’s notes, 110 of the emails they reviewed contained information that was classified at the time. Eight of those emails were flagged as being “Top Secret,” one of the highest levels of government classification.
