FBI faces more questions on terrorism, Clinton emails next week

FBI Director James Comey will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week following reports that the agency was tipped off about the weekend terrorist attacks in New York and New Jersey.

"From San Bernardino to Orlando to the most recent terrorist attacks in New York, New Jersey, and Minnesota, the United States has experienced a rise in radical Islamic terrorism and we must ensure that the FBI has the resources needed for its counterterrorism efforts in order to thwart these heinous plots and protect Americans from harm," Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said in a statement announcing the hearing.

He said the oversight hearing will also give lawmakers another chance to ask Comey why he decided not to launch a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and mishandling of classified information.
