Former FBI Director, James Comey, may have given some conflicting statements regarding the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal. During various interviews and statements made by the former Director, there is some confusion about whether or not he had prejudged the Clinton case before the investigation was completed.

Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, added to those calls on Monday, saying Comey “absolutely” should be brought back to testify.
“The American people rightfully have enormous concerns about the manner in which the Clinton email investigation was conducted,” he told Fox News in a written statement. “Recent reports suggesting the outcome of the investigation was predetermined only heighten these concerns.” …….
