In an interview with Yahoo News Guest Anchor Paul Beban, Jordan said he felt Comey didn't adequately consider Clinton's earlier testimony in his decision to recommend the presumptive Democratic nominee not be prosecuted for conduct related to her use of private email servers for official State Department business. "We don't want to put people in jail unless we prove that they knew they were doing something they shouldn't do".
Hillary Clinton has responded to the FBI's scathing assessment that she was "extremely careless" with classified government secrets, by shifting the blame onto her former colleagues at the US State Department. Comey said his team found no evidence that Clinton lied under oath or broke the law by discussing classified information in an unclassified setting.
But Comey said that while the FBI's year-long investigation turned up "evidence of great carelessness", he stood by his decision not to recommend prosecution. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Wednesday accepted Mr Comey's recommendation that no criminal charges were warranted and closed the case.
Many of Clinton's political critics have suggested that her use of private email servers could have endangered national security by exposing classified information to potential hacking.
Chaffetz said lawmakers would now ask the FBI to investigate whether Clinton lied to the committee.
"They, I believe, did not believe they were sending any material that was classified, they were pursuing their responsibilities", she said in an interview with MSNBC.
Under oath, Clinton testified last October that she never sent or received emails marked as classified when she served as secretary of state. Her server was so poorly secured the Federal Bureau of Investigation could not eliminate the possibility it had not been hacked by the country's enemies, Comey said.
Comey pointed out that Petraeus not only shared the classified information, but also hid the documents in his attic and then lied to investigators.
Donald Trump is going there to meet with House and Senate Republicans and FBI Director James Comey will answer questions for the first time about Hillary Clinton's private e-mail servers. Eight of those email chains had top secret information.
"The fact of the matter is that according to Comey's comments, in the past people who've done similar things, but not even to this magnitude, have seen their clearance suspended or revoked temporarily", Scott told McClatchy, calling the legislation a "realistic response" to a situation that should have consequences.
During the course of the hearing, former Gen. David Petraeus' name came up a few times.
"Hillary Clinton can't keep her emails safe, and you know what, folks, she sure as hell can't keep our country safe", Trump told a recent rally in Raleigh, North Carolina, charging that the investigation was "rigged" in Clinton's favor.
Under an onslaught of Republican criticism, Comey vigorously defended the government's decision and rejected GOP accusations that the presidential candidate was given special treatment.
Though Comey kept a relatively clam demeanor throughout the 4.5 hours of scrutiny, he revealed at one point that the Clinton Foundation might now be under investigation as well.
