The top Democrat in the U.S. House on Thursday said she believes Republicans are making a “mistake” politically in their pursuit of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's e-mails.

Nancy Pelosi of California said that more than any concern that Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans are asking that Clinton turn over the e-mails, at least to a third party, she is concerned this “is about a partisan investigation” and it “seems to me to be a waste of taxpayer money.”

“I think we are just going to see the ongoing attempt to investigate Hillary Clinton, be it her hair or her e-mails,” said Pelosi during a Capitol news conference. 

“I think that Hillary Clinton should not be treated any differently than any other secretary of state,” she also said.
