Rep Lee Zelden and twenty five co sponsors are offering a bill calling for a second special counsel to investigate the shady dealings of the Deep State within the FBI and the DOJ.
They have listed over four dozen reasons for appointing a special counsel. They decided to cut the comatose AG Jeff Sessions and do it themselves. That seems like a wise decision since when it comes to AGs, Sessions is no better than the previous two, Lynch and Holder. (Both of whom are in danger of going to prison if a special counsel is chosen.
- “Misconduct” high in DOJ ranks may have led to “premature conclusion” of FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, despite clear evidence to suggest serious violations of the law occurred.
- Former FBI Director James Comey’s seeming contradiction over when he chose to not bring charges against Clinton. He told Congress it was after investigators interviewed her. It was later revealed to have happened months earlier.
- The DOJ’s failure to “fully investigation” Clinton for her part in the Uranium One deal and its connections to the Clinton Foundation.
- The DOJ using “politically biased, unverified sources” to obtain secret FISA warrants on Carter Page.
- The FBI failed to follow its own procedures, known as the “Woods Procedures,” when obtaining the warrant on Page.
- The fact that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia remains ongoing, despite uncovering hardly any evidence in two years. The legislation also alleges the investigation is “based on questionable and insufficient intelligence and biased motivations.”
- The fact that Comey admittedly leaked information to a lawyer friend about his meetings with Trump.
- The text messages between FBI senior agent Peter Strzok and now-former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
- The informant placed in the Trump campaign.
- The DOJ’s refusal to comply with many requests made by Congress.
For all of those reasons, Zeldin wrote that “the DOJ and FBI cannot be expected to fully investigate themselves regarding this matter.”
“The concerns of the American people are serious and the issues requiring an immediate, unbiased, independent, and thorough investigation are broad,” he added. “The Attorney General of the United States should immediately appoint a special counsel to conduct a thorough and independent investigation of these grave concerns.”
If they can have a special counsel to investigate a hoax, we can have one to investigate real crimes.
