The House Judiciary Committee officially voted to begin a probe into the actions of former FBI director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Wednesday.
The new investigation, which was authorized by passing an amendment in the Judiciary Committee, will look into Comey’s potential leaking activities and Lynch’s handling of the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. The Judiciary Committee voted 16-13 along partisan lines for this measure, and the Democrats were NOT pleased. Rep Steve Cohen (D-TN) said:
Ha, these Democrats can cry me a river, especially after their nonsensical Russia investigation hysterics. As Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said about the new investigations:
“In my district, my constituents say, ‘Hey, what’s going on with investigation of the crimes of the previous administration?’ When I hear talk that this contains right-wing conspiracies, well, I’ll tell you, my constituents think what’s going on in the other bill are left-wing conspiracy theories.”
The probe is wide-ranging and, according toBreitbart, will include investigating into:
- Lynch’s order that Comey refer to the Clinton email investigation as a “matter.”
- Comey’s communication with the Columbia University Law Professor who helped leak his Trump meeting memos.
- The Clinton Foundation’s influence from foreign governments, especially the Uranium One deal- where Russians gained US uranium assets.
- The tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch during the 2016 campaign.
- Comey’s possible knowledge of Susan Rice’s potentially improper “unmasking” of Americans related to the Trump team.
- Possible immunity deals given to those related to the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
- And a few more! You can read the whole list here
We have to wait and see if Comey and Lynch will go along with the investigation, or if the Committee will subpoena them or their associates if they don’t.Paul Ryan could also potentially block the probe with his power as House Speaker.
This House Judiciary Committee investigation is about to get VERY interesting, we might FINALLY start getting some answers about the shady dealings of the Obama Administration. As always, Liberty Writers will be following it closely- so stay tuned, Patriots!
