Republican Lawmakers Request Criminal Investigation Of These Obama Admin Officials, Read The Full Letter
Justice may finally be on the horizon for James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, and Andrew McCabe.
On Wednesday, 11 members of Congress sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and U.S. Attorney John Huber. The Republican lawmakers are requesting a criminal investigation be opened concerning the actions of the Obama administration officials.
More specifically, the letter calls for an investigation of Comey, Clinton, Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The lengthy request, released by Representative Ron DeSantis, outlines their egregious actions.
In their opening salvo, the lawmakers called attention to discrepancies. “… we are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump,” they wrote.
Disturbingly, the letter accuses the Obama officials of violating several federal statutes.
With regards to James Comey, now on a media blitz to promote his new book, the lawmakers allege several violations. First, they suggest he is guilty of “improper investigative conduct” possibly “motivated by a political agenda.”
Then, citing Comey’s testimony to Congress and a New York Times story, they alleged he leaked classified information concerning conversations with President Trump. Four of the seven memos he gave to Professor Alan Richman, a close friend, were marked as “classified.”
Next, there is the fact that Comey drafted a statement exonerating Clinton before she and 17 other witnesses were interviewed. Which, brings us to Peter Strzok. He is one of the FBI agents that worked on the Clinton probe.
Strzok and Page
Lovers and colleagues, Strzok and Page exchanged thousands of text messages regarding the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations. Their pro-Hillary, Trump bashing texts eventually caused Robert Mueller to fire Strzok from his team.
In their referral, lawmakers allege the anti-Trump duo of violating 18 USC 1505– Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees. That crime is punishable by a monetary fine and up to five years in prison.
