Republicans in Congress plan to flip the special investigation in the claims of collusion with Russia into a ‘witch hunt’ of their own.
Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Matt Gaetz of Florida are starting an investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey. They are looking at the connection between the FBI investigation and the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
The trio are specifically asking for evidence of Comey downplaying the fact that the scandal is a criminal matter, not a ‘matter’.
The proposal the three are making would also help dig up testimony and documents regarding:
“Comey’s leaks of memos about his conversations with Trump; discussions about immunity with Hillary Clinton confidants caught up in the email scandal; Comey’s decision last July to recommend that Clinton not be charged in the case; Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton last June at an airport in Phoenix; as well as any potential collusion between Comey and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is now the special counsel investigating the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia.”
Rep. Jordan(R-OH) has been on the committees that have investigated IRS abuses during Obama’s administration and also the investigation in to the cover up of Benghazi,
So he knows liberal grandstanding when he sees it.
“’For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable,’ Jordan said wrote in an email to Breitbart.
“Now they want to investigate? OK, let’s investigate! Both parties have criticized James Comey over the past year for his performance as FBI director. Even Sen. Feinstein 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.”
This should leave Loretta Lynch and James Comey shaking in fear since the Obama Administration isn’t in power to protect them.
