Rep. Brat (R-Va.) issued the following statement after the announcement that the FBI is going to review "pertinent" emails to the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private server:

"I am glad the FBI has chosen to review new evidence in its investigation of Hillary Clinton. The American people are desperate to see her face the consequences that any other person who mishandled classified information would face. Today's decision was a small step in returning faith in our system. No one -- no matter their last name, or how powerful or influential -- is above the law."

"Our enemies likely gained access to the classified information Clinton so recklessly placed on her home brew server, and Americans serving overseas were very likely put in jeopardy," said Rep. Brat. "This is reprehensible, and I am thankful for the work of Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and the rest of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee."

"Hillary Clinton isn't sorry for her lack of judgment and mishandling of our most sensitive information. She is only sorry for being caught. We must make sure that she experiences the same consequences for breaking the law that any other American would face."
