New emails show Hillary-FBI-DOJ coordination
Newly uncovered emails containing 22 messages with “Top Secret” information found on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s personal email server indicate that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ) “coordinated” efforts to devise a response to a major development in her email probe.
The recent discovery bolsters Republicans’ newly raised allegations that there was a “concerning level of coordination” between the FBI and DOJ during Clinton’s private email investigation.
“Republican Rep. Mark Meadows cited [the accusations] in a letter earlier this week claiming former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to Congress – in which he downplayed FBI-DOJ coordination on the Clinton case – may be at odds with documents suggesting ‘frequent’ coordination,” Fox News announced.
Digging up the Dems’ buried scandal?
The letter written by several House Republicans to Attorney General Jeff Sessions – and to FBI Directory Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney John Huber – by several House Republicans asks him to open an investigation into Comey, Clinton and other DOJ officials involved in the Russia probe … accusing them of a coordinated bias.
”We write to refer [Comey, Clinton and DOJ members] for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes … [and] are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively,” the letter signed by 11 GOP lawmakers on Wednesday reads. “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.”
Besides seeking to get to the bottom of Clinton’s alleged criminal behavior, the letter is also looking to open the door on the current controversy revolving around Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who many believe Trump is poised to fire.
