House Judiciary Republicans Call For Second Special Counsel To Investigate Clinton, Comey, Lynch

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are asking the Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel, this one to investigate Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Judiciary Republicans say they want a second investigator to match Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is conducting a sprawling investigation of the Trump campaign and various Trump associates.

“The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel’s investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected,” the Republicans say.

In their letter, the Republicans list 14 separate categories they say should be investigated by the additional special counsel.

They are calling for a deeper investigation of Hillary Clinton and her potential mishandling of classified information.

The Republicans are also questioning why the Justice Department did not impanel a grand jury to look into the mishandling of classified information. They also want to look into Comey’s recent claim that he was ordered by Lynch to publicly refer to the Clinton email probe as a “matter” instead of an investigation.

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee last month that he was “confused and concerned” by Lynch’s request.

Regarding Comey, the Republicans want the special counsel to look into “any and all potential leaks originated by Mr. Comey and provide to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 1993.”

Schmidt is a New York Times reporter who has broken a number of stories about the ongoing Trump-Russia probe, as well as about memos that Comey wrote after his meetings earlier this year with Trump.

After he was fired by Trump on May 9, Comey leaked those memos to a friend, Columbia University Law School professor Daniel Richman. At Comey’s direction, Richman read portions of the memos to Schmidt. Comey testified last month that he leaked the memos in order to force the appointment of a special counsel.

Rosenstein did just that days later.

One memo relayed to Schmidt discussed Comey’s Feb. 14 discussion with Trump about Michael Flynn, who had been fired as Trump’s national security director the day before.

Comey said that Trump asked him to back off of an investigation of Flynn.

The special counsel should also look into leaks of classified information, including the unmasking of Trump administration officials, by the Obama administration, the Republicans say. The letter suggest that the leak probe should focus on Comey, Lynch, former national security adviser Susan Rice, and former United Nations Amb. Samantha Power.

The Republicans, led by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the committee’s chairman, also want the special counsel to investigate the FBI’s reliance on an anti-Trump dossier created by Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that was working for an ally of Clinton’s.

The FBI used the dossier to form the basis of part of its investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Kremlin.

“You have the ability now to right the ship for the American people so these investigations may proceed independently and impartially. The American public has a right to know the facts — all of them — surrounding the election and its aftermath,” the Republicans state in their letter.

    Give you a break, that shitty cunt has got away with breaking the law way to long. She deserves ten times whatever the CUNT gets in this life if justice ever is served. How people idolize those sobs is unreal, No I don’t give a damn about Trump either so save that shit. But, as long as he is president & I am a citizen I wish him the best just like that sneaky mf Obama. The DNC and all their fucking tricks, all the evidence tampered with, the HORSESHIT lies, and the rigging. How any red blooded American with any sense what so ever can’t see her and that crew for what the hell they did is beyond me. Of course MSM won’t report much of it , doesn’t fit the narrative naturally the bunch of liberal brainwashed fucks.

  • Terroryzing Won

    Yeah. but I’m not holding my breath here. Neither should anyone else. Sessions should have gone after Clinton, Comey, & Lynch along with Susan Rice the day he was sworn into office. He had a couple of months to sit in front of his computer and type out a subpeona, takes an hour at most. An idiot with a 7th grade education could tell they were up to corrupt money deals & collusion for years and years. Why did Sessions drag his feet and wait for someone in Congress to ask for a Special attorney? Given Sessions knew that Muller was going to get after Trump & family right away? Did Sessions get death threats on his family? That would my first guess. But, as a man of supposed honor he should have stood up and told the public he got death threats on himself and his family. The SS can stop that from happening. That is honorable and understandable. Otherwise Sesions is NOT going to get any passes from me going forward.

    Here news Dave that you must have missed. The way Comey conducted his investigation by passed many steps normally taken during an investigation. Many at FBI criticised Comey for it. The law she would have been charged under does not have an “intent” provision which Comey said it does. He is wrong and it was pointed out to him by Trey Gowdy.

  • Fister

    Next we need an investigation of Mueller and those he hired to do the hatchet job on Trump.

  • Jimmi Stead

    About time, the whole ObamA administration should be locked up!

  • alvindawg

    No that would be you. Are you really blind to everything these pigs did to this country.

  • Molon Labe

    2 can play this game…game on!

  • Tom Mahan

    They should also investigate the uranium deal and donations to the clinton foundation.

  • karen

    Shouldn’t what you just said “Hillary again” tell YOU something? How many people in YOUR lifetime have died around you? Over 100? Not me! They are as crooked as it gets! You don’t have to admit it to anyone but just research that lunatic & her husband! All the way back to when she was an attorney and she defended her 1st rapist against a 13 year old girl & laughed about it! EVEN if the guy was innocent, which even she admits he wasn’t, there’s nothing, NOTHING, funny about rape, especially child rape! But please be my guest & keep your head wayyyy up your ass!! MY GOD this is disgusting!!!

  • Regina

    And many of his agents turned in their resignations when he let her go!

  • swed

    So what are the odds these criminals will be arrested, 1,000,000 to 1?
    So what are the chances the Bundies and Hammonds will be released from prison for defending their rights and property by the corrupt judge Navarro. Probably also 1,000,000 to 1.
