27. Because he told them something under oath that might well be no longer true.

Namely, that the FBI had secured all the repositories of emails that contained classified info.

By law, the FBI does have this responsibility. Congress has the constitutional power and duty of oversight. So when Congress has officially requested information from the FBI on this topic, a failure to correct the record would infuriate Congressional leaders and might be grounds for deposition.

The FBI is going to look through these emails to see if any of them have classified email, and if so, secure them and trace any possible leaks. That's why the unrelated investigation is important.
