Republicans call for second special counsel to probe Clinton, Lynch and more

Nearly two-dozen Republicans are calling on the Trump Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel to investigate the raft of 2016 campaign controversies involving Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration, warning these questions cannot “be allowed to die on the vine” amid the Russia probe firestorm.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and GOP committee colleagues made the request in a letter Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“The American public has a right to know the facts – all of them – surrounding the election and its aftermath,” they wrote. “We urge you to appoint a second special counsel to ensure these troubling, unanswered questions are not relegated to the dustbin of history.”

House Judiciary Republicans voted earlier this week to call an investigation into Comey’s handling of the Clinton email probe.

One of those lawmakers, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., told “Fox & Friends” on Friday that there seems to be a “double standard in justice.”

“I don’t think that the crimes of the prior administration, of Hillary Clinton, the collusion with James Comey and Loretta Lynch should be forgotten just because Hillary Clinton lost the election,” he said.

Love to see it with all Republican Prosecutors like what is being done against President Trump. I am not holding my breath since the weak spineless Republicans cannot stand up to the crooked con-artist Democrats. Only special prosecutors when Democrats demand one.

How about the FBI also investigating the Clintons for murder. Man wouldn't that be great if both Clintons were found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder and sentenced to life in prison. WOW talk about a celebration party.

Really sick of the harrassment of the President and his family.And yet true criminals like Comey, DOJ LL, DNC, Clintons, Meuller go without any investigations and we have all seen and heard their crimes.Those republicans are traitors to their country for not screaming out for investigations. The entire system is corrupted by the democrats while sissy republicans suck their thumbs. Who are we supposed to vote in these seats when all we have to choose from are either corrupt or self serving sissies.No one has faith in FBI anymore.
