WASHINGTON (AP) - A group of lawmakers is objecting to what it describes as the politicizing of two ongoing reviews by government watchdogs of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's email practices.
Four Democratic senators and three House members on Thursday have sent a letter to Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough and State Department Inspector General Steve Linick. The inspectors general are conducting separate reviews of whether then-Secretary of State Clinton and her top aides mishandled sensitive information in emails that passed through a private server in her New York home.
The Democrats say the investigations should be impartial and have chided the inspectors general for past reporting errors.
Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Dianne Feinstein of California and Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Patrick Leahy of Vermont are among those who signed.
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders who won the Michigan primary, debated Hillary Clinton Wednesday night in Florida. Clinton appeared to be startled when Univision's Jorge Ramos asked her if she would drop out of the race if indicted over the handling of her email while secretary of state. Clinton said, "Oh for goodness, that is not going to happen."
