Trey Gowdy Officially Cleared to Go After Lynch, Clinton
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy has announced, along with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, that the two will be jointly investigating the Department of Justice’s handling of the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, saying that the department’s actions have left “a host of outstanding questions that must be answered.”
“Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales… No entity or individual is exempt from oversight,” the two chairmen said in a statement Tuesday.
The “host of outstanding questions” pertain to subjects including, but not limited to:
“FBI’s decision to publicly announce the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into campaign associates of then-candidate Donald Trump;
“FBI’s decision to notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016;
“FBI’s decision to appropriate full decision making in respect to charging or not charging Secretary Clinton to the FBI rather than the DOJ;
