Eleven Republican members of Congress have sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department, demanding that Attorney General Jeff Sessions initiate an investigation into four people whose names have become synonymous with scandal: Former FBI Director James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, and Hillary Clinton.
While Sessions announced recently that a federal prosecutor was now assigned to examining some of the problematic issues arising from the 2016 campaign such as FISA abuse on the part of the DOJ, he has resisted pressure to name a second special counsel who would take the investigation out of the hands of the FBI and the Justice Department. As such, the pressure is only increasing, as is evidenced by the referral sent by Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida and 10 other lawmakers.
The Republicans want the Department of Justice to leave no stone unturned in their requested investigation. Among the questions they want answered: What happened on that airport tarmac in Arizona, when Lynch met privately with Bill Clinton? How was the probe into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server handled? What factors went into approving the sale of Uranium One? Did James Comey lie to Congress? Safe to say that by the end of such an investigation, Barack Obama himself might have to worry about the feds showing up at his door.
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,” the lawmakers said in their letter.
In addition to the aforementioned names, the Republicans said that biased FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page should also be put under the microscope of investigation.
Sessions has his appointed federal prosecutor looking into some of these open questions and the Office of the Inspector General is due to release a report on the email investigation soon, but there is certainly still room for more to be done. So many problems have been raised in recent months, and none of them are getting the scrutiny they truly deserve. Meanwhile, we have Robert Mueller running all over creation looking for unpaid parking tickets in an attempt to push Trump out of office. The bias stinks, and it stinks of a coverup.
Eventually, the corruption is going to come out into the open. If Jeff Sessions wants to make himself an American hero, he’ll be the one to expose it.
