This past Thursday, the House Judiciary has made it clear that they are interested, once again, in launching an investigation on James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and Hillary Clinton.
Just days later, Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee are taking it one step further. All 20 of the House’s Republican members have signed the bill that proposes a further investigation into the 2016 presidential election to be directed by a special counsel. The draft has been presented to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
The proposed investigation would explore the “actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
The investigation is expected to explore the following areas:
- A further look into ex- FBI Director James Comey’s leaking of his conversations with President Donald Trump through friend and law professor Daniel Richmond.
- A further look into previous accusations against former Attorney General Lynch’s handling of the investigation into then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
- The possibility of appointing a new special counsel, taking the place of Robert Mueller. Mueller was named by General Rosenstein to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), elaborated in a letter on the Republicans’ position not the investigation by writing, “Many Democrats and members of the Washington media previously called for a “special prosecutor” to investigate Russian influence on the election and connections with the Trump campaign. Not surprisingly, once you actually made the decision to appoint a special counsel, the calls for further investigations by congressional committees continued, focused on allegations that have heretofore produced no evidence of criminality, despite the fact that over a year has passed since the opening of the original FBI investigation.”
In reference to the Russian investigation, Goddlatte went on to say, “[A] comprehensive investigation into the 2016 Presidential campaign and its aftermath must…be free of even the suggestion of political interference…a second newly-appointed special counsel will not be encumbered by these considerations.”
The letter went on to list 14 specific inquiries that the Republicans think should be investigated.
The following inquiries are highlighting the list…
- Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing Mr. Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation.
- The apparent failure of DOJ to impanel a grand jury to investigate allegations of mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and her associates.
- Connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine.
