FBI: Investigate Comey’s Inaccurate Senate Testimony

Target: Andre McCabe, Deputy FBI Director

Goal: Investigate James Comey’s inaccurate Senate testimony regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Before he was fired by Donald Trump, former FBI Director James Comey testified in front of Congress on the Hillary Clinton email investigation. It has since been discovered that certain findings he discussed in this testimony were inaccurate. Specifically, Comey provided new information about last year’s discovery of Huma Abedin’s (Clinton’s close aide) emails on her husband Anthony Weiner’s computer.

Comey said, “Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information… His then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him I think to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the secretary of state.” He also claimed that Abedin “forwarded hundreds and thousands of emails, some of which contain classified information.’’

Now people close to the FBI investigation are saying these statements are inaccurate. Abedin did forward emails to Weiner so he could print them out, but this was neither a regular practice, nor did the forwarded emails number in the hundred thousands. Furthermore, none of the forwarded emails were marked as classified. Information regarding this investigation was released by Comey just before the 2016 presidential election, and many believe it contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss. Add your name to the petition below to ask that the FBI investigate why Comey gave inaccurate testimony to Congress.


Dear Deputy Director McCabe,

James Comey recently provided testimony to Congress regarding the Hillary Clinton email investigation, during which time he gave inaccurate information about the nature of emails Clinton aide Huma Abedin forwarded to her former husband, Anthony Weiner.

Comey claimed that Abedin made a “regular practice” of forwarding emails to Weiner, including emails that contained classified information, and that the forwarded emails numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Since the testimony was given, sources close to the investigation have found these three claims to be inaccurate.

Despite the controversial firing of Comey by Donald Trump, the American public expects the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to be able to provide accurate and factual information about FBI investigations, especially in the setting of giving congressional testimony. Comey’s decisions regarding releasing information about the Clinton emails have been met with controversy in the past, and I ask that the false claims he made while testifying still be investigated.
