Congress: Hillary Clinton Set To Be Investigated By Special Counsel

House Conservatives have launched a probe gunning for the investigation and prosecution of James Comey and Hillary Clinton, demanding information from the Justice Department that they believe will expose a “criminal conspiracy.”

Two days after President Trump demanded to know why “Hillary’s crimes” were not being investigated, the amendment requires the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate the shady dealings of James Comey, Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton during the last election cycle.

The amendment, first reported by the Washington Post, demands information on “leaks by James B. Comey,” on “the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators” and Comey’s decision to “usurp the authority of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against” Clinton.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., a co-sponsor of the amendment, said he aims to “push back” against “accusations” that are distracting from the agenda of President Trump and Republicans in Congress.

The bottom line is we are tired of passively letting people make accusations to overcrowd our agenda and they ought to respond to claims we know exist about their misconduct,” Biggs said in an interview, referring to Clinton and other Democrats targeted in the amendment, including Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser.


Washington Examiner reports: The amendment requires the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to explore the Justice Department and FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable,” said Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, another sponsor of the amendment, in a statement to the Washington Examiner. “Both parties have criticized James Comey over the past year for his performance as FBI director. Even Sen. Feinstein [Dianne] says there should be an investigation into Loretta Lynch and James Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Let’s have a special counsel for that and see how serious congressional Democrats are about getting to the truth.

The amendment, also sponsored by Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Mike Johnson, R-La., will be attached to a bill from Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., that requests the Justice Department provide documents related to Comey’s firing.

In recent days, Trump has complained on Twitter that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has not moved to investigate Clinton on other issues unrelated to her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.


The conservative-authored amendment asks the Justice Department to explain why the FBI did not further investigate Clinton for “selling access to the U.S. State Department through Clinton Foundation donations.”

Biggs insisted he and his colleagues did not file their amendment to do the bidding of Trump.

This is a matter of seeking justice,” Biggs said. “It’s what this is always about. If you don’t seek justice, people lose faith and confidence in their representatives.

In addition to Clinton and Comey, the amendment targets Rice, who some conservatives argue inappropriately sought the identities of people close to Trump — in a process known as “unmasking” — whose communications were captured after the election in surveillance of foreigners by U.S. spy agencies.

  1. According to Lynch and Comey, this was only a MATTER, not an investigation. They will need Einstein to determine the true nature of this matter and whether there is enough political energy to see it to the finish line.

  2. It’s makes me wonder if the slow, but increasingly hard to ignore, horror stories that all link through major political and religious persons and organisations, are heading towards a conclusion, that – dear-fucking-jeebus – will precipitate the destruction of the current system of (local/national/world) governance and control.

  3. If every person reading this puts out a verbal prayer today that this MONSTER is arrested and convicted,it will happen.Thoughts, and prayers are energy heard,and dealt with,try it millions of us are unconsciously making it happen with our thought against the cabal we the people will bring them to their knees

  4. The murdering witch needs to be hung in public!!! But we know that will never happen, everyone is scared of her. Bunch of wusses, all of them. All talk no action.

  5. The murdering witch needs to be hung in public. Nothing or very little will come of this, slap on the hand or whatever. These men that are supposed to be investigating her are wusses, their afraid of her…We will never see her in jail!
