House Judiciary Committee Republicans on Thursday called for a new special counsel — to investigate Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Barack Obama and Loretta Lynch.
In a letter addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Republicans said they were writing to “request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation’s justice system and its investigators, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).”
They specifically requested a second special counsel, not Robert Mueller.
Watch Trey Gowdy vote to appoint a second special counsel to investigate James Comey, Hillary Clinton, and Loretta Lynch. We need to add Hillary Clinton and Jim Comey, the leaker.
Trey Gowdy along with 15 other Republicans voted yes to require Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special counsel.
These are key portions.
This is the full hearing.
