A group of Republicans from the House of Representatives asked the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation of current and former FBI officials, as well as Hillary Clinton.
The letter requests investigations of Hillary Clinton, former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and current FBI officials Peter Strozk and Lisa Page.
Fox News reports:
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 dossier’s 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.
The letter describes the potentially illegal actions conducted by each of the individuals for investigation.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the Department of Justice is investigating Comey for leaking classified memos.
The memos of concern were the ones written about conversations Comey had with President Trump and were recently released with redactions to the public.
The Justice Department inspector general is now conducting an investigation into classification issues related to the Comey memos, according to a person familiar with the matter. Mr. Comey has said he considered the memos personal rather than government documents. He has told Congress that he wrote them and authorized their release to the media “as a private citizen.”
It’s crucial the Justice Department must fully investigate these individuals.
The fact that high-level government officials likely broke the law to advance either a political or personal agenda is outrageous.
