Two House committees want an accounting from U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber of his investigation into whether the Justice Department and the FBI abused its authority in their probes of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump's election campaign.
The Republican ranking members of the House Government Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Huber on Monday seeking an update of his work.
"Your investigation has been ongoing for over nine months," wrote Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top GOP members of the Oversight and Judiciary committees, respectively.
"During the course of our extensive investigation we have interviewed more than a dozen current and former DOJ and FBI personnel, and were surprised to hear none of these potentially informative witnesses testified to speaking with you,"
Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions quietly appointed Huber after the committees called for a review into whether Department of Justice or FBI employees were biased during their now-closed probe of Clinton's use of a private email server, and as they began investigating Trump campaign ties to Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
An Obama appointee, Huber has served as U.S. attorney in Utah since June 2015. Now retired Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, saved his job after Trump asked U.S. attorneys across the country to resign so he could appoint new ones.
Specifically, the lawmakers want Huber to provide them by Jan. 21 with the number of witnesses he has interviewed along with their names and the number remaining to be interviewed. They also want to know how many Foreign Intelligent Surveillance Act or FISA applications as well as the number and nature of documents he reviewed.

But not Mueller’s?.......................
>But not Muellers?.......................
Let’s not get CRAZY now; the (R)N(C)/GOPe *will* need something to run against come ‘20.
Dems are quick to accuse of govt. overreach when it comes to investigating other Dems, but nothing about abusing the authority when it comes to Mueller on Trump...
Scam from the beginning.
Huber was held up only to prevent a Real Investigation.
Hes done nothing, but it served his Deep State Masters.
No indictments, no unfriendlies, no threat to Mueller, Comey, and Rosenstein.
Strip him of whatever salary hes receiving for his sham investigation. Jeff Sessions..the gift that keeps on giving.
