Republican Representatives have gotten together to wield the power that We the People gave them– this time to help Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Republicans have created an amendment which will order the Department of Justice to cooperate with an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Breitbart reported.
This will be a congressional investigation, and the Department of Justice will have no choice but to hand over any evidence or documents about Comey and Lynch’s potential misdeeds.
Specifically, the Representatives want to look at Lynch’s order to Comey; when she told him to call the Clinton email scandal a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”
Also up for investigation are Comey’s leaks to the press, Comey’s knowledge about Fusion GPS, his knowledge about any spying done on Trump, and his potential collusion with Mueller.
The amendment also demands any information relating to the details and consequences of any immunity deals given to Hillary Clinton’s people. Now that will be enlightening.
The bold Representatives behind this amendment are Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Mike Johnson (R-LA), Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ). The amendment has yet to be introduced, and no one other than these four has spoken about it to the press. Hopefully, no Republican will stand in the way of it.
Not only would a Republican who resists meet with public ridicule, but they likely wouldn’t hold office again.
Further, Representative Jordan pointed out that even a Democrat standing against this bill would be a complete hypocrite. Johnson said, “Now [Democrats] want to investigate? Ok, let’s investigate! Both parties have criticized James Comey over the past year for his performance as FBI director.”
“Even Sen. Feinstein says there should be an investigation into Loretta Lynch and James Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Let’s have a special counsel for that and see how serious Congressional Democrats are about getting to the truth.”
This investigation has to happen. These Representatives said their constituents demand it. Representative Gaetz explained what we all are feeling, saying that people lose faith in our system when elected officials do not uphold the law and cannot be held to account for their actions.
These Representatives have listened to their constituents, and have stepped up to support our President. They are doing their jobs. They truly deserve our applause and support.
