(National Sentinel) Congress: Tired of seeing Deep State operatives launch one broadside after another at the duly-elected President Donald J. Trump and his administration, House conservatives plan to go on the offense to call for a Judiciary Committee investigation into actions taken by Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, and his FBI director, James Comey.
As Breitbart News reported exclusively:
Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Mike Johnson (R-LA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) have drafted an amendment that would compel government cooperation with a congressional probe into Lynch’s and Comey’s activities.
Specifically, the amendment—a draft of which was obtained by Breitbart News—would compel the production of documents and evidence regarding Lynch’s order to Comey to “mislead the American people by stating he should refer to the investigation into the mishandling of classified data and use of an unauthorized email server by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a ‘matter,’ rather than a criminal ‘investigation.’”
The amendment specifically presses the Department of Justice to cooperate with the congressional investigation this would create, making it easier for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to probe these and the other matters laid out.
Last week the president publicly expressed his frustration with his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for his recusal from the bogus Russian investigations now being conducted by both chambers of Congress, the Justice Department and a special counsel, Robert Mueller. But now these congressional allies of Trump are attempting to empower Sessions to help them learn more about the actions of Lynch and Comey.
It’s not clear if House Speaker Paul Ryan, RINO-Wis., will allow the effort to proceed.
“For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable,” Jordan said in an email. “Now they 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.”
“It’s time for Republicans in Congress to start playing offense,” Gaetz added in his own emailed statement.
Other House conservatives are on board with the effort.
“The American people are tired of focusing on Russia and ignoring some of the inconsistencies of the previous administration,” said Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus and a big Trump ally. “They don’t understand why Republicans are not coming to the defense of this president.”
