It’s likely a direct reflection of the failure of the Senate to do anything other than attempt to railroad President Trump through their Intelligence Committee. They haven’t passed any of the bills that the House has sent to them and likely won’t. They’re primarily a debating and name calling institution, and not much more.
The House members appear anxious to, at a minimum, distinguish themselves from their do-nothing counterparts, to be able to point in a “don’t blame me” manner at the Senate when they face their constituents next month, during the August recess.
The House Judiciary Committee is doing what they can to be on the record, finally, as against the criminal Democrats, or at a minimum to give the appearance that they are attempting to take action against them, with two actions having taken place over the past few days worth noting.
They sent a letter, the topic of the first video, to the Department of Justice, requesting a Special Counsel to investigate the criminal Democrat activities, with plenty of evidence already gathered and available on Hillary Clinton, and ripe, low hanging fruit for investigators on Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes and many others. The list of potential defendants is long and growing.
Attorney and Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett addresses that five page letter, dated July 27th, written by 14 members of the House Judiciary Committee.” It was addressed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
After expressing their lack of faith in the integrity and intentions of the Mueller investigation, the Republicans stated, “We call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath, including actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
Jarrett’s first response is to ask what took them so long. He says the “election should have underscored the need for a special counsel because Hillary Clinton was the Democrat nominee.” He notes how “the evidence was laid out against her very nicely by James Comey, when he held his infamous news conference a year ago this month, in which he laid out a compelling case for how she violated the espionage act.”
Jarrett adds, “At the very end he completely misinterpreted the law, saying that she didn’t intend to violate the law. That’s not the legal standard.”
In addition to the letter there was also a vote on an amendment taken which passed 16 to 13, again along party lines, with all Democrats voting in favor of allowing the criminals within their party to “get away it.”
The amendment hollowed out a Democrat bill designed to get anti-Trump information related to the Comey firing and AG Sessions’ recusal and turned it into one which seeks a second special counsel, assigned to investigate the real criminals of the previous regime. Named specifically in the amendment as targets are Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Sheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel, Bill Clinton, smear merchants Fusion GPS, Huma Abedin, the Clinton Foundation, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, as well as any collusion involving Robert Mueller. If a second special counsel is assigned, he’s going to need an army of attorneys and investigators.
It may now proceed to the House floor for a vote, RINO Paul Ryan willing. The amendment, which was co-sponsored by Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Mike Johnson (R-LA) is read in the second video below. At the end, Chairman Goodlatte invites Gaetz to sign a letter that he has prepared towards the same objective.
If nothing else, hopefully the letter and vote will force or provide cover if it is somehow needed, perhaps in support of limiting the extent of the recusal, for Attorney General Sessions to get busy doing the will of the American people, prosecuting the criminals who flouted the law and rubbed our noses in it for the last eight years.
We don’t want to see them get away with it. Hopefully this concerted effort will bear some fruit in the form of a real prosecution and a special prosecutor into the real crimes, those actually committed, that have Democrat fingerprints all over them.
