Judiciary Committee asks for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch

July 30, 2017

  According to this story all 20 Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee have signed a letter and sent it to Attorney General Jeff Sessions asking for an investigation of Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch for their shading dealings leading up to the 2016 election. Here is more:

Republicans of the House Judiciary Committee drafted a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Thursday, asking them to appoint a second special counsel to investigate the 2016 elections.

Unlike the current special counsel assigned to investigate matters surrounding the election, Robert Mueller, the letter calls for an investigation into the “actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”

The letter comes on the heels of a Thursday announcement that the committee has approved an investigation of its own into these figures. That investigation is slated to include a probe into ex-Director Comey’s leaking of his conversations with President Donald Trump through friend and law professor Daniel Richmond and alleged improprieties in former Attorney General Lynch’s handling of the investigation into then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email server. It was Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, one of the letter’s addressees, who made the initial appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference after Sessions recused himself from oversight of the probe.

Here are the 14 specific questions the Judiciary Committee wants answers to:

  1. Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing Mr. Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation;
  2. The shadow cast over our system of justice concerning Secretary Clinton and her involvement in mishandling classified information;
  3. FBI and DOJ’s investigative decisions related to former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation, including the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to potential Clinton co-conspirators Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel and possibly others;
  4. The apparent failure of DOJ to empanel a grand jury to investigate allegations of mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and her associates;
  5. The Department of State and its employees’ involvement in determining which communications of Secretary Clinton’s and her associates to turn over for public scrutiny;
  6. WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings;
  7. Connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine;
  8. Mr. Comey’s knowledge of the purchase of Uranium One by the company Rosatom, whether the approval of the sale was connected to any donations made to the Clinton Foundation, and what role Secretary Clinton played in the approval of that sale that had national security ramifications;
  9. Disclosures arising from unlawful access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) computer systems, including inappropriate collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign;
  10. Post-election accusations by the President that he was wiretapped by the previous Administration, and whether Mr. Comey and Ms. Lynch had any knowledge of efforts made by any federal agency to unlawfully monitor communications of then-candidate Trump or his associates;
  11. Selected leaks of classified information related to the unmasking of U.S. person identities incidentally collected upon by the intelligence community, including an assessment of whether anyone in the Obama Administration, including Mr. Comey, Ms. Lynch, Ms. Susan Rice, Ms. Samantha Power, or others, had any knowledge about the “unmasking” of individuals on then candidate-Trump’s campaign team, transition team, or both;
  12. Admitted leaks by Mr. Comey to Columbia University law professor, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations between Mr. Comey and President Trump, how the leaked information was purposefully released to lead to the appointment of a special counsel, and whether any classified information was included in the now infamous “Comey memos”;
  13. Mr. Comey’s and the FBI’s apparent reliance on “Fusion GPS” in its investigation of the Trump campaign, including the company’s creation of a “dossier” of information about Mr. Trump, that dossier’s commission and dissemination in the months before and after the 2016 election, whether the FBI paid anyone connected to the dossier, and the intelligence sources of Fusion GPS or any person or company working for Fusion GPS and its affiliates; and
  14. Any and all potential leaks originated by Mr. Comey and provide to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 1993.

  All valid questions in my opinion and questions which, although ignored by the mainstream media, we have wanted answers to for quite some time. After having come under fire from Donald Trump over the last couple of weeks I do not see how Jeff Sessions can afford to ignore this request, it is going to be interesting to see how he responds.

    Why ask for a special counsel if they are going to muck up the investigation by having their own three ring circus? Shut up, sit down and let the special counsel do their job.

    Trump’s tweet storm against the AG seems to have the produced the desired effect.

    Why do I think this is going nowhere? But hope springs eternal. They are packing up their tents and going home for a month, back for a week, then off again….

      I share your skepticism, we have seen how this usually plays out and there is no reason to believe this will be any different.

    Glad to see the list!
    The State Dept. is another Agenda run octopus arm – needs to be cleaned out. I’m sure there are some “real American’s” who are employed in that dept. that would do well in positions of leadership – replacing the enemies who are lodged in authority seats. Out with the scum in with the good! {And that “good” not defined by those who twist Truth into a lie and support it.}

      I am sure there must be some good ones there but they are being drowned out by the deep state and they probably are afraid to speak out.

      My sister worked in the state department for 15 years for several govt contractors. According to her calling it a cesspool is an affront to cesspools everywhere.

        And now it looks like McMaster could be the dirtiest of them all when it comes to undermining Trump!
