Republicans Request That Justice Department Appoint A Second Special Counsel To Investigate Clinton And Lynch

By  | 

Fourteen members of the House Judiciary Committee have signed a letter, addressed to the Department of Justice, urging that a second special counsel investigation be launched to investigate wrong-doing, on the part of the Democrats, during the 2016 presidential election.

The Republicans are wanting several matters to be examined.

Firstly, they are insisting that the Justice Department to examine the Obama administration’s unmasking of American citizens during their surveillance of foreign officials.

Former Obama White House intelligence official, Susan Rice, admitted to requesting the identities of the American citizens that were incidentally picked up during wiretap surveillance of foreign officials.

While appearing on MSNBC, Rice claimed that such a request was only natural in cases where, for example, the Americans in question were planning on committing a terrorist act of some sort.

She did not elaborate on what terrorist acts the unmasked Trump Campaign members were suspected of planning to commit, nor did she explain how those unmasked identities were then illegally leaked to the Mainstream Media.

Another aspect of the campaign that Republicans are seeking to investigate is the possible collusion between the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton during the investigation into Hillary’s secret, personal email server in which she trafficked in classified information.

In July of 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that Hillary Clinton did break the law, but then concluded that no charges should be brought against her because the FBI could not prove that she intended to break the law.

Finally, the Republicans are wanting investigators to look into then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s role in the matter.

While testifying before Congress, James Comey revealed that he had had been told by Lynch to refer to the Hillary email probe as a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”

In addition, when considering the fact that the Obama administration attorney general had a secret, off the record meeting with Bill Clinton, on an Arizona tarmac, the House Republicans are seeking to find out if Lynch had interfered with the Hillary investigation in any way.

Where do you stand on this? Do you think an investigation should be launched against Obama administration officials and Hillary Clinton?
