Well, folks. Due to Department of Justice actions in 2016 that left “a host of outstanding questions that must be answered,” House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte have been cleared to jointly investigate the Department of Justice’s handling of the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the chairmen said, “Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status. The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight.”
Per the full statement, the “host of outstanding questions” include, but are not limited to the following:
- “FBI’s decision to publicly announce the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into campaign associates of then-candidate Donald Trump;”
- “FBI’s decision to notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016;”
- “FBI’s decision to appropriate full decision making in respect to charging or not charging Secretary Clinton to the FBI rather than the DOJ;”
- “FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions.”
In other words, all of the scandals that occurred under Obama’s Department of Justice and were swept under the rug at the time are going to be brought to light and FINALLY given the attention they deserve. After all, “Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”
And when all is said and done, I imagine the outcome will not bode well for Loretta Lynch, or Hillary Clinton. Yikes!
