Should the FBI not recommend an indictment of Hillary Clinton following its investigation of the setup of her private email server, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) on Monday said he and his Republican colleagues would “probably” accept the outcome.

“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.”

Comey, Chaffetz continued, went before the House Judiciary Committee of which he is a member and said he “looks at this daily.”

“His 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,” Chaffetz said. “We’ll see where that goes.”

Chaffetz noted reports about the ongoing investigation, adding that he thinks it is “imperative that they get it done sooner than later.”
