Dryden, MI – Paul Mitchell issued the following statement regarding the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton:

“Our Constitution guarantees equal justice under the law. That should mean that regardless of who you are, what position you hold, or your status in society that the law should be applied equally. Many believe that earlier this year the FBI let Hillary Clinton escape prosecution for illegal activity related to her personal email server while others have faced prosecution for similar actions.

Today, the Director of the FBI announced that the Bureau was reopening the Clinton email investigation after new email evidence came to light in an unrelated case. The FBI has a responsibility and duty to take politics, position, and status out of this investigation and simply follow the facts. Nobody is above the law and everyone must pay the consequences for their own actions, including Hillary Clinton.”

Mitchell is the Republican nominee in Michigan’s 10th Congressional District and is running to replace Congresswoman Candice Miller who is retiring at the end of the 114th Congress. For more information on the campaign, go to www.PaulMitchellforCongress.com
