GOP TO INVESTIGATE JAMES COMEY HANDLING OF HILLARY CLINTON’S EMAIL SCANDAL – FROM ‘IMMUNITY DEALS’ TO ‘NO CHARGES’ FILED

Posted on

  • House GOP demands information on “leaks by James B. Comey,” on “the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators”
  • and Comey’s decision to “usurp the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against” Clinton.
  • The amendment requires the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to explore the Justice Department and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

 

From Washington Examiner:

A group of House conservatives has filed an amendment asking the Justice Department for information related to former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email case.

The amendment, first reported by the Washington Post, demands information on “leaks by James B. Comey,” on “the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators” and Comey’s decision to “usurp the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against” Clinton.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a co-sponsor of the amendment, told the Washington Examiner he aims to “push back” against “accusations” that are distracting from the agenda of President Trump and Republicans in Congress.

“The bottom line is we are tired of passively letting people make accusations to overcrowd our agenda and they ought to respond to claims we know exist about their misconduct,” Biggs said in an interview, referring to Clinton and other Democrats targeted in the amendment, including Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser.

The amendment requires the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to explore the Justice Department and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

“For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, another sponsor of the amendment, in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “Both parties have criticized James Comey over the past year for his performance as FBI director. Even Sen. Feinstein [Dianne] says there should be an investigation into Loretta Lynch and James Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Let’s have a special counsel for that and see how serious congressional Democrats are about getting to the truth.”
