The House Republicans who until now headed committees whose investigations are now shut down will “not go gentle into that good night.”
Democrats made it clear well before Nancy Pelosi clutched the gavel that they would be terminating all non-Trump-related investigations, saying their only purpose was to deflect attention from the Mueller probe. (Have you noticed that EVERY perfectly legitimate attempt to look into what Democrats have done is called “an attempt to deflect attention from the Mueller probe”? That phrase must have tested off-the-chart in Democrat focus groups.) Knowing this would happen, outgoing Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina released a seven-page letter disclosing their findings regarding the “investigation” (ha) into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material.
The letter summarizes their findings and calls for a special counsel to look into decisions made in the Clinton investigation and the “Trump/Russia” probe, particularly the “disparate way these two investigations were seemingly conducted.” (“Seemingly”?? I guess that word is obligatory, like the word “alleged” to describe a deed we know happened but that the jury technically is still deliberating.) Addressed to acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, it contains “significant new details,” which, according to FOX News’ Catherine Herridge, do not cast former FBI Director James Comey in a good light.
Recall that it’s Comey, by overstepping his authority at the FBI and announcing that “no reasonable prosecutor” would take the Hillary case, who preserved her 2016 presidential candidacy. Comey told reporters on two separate occasions that the decision not to pursue her case was “unanimous,” but this letter shows that House investigators found evidence to the contrary. According to then-FBI General Counsel James Baker (meaning their top lawyer) and multiple other witnesses, they had the evidence needed to go forward and were not unanimous in their decision to drop it.
Who are you gonna believe –- multiple witnesses at the FBI who were concerned about the way Hillary’s case was being handled, or James Comey?
Oh, and were you aware that one of the three attorneys advising him during his House testimony, Columbia University law professor Daniel Richman, is the very person Comey has testified he supplied with notes from his conversation with President Trump (DOJ property, and arguably classified) to get the ball rolling on a special counsel? And now Richman and Comey enjoy attorney-client privilege. (What is this person doing as Comey’s attorney? It’s as crazy as Cheryl Mills acting as both Hillary’s attorney and a potential witness in her case. Or Rod Rosenstein supervising Robert Mueller when he was a potential witness in the “Trump/Russia” case. Oh, wait, those things happened, too.)
Speaking of Rosenstein, the House letter also includes references to witness testimony regarding his comments about wearing a wire to record the president and possibly invoking the 25th Amendment to unseat him. The committees tried for many months to get Rosenstein to testify, but he managed to run out the clock. “The questions deserve to be asked,” the letter reads, “and the DAG deserves his chance to respond.”
But Lindsay Graham now heads the Senate Judiciary Committee, so we can be sure he’s on it. Good thing, too, because unless a special counsel is appointed, it’s up to the Senate now to get to the truth.
