Members of the House Judiciary Committee are set to question FBI officials next month about allegations of perjury involving Hillary Clinton's conflicting statements to Congress last year.

Witnesses at the hearing could include FBI Director James Comey, according to USA Today, which first reported the panel's plans.

A Judiciary Committee spokeswoman confirmed the hearing to the Washington Examiner and said lawmakers plan to approach the issue at an FBI oversight hearing the panel holds each year.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, joined Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, in a push to outline the case against Clinton earlier this week.

Goodlatte and Chaffetz detailed four of the Democratic nominee's assertions that clashed with evidence Comey revealed to the oversight panel last month, including her insistence that no material marked classified had passed through her network.

Comey testified that his agents had recovered at least three emails bearing classification markings from the multiple devices Clinton used to communicate while serving as secretary of state.

The hearing comes as the Oversight Committee looks into the FBI's decision to clear Clinton and her staff of all criminal wrongdoing after a year-long probe into their private email use. FBI agents provided Chaffetz's staff with access to classified documents from their closed investigative file this week.

However, Chaffetz said Wednesday that many of the records were so highly classified that he could not view them with his current security clearance.

Congressional Republicans have remained skeptical of the outcome of Clinton's case given the "extreme carelessness" with which she handled sensitive material, according to the FBI's findings.

But Democrats maintain that the perjury case has little chance of succeeding.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, ranking Democrat on the Oversight Committee, called the perjury referral "frivolous."

"It is clear that Secretary Clinton was telling the truth based on the facts she had at the time, and this Republican perjury referral is making a mockery out of congressional authority and trivializing our procedures for political purposes," Cummings said.
