Rep. Mark Meadows said Thursday there's a growing body of evidence to suggest that former FBI Director James Comey lied when he told Congress that the FBI and the Justice Department were not coordinating on the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
Meadows, R-N.C., said on Fox News that his staff has more texts between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that show signs of coordination.
"We know because we have a number of documents, a growing body of evidence," to suggest Comey may have lied about that coordination. "Not only was that false, but we know that over and over again now, we have emails that would suggest that that testimony was false and at best misled the American public, at worst was lying to Congress," he said.
"And here we are today with emails, text messages, that says that even the 'no coordination' message that Director Comey put out on that infamous day in July was actually suggested by the Department of Justice," Meadows added.
Comey said in July 2016 that there was no coordination between the FBI and the Justice Department. But Fox News host Brian Kilmeade read out one of the texts from Strzok to Page that said the timing of Comey's announcement "looks like hell" and "will appear choreographed."
Meadows said that text is interesting, but said there are others as well.
"There's even another email from the Department of Justice that would indicate ... on how to articulate the exoneration of Hillary Clinton," Meadows said.
He said the emails also suggest that the Department of Justice suggested edits to some of the FBI's work.
