St. Augustine, FL – In response to President Barack Obama’s assertion on Fox News Sunday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “has not jeopardized America’s national security” through her use of an unsecured e-mail server, Rep. DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement:

“There is an ongoing FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information, yet on Fox News Sunday, President Obama said that Clinton ‘has not jeopardized America’s national security’ by mishandling classified information. What does the President know that we do not? If it's an ongoing investigation and the White House isn't involved then how could he know this? Or is the administration's preferred result – that Hillary Clinton is given a free pass – already baked in the cake?”

Obama has previously commented on the ongoing investigation into Clinton’s server, telling CBS news in October 2015, “I don’t think it posed a national security problem.”
