Congressman Turner released the following statement after hand delivering a letter to FBI Director James Comey requesting an explanation of the FBI’s procedures for processing documents and disseminating information to the public during Federal holidays and how those procedures could be improved to reduce the appearance of political motivations:

“Despite Director Comey’s assertions that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton was apolitical, the Bureau continues to release information on Federal Holiday weekends. The fact that these releases coincide with holidays and weekends raises the question of whether the FBI is playing politics in releasing information to the American public.”
