Senator Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today made the following statement regarding reports that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has turned over her private email server and thumb drives containing copies of emails that were stored on the server to the Justice Department:

"It's a welcome development, but it's hard to believe that the Clinton private server and the thumb drives in the possession of Ms. Clinton's personal lawyer have just recently been turned over to the authorities.  That's a long time for top secret classified information to be held by an unauthorized person outside of an approved, secure government facility.  I look forward to the FBI answering my questions so the American people can be assured that everything has been done to protect our national security interests and hold accountable anyone who broke the rules.”
