The Federal Bureau of Investigation started the procedure of transferring hundreds of pages of memos and other records to Congress about the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of her private email server, reported The Hill.
Bob Goodlatte, head of the House Judiciary Committee and Trey Gowdy, chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee revealed during the past months that they want to question the Bureau about the decision to publicly investigate Clinton’s email server where it was shown that she obviously mishandled sensible data while not disclosing their probe into Trump’s campaign staff members about the alleged collusion with Russia.
There’s an obvious prejudice in investigating the uncorroborated accusations of a collusion between the Trump camp and Russia over Hillary’s confirmed mishandling of top-secret data.
“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered,” Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement.
Nevertheless, this is only one of the problems the Bureau has. They also have to explain to Gowdy and Goodlatte how and why then-FBI Director James Comey begun the process of drafting Clinton’s acquittal statement prior to even making interviews with main witnesses.
From The Hill:
As The Hill reported, the FBI said they also want to know why the FBI decided to formally notify Congress of the Clinton probe on two separate occasions; why the FBI — rather than the Justice Department — recommended that Clinton not be charged after the investigation concluded; and the reasoning behind their timeline for announcing such decisions.
“The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken,” their statement continued.
The FBI told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday that they would soon start giving over the requested records.
The release of the documents also comes as reports revealed that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe recused himself from Clinton’s probe about a week before the general election in 2016. He was enticed to resign over questions regarding a possible conflict of interest including hundreds of thousands of dollars that were transferred to his wife’s political campaign from a Hillary Clinton associate.
