Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum that Hillary Clinton lied during her Benghazi testimony last year and that perjury charges may be forthcoming.
“She didn’t tell the American people the truth about her system,” Pompeo claimed. “She said she didn’t send classified information. We now, of course, know that she did. She said her lawyers reviewed every document. That, of course, we now know she did not do. We’ll be looking at that closely, and we will share with the American people just about everything we can.”

MacCallum asked Pompeo if he was willing to go down the path of perjury proceedings.
Pompeo said he was willing to go down that path and that everyone testifying before Congress should be held to the same standard.
“I hope that the Justice Department and the FBI will do that. I think when they do, I think when they review the entirety of the files, that they will too conclude that there were intentional misstatements made to the American public and to Congress, and that she’ll be treated just like you and I would” Pompeo said.
