A letter has been sent to AG Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah John Hube asking that each use the powers of his office to investigate “potential violations of federal statutes” by former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI counsel Lisa Page who were all involved in the handling, or mishandling, of investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, the Uranium One deal, the Clinton Foundation, and more:
“Those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American” and because of that the members want to be sure that any “potential violations of law” be “vetted appropriately,” the group of Republican lawmakers wrote.
“In doing so, we are especially mindful of the dissimilar degree of zealousness that has marked the investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively,” the lawmakers wrote.
I have to wonder if this letter was prepared in anticipation of a a missed deadline by the DOJ. Today marked the deadline that Rod Rosenstein was given to turn over copies of James Comey’s memos about his conversations with President Trump:
Three House Republican committee chairmen made the request in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying Comey relied on the memos to write parts of his new book.
“Now that at least the excerpts of the book are out, and it appears like there is much in the book that comes from the memos,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Friday on “The Story.”
Rosenstein has asked for more time…of course.
James Comey announced today he’s not a Republican anymore. What took him so long…he’s acted like a partisan Democrat for some time!
Based on reporting in the Washington Times DC Whispers contends that both Republicans and Democrats think James Comey is a “slimeball.” They’ll get no argument form me.
And yet another wrinkle in the mangled group of botched and ongoing cases is reported by CNS News:
As deputy FBI director, Andrew McCabe received a phone call on August 12, 2016 — less than three months before the presidential election — from the Obama Justice Department, in which he apparently was pressured to shut down the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation (CF), an organization that some critics allege was used as a multi-million dollar pay-for-play operation to buy access to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton. …
… Why is a top official from the Obama Justice Department apparently pressuring then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe to shut down the Bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation?
Commenting on the matter, J. Christian Adams, an attorney who formerly served (2005-2008) in the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, said, “This is a top-level DOJ official who called the FBI and said shut down the Hillary [Clinton] Foundation investigation.”
“What kind of Justice Deprtment do we have, that a couple weeks before the election, that presidential political appointees are calling the No. 2 guy at the FBI, essentially saying, give Hillary a pass?” said Adams. “That’s in the OIG report! That’s the real bombshell!”
So much corruption and coverup…will we ever get to the bottom of this and see people held accountable? Your guess is as good as mine.
Here’s another extraordinary tidbit. Adam Shaw over at FOX News reports:
The federal judge presiding over the Michael Cohen case finds herself at the center of one of the toughest legal brawls of the Trump era — but District Judge Kimba Wood is no stranger to the spotlight.
She has a colorful and potentially controversial past that could arise as the case involving President Trump’s personal attorney moves forward. Trump allies were quick to note that Wood once was considered for attorney general by then-President Bill Clinton — and she even officiated the wedding of left-wing billionaire George Soros.
Former Trump adviser and current Fox News contributor Sebastian Gorka said Wood should recuse herself.
“Now she has power over the lawyer who works for the man who beat Bill’s wife in the 2016 election,” he tweeted. “WHERE’S THE THE RECUSAL?”
The Double Standard standard of the left? Lefties don’t have to recuse!
They are also underhanded and sneaky. Sean Hannity was unjustly outed, according to Andrew McCarthy by a leftie lawyer for the NYT and CNN:
… it was outrageous for federal district judge Kimba Wood to direct that talk-radio and Fox News host Sean Hannity be publicly identified as Michael Cohen’s third client. … The court’s order that Hannity’s name be disclosed in open court violated longstanding, judicially endorsed standards against identifying uncharged persons in legal proceedings attendant to criminal investigations. … the judge allowed Robert Balin, an attorney for the New York Times and CNN, to intervene. Balin, the Times reports, argued that potential embarrassment was not a sufficient reason to withhold the purported client’s name from the public. The judge was somehow persuaded by this frivolous contention. Without providing Hannity any notice and opportunity to be heard on the matter, she directed that his name be disclosed in open court. (emphasis mine)
Apparently it’s also okay for left media to have all kinds of connections to politicians and attorneys and to the Clintons and Obama but not so for Sean Hannity. The hypocracy is palpable!
The problem for the left is that all of this has become incredibly obvious…the double standard, the corruption, the lying and coverup…it’s unfolding in full view of the American public. The longer this dark era of injustice goes on the worse the Democrat Party looks. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving group of people.
