Comey: Hillary Shared Classified Info with People Who Didn't Have Required Clearance
Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge just highlighted an extraordinary statement by FBI Director James Comey.
Comey, testifying before a House committee, said that Hillary Clinton shared classified information with people who did not have the necessary security clearance to see it.
Herridge said it's common knowledge among those who hold a security clearance that you cannot share classified information with someone who does not have a "need to know and doesn't have a security clearance at the appropriate level."
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) asked at the end of the hearing about classified emails sent from Clinton to her attorneys.
"Did Hillary Clinton give non-cleared people access to classified information," he asked.
"Yes," said Comey, adding that there would be no consequences for Clinton's lawyers or aides who viewed classified information without the proper security clearance.
Chaffetz is expected to make a formal referral to the FBI, asking for a perjury investigation of Clinton's past statements to Congress under oath.

Heather Nauert then talked to Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), a former CIA officer who had some tough questions for Comey at the hearing.
Hurd expressed concern that many of his Democratic colleagues, based on their questions to Comey, "don't understand how classified information should be handled."
