FBI Director James Comey declined to comment on a possible ongoing Clinton Foundation corruption probe during his testimony today before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Asked by Chairman Jason Chaffetz if he had “looked at the Clinton Foundation,” Comey answered, “I’m not going to comment on the existence or non-existence of any other investigations.”

Asked if the Clinton Foundation was tied into the email investigation, Comey simply said, “I’m not going to answer that.”

In January, Fox News reported: “The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible ‘intersection’ of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News.”

The possibility of an ongoing public corruption probe was reportedly one of the issues Chaffetz questioned the FBI director about after Comey’s statement on Tuesday. He was brushed off at that time, too: “I can’t tell you about that yet,” Comey told Chaffetz.
