WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today about the FBI’s decision to recommend that Hillary Clinton not be prosecuted for mishandling classified information:

“According to Director Comey, the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton has revealed ‘extremely careless’ handling of classified information by Clinton and her aides, and their communications may have been intercepted by hostile actors. This sort of irresponsibility can directly jeopardize U.S. national security and put people’s lives at risk. Our military service members and intelligence professionals are often involved in dangerous operations, and they deserve to know their missions will not be imperiled by careless government officials and their derelict staff members. I hope the irresponsible handling of classified information documented by the FBI will be considered if any of these individuals currently possesses a security clearance or applies for one in the future.”
