Did you know that the Chairperson of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), and other Republicans on the committee, have requested, in strong terms, that an Independent Counsel be appointed to investigate….Loretta Lynch, James Comey and Hillary Clinton?
You can read all about it at the Judiciary Committee’s website. Or, you can just keep reading below (the bold print is mine):
Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Judiciary Committee Republicans today sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate unaddressed matters, some connected to the 2016 election and others, including many actions taken by Obama Administration officials like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The letter follows yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee approval of H. Res. 446, as amended, to request documents pertaining to the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary Clinton.
In their letter, the Judiciary Committee members express concern that the directive given to Special Counsel Robert Mueller is narrow in scope and many concerns arising out of the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath are not being investigated. The members call for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate grave concerns such as former Attorney General Lynch’s directive to former FBI Director Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the investigation into former Secretary Clinton; the FBI and Justice Department’s investigative decisions related to the Clinton email investigation, including the immunity deals given to potential co-conspirators; selected leaks of classified information that unmasked U.S. persons incidentally collected upon by the intelligence community; and the FBI’s reliance on “Fusion GPS” in its investigation of the Trump campaign, among many others issues.
Is this a meaningful request?
Well, there is far more evidence of wrongdoing among these three than there is of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, and we have an IC there, don’t we?
I have this fantasy that an Independent Counsel is appointed, he/she starts stocking the staff with people who donated to Republicans…and Democrats, along with their accomplice media, scream that this is a sham, a joke, that the fix is in.
Just like they did with Mueller………uh, never mind.
