Two House committees sent a letter to the Department of Justice Monday laying out their case for why they believe Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton committed perjury during a hearing in Congress last year.

The letter said Clinton made several false statements during her testimony to the House Select Committee on Benghazi on October 22, 2015.
