The outcome of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server may have plenty of consequences for the presidential election.

But in a surprising statement Monday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said he and his fellow Republicans would “probably” accept a decision not to indict Hillary Clinton, Politico reports.

“Oh, probably, because we do believe in [FBI Director] James Comey,” the Utah Republican said during an appearance on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.” “I do think that in all of the government, he is a man of integrity and honesty.”

Chaffetz said Comey’s “finger is on the pulse of this. Nothing happens without him, and I think he is going to be the definitive person to make a determination or a recommendation.”

The FBI is completing its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state.

ABC News reports that Clinton likely will be interviewed.

The FBI has already interviewed close aides to Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for president.

“With a person like Secretary Clinton, the FBI probably assumes they are going to get one chance to interview her, not only because she is a prominent person but because she is very busy right now with the presidential campaign,” said David Deitch, a former Justice Department prosecutor. “It makes sense they would defer interviewing her until late in their investigation.”

Clinton said she look forward to the investigation being completed and said she was “more than ready to talk to anybody, anytime.”

“I hope that this is close to being wrapped up,” Clinton said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on May 8.

The Republican chairman of the House Select Committee, which is investigating the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Libya, is mincing no words about his colleagues in Congress who are speculating about the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton.

The Boston Herald reports that Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, told his colleagues to “shut up” about the case and let the FBI investigate.

“Everything I have heard about (FBI Director) Jim Comey tells me he is a straight arrow,” Gowdy said on Boston Herald Radio. “I am going to give him the room to do his investigation. He is not supposed to tell anyone what he is doing, he is not supposed to tell anyone what’s found and I wish my colleagues would shut up talking about the FBI investigation because this an executive branch entity.

“It should be a decidedly apolitical investigation and I’m convinced that’s what (Comey) wants to do,” the Republican congressman added.

The news comes after the White House confirmed Friday that 22 “top secret” emails were found on Clinton’s home server.

Clinton has denied she sent or received classified information on her personal e-mail account.

“The documents are being upgraded at the request of the intelligence community because they contain a category of top secret information,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told the Associated Press, adding the move was “not unusual.”

Hoping to recover deleted e-mails, the FBI has expanded its investigation into the security of Hilary Clinton’s use of a private server when she was secretary of state.

The Washington Post reports that the FBI has found a second private technology company that is willing to provide the bureau with data preserved from Clinton’s account.

Connecticut-based Datto Inc. helped manage Clinton’s e-mail system by providing backups.

The FBI is trying to determine whether classified information was accessed through Clinton’s private server.
