For the inquiry of the Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch the House Judiciary Committee Republicans called for a new exceptional direction on Thursday.
In a letter lectured to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Republicans said they were writing to “request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation’s justice system and its investigators, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).”
The legislators said they assumed investigation of possible Russian influence on the U.S. presidential election was shielded by special counsel Robert Mueller, but that they “are not confident that other matters related to the 2016 election and aftermath and similarly under investigation,” by the previous director of FBI.
The letter said that: “The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel’s investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected. For this reason, we call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath, including actions taken previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
Justice Department deteriorated to charge Clinton or her friends for Clinton’s conduct of confidential information while at the State Department last year. And as a candidate, Trump susceptible to hire a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s actions.
A public announcement was made by Comey about the FBI endorsement that the Justice Department does not pursue charges against Clinton. He also said that “no reasonable prosecutor” about former secretary of the state could fetch a case. And his this assumption was broadly pre-arranged by Republicans.
After Trump’s dismissal of Comey, Muller was selected in May. And this happens after private meetings of FBI former director with the president. But the letter on Thursday have the recent messages from the White House.
“Our call for a special counsel is not made lightly. We have no interest in engendering more bad feelings and less confidence in the process or governmental institutions by the American people. Rather, our call is made on their behalf. It is meant to determine whether the criminal prosecution of any individual is warranted based on the solemn obligation to follow the facts wherever they lead and applying the law to those facts.”
