|Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Speaker Paul Ryan & Rep. Jason Chaffetz won't let the dream die!|
"...no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."
Yesterday Attorney General Loretta Lynch officially closed the book on the Department of Justice investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s emails when she accepted Comey's recommendation stating...
"Late this afternoon, I met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors and agents who conducted the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State. I received and accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation."
And so ends our long national nightmare. Case closed.
Not a chance.
Republicans are outraged that there have been no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton after the year long investigation into her use of a private email server and want answers!
Apparently these answers must and will be extracted from FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the behest of House and Senate Republicans.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday night that Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who chairs the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, plans to call up FBI director James Comey to Capitol Hill to testify about Clinton’s emails. Ryan said in an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News...
“We’re going to have hearings... There are a lot of unanswered questions here.”
Hearing the call to duty Chaffetz heartily agreed and announced yesterday that he would indeed drag Comey before the Oversight Committee...
“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing. The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable. Congress and the American people have a right to understand the depth and breadth of the FBI’s investigation.”
In addition to testifying, Senate Republicans added yet another demand for Comey, and have called on him to make the entire investigation into the emails public.
On the Lynch front:
The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), is also demanding answers to a list of questions about the agency’s probe of Clinton’s emails and just today announced that he’s calling in Attorney General Loretta Lynch next week to testify about, among other things, the “serious concerns” raised by the FBI’s conclusion on Clinton’s emails.
Hey, if these guys keep this up they could drag this out all the way to election day... in 2020... Just in time for Hillary's second term.
