Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) during the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee hearing with FBI Director James Comey today got Comey to confirm that Hillary Clinton had repeatedly lied about her private email use.

They went through them one-by-one, read the transcript below. This is bad. Even CNN and MSNBC are acknowledging this looks extremely bad for Clinton.

Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC): “Secretary Clinton said she never sent or received classified information over her private e-mail. Was that true?”

FBI Director James Comey: “Our investigation found…”

Gowdy: “So it was not true”?

Comey: “That’s what I said.”

Gowdy: “Okay. Well, I’m looking for a shorter answer so you and I are not here quite as long. Secretary Clinton said there was not anything marked…”

Comey: “That’s not true. There were a small number of portion markings on I think three of the documents.”

Gowdy: “Secretary Clinton said ‘I did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail, there is no classified material.’ That was true?”

Comey: “There was classified e-mail.” GOWDY: “Secretary Clinton said she used just one device. Was that true?”

Comey: “She used multiple devices during the four years of her term as Secretary of State.”

Gowdy: “Secretary Clinton said all work-related e-mails were returned to the State Department.”

Comey: “No.”

Gowdy: “Was that true?”

Comey: “We found thousands that were not returned.”

Gowdy: “Secretary Clinton said neither she nor anyone else deleted work related e-mails from her personal account. was that true?”

Comey: “That’s a harder one to answer. We found traces of work related e-mails in — on devices or slack space. Whether they were deleted or a server was changed out something happened to them. There’s no doubt that the work related e-mails that were removed electronically from the e-mail system.”

Gowdy: “Secretary Clinton said her lawyers read every one of the e-mails and were overly inclusive. Did her lawyers read the e-mail content individually?”

Comey: “No.”
