House Judiciary Launches Probe Into DOJ Clinton Decision

By Robert Donachie, 10-24-17, at The Daily Caller:

House Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy announced Tuesday morning a joint investigation into the FBI’s handling of the 2016 Clinton email investigation.

The Republican congressmen claim there are still a “host of outstanding questions” regarding how the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI oversaw the Clinton email investigation.

The congressmen are investigating a perceived double-standard in how the FBI publicly announced the investigations of Clinton’s handling of classified information but did not publicly announce its investigations into Trump campaign investigations.

Goodlatte and Gowdy are also calling into question the FBI’s decision to “notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016.”

“Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status,” Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a statement Tuesday. “The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and even handedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight.”

“The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken,” the congressmen wrote.

Former FBI Director James Comey has come under fire for his handling of the Clinton email investigation.

The FBI released documents in October that showed Comey started drafting a letter regarding the email probe months before the former FBI director began conducting key interviews. The letter reportedly recommended that charges not be brought against Clinton.

I would say that it’s about time, but if this goes like the other investigations into Hillary’s crimes, it will be a waste of time and money. Six months from now Gowdy will still be waiting for them to hand over documents that can’t be located, while Elijah Cummings and other Dems protect her.

Haven’t we seen this movie already?

  1. I must confess to an EXTREMELY troubling opinion to have concerning our Congressional investigations – but in recent years, they’ve been feckless and impotent, a purring toothless tabby cat instead of a tiger. I’ve lost so much respect for congressional hearings and investigations – what have they resolved? Who’d they find guilty and who has paid a price (any price) for evil doings? No one. This may be one of the troubling signs of a nation going downhill – that it can’t even police its own operators.

    • I saw today where Gowdy was talking on Fox News and he already said they shouldn’t have to ask twice for documents and the current DOJ is no more cooperative than their predecessors. So, here we go again.

  2. If the alternative to not conducting yet more investigations is that the Clintons, Lynch, Comey and everyone else involved gets away Scot free, then I can only be for it. I want Republicans to be like E. H. Harriman of the Union Pacific Railroad when it pursued Butch Cassidy for his crimes: RELENTLESS. I want the liars to feel as if they’ve been stripped naked for all the world to see. Except for that I hope they enjoy their retirements.

    • Oh my gosh, I’d forgotten about the relentless Mr. Harriman who eventually showed up everywhere they went – great example and yes, that’s who the Republicans should be like.

      But they’re not. The sad truth is, they’ll go through the motions of an investigation and occasionally spit out an update, probably call Hillary and Comey in for a hearing, but they’re much too yellow to actually take it to the point of filing charges or an indictment. If they honestly wanted them brought to justice, Jeff Sessions would have been all over this from the day he took the oath.

      Sorry to be so negative, but I think we’re being played. Again.

  3. Yes, I think it’s a remake of an old movie that’s been remade and remade again.

    BTW, the House is also investigating the uranium deal…

    Maybe one of them will get her.
