Skip to comments.GOP reps refer Comey, Clinton, McCabe for criminal investigation
Posted on 04/18/2018 5:59:04 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
Nearly a dozen Republican members of Congress on Wednesday sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department and FBI seeking an investigation of former bureau boss James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton in connection with 2016 campaign controversies.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions already announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to review some of those broader issues, while resisting calls for a second special counsel. But the referral represents an escalation of Republican pressure to probe top Democrats and Trump critics.
Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and 10 other House lawmakers want an investigation into potential violations that cover everything from the handling of the Clinton email probe to the anti-Trump dossiers funding to the Uranium One controversy. They made their case in a letter sent Wednesday to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, whom Sessions named to lead the previously announced evaluation.
Complaining about dissimilar degrees of zealousness in the investigations into Clinton and Trump campaign associates, they wrote:
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.

Let the rats chew themselves up for awhile .
This is getting good ..
I don't think the IG listed any.
Huber. Trust Sessions. Sealed indictments.
Comey’s ‘recommendation’ was just that- a recommendation, not a final decision. Jeff Session could choose to ignore it and act just on the laundry list of items Comey read.
Where is Cankles, anyway...?
Anybody else that did those things Comey enumerated would have been prosecuted.
Doesn’t anyone even look at the sidebars anymore?
Drudge says nothing. Wow
Why did they omit Obozo?
Because Sessions is playing 24D chess.
Sessions referred other issues to a prosecutor who is right in the thick of things in BFE Utah or something. I guess the prosecutor in Nome Alaska wasnt available. Sessions is putting the country at great risk and thus needs to be gone immediately.
...... fix it ...
any pic there works.
No article with this title or source is in the sidebar including this one.
Ignore the troll!
The person in Utah was chosen because 1) he is a straight shooter good guy 2) it takes grand jury trial out of the beltway and D.C.
Wonder how many establishment folks will be dragged into the investigation if it happens?
