Port Orange, FL – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the followed statement concerning reports that the Department of Justice declined an FBI request to investigate the relationship between the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s State Department:

“The Clinton Foundation previously failed to disclose millions in foreign donations during Clinton’s time as Secretary of State and now e-mails have surfaced showing Foundation employees peddling influence with the State Department. Yet Loretta Lynch and her Department of Justice nixed the FBI from investigating what appears to be a serious breach of the public trust. Once again Lynch has demonstrated her contempt for the American people by prioritizing politics over the pursuit of justice.”
