House to investigate Justice Department’s handling of Hillary Clinton email scandal

A pair of senior House Republicans have opened a joint investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, the lawmakers announced Tuesday.

The probe will be conducted by two congressional panels responsible for overseeing the Justice Department and government operations in general. The investigators will review then-FBI Director James Comey’s various decisions pertaining to the Clinton investigation, such as his unusual announcement that she should not face indictment.

But they will also review whether the Justice Department erred in its handling of investigations pertinent to President Trump’s campaign.

“Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales,” House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight and Government Reform Chair Trey Gowdy said in a joint statement. “Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status. The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness.”

    Why? Thought this was all about Hillary? You been investigating the election and Trump’s Team for ages now. Can’t stay focused for nothing rotten, dirty, charlatans and rogues.

      In the Clinton case, they erred because there was something there and they refused to see it for what it was, prejudging the case before it was investigated. In the Trump case, they erred because there was nothing there and they refused to see it for the “nothing burger” it was, prejudging the case before it was investigated. Can you guess which one the media is focused on? It matters not, Clinton will skate and Trump will remain vilified,

        Exactly only I am reading more about this whistle blower on the Putin Uranium Deal and it is, if allowed to break, cause his lawyers has proof positive of everything he says, including Lynch threatening him, it will be the BIGGEST the BIGGEST scandal yet.

        You are right until Hillary, Obama and all taken out there is no hope. Hillary acting all confident on TV about this Uranium Deal and as usual saying nothing to see here, run along and get along with the Trump/Russian connection.

          The USA has a big job to clean up decades of screw ups .

            I heard Gowdy today and I wonder who he has become. He trusts Mueller. Go figure.

        I was watching a movie the other day, the 80’s classic “Revenge of the Nerds”, and a scene in that movie reminded me of this farce. (Now, why I don’t mind being called a “nerd”, please don’t read into this.) The “cool kids” ran the campus and committed any act they cared about against the “nerds” with absolutely no fear of reprisals. They owned not only the “ruling body” of the school, they owned the media that covered it. Those wronged complained, but since the “cool kids” ran the investigation, nothing happened. It was not until the “nerds” fought back and took control did things start to look up. Even then, the “cool kids” would not accept the outcome of the election and did everything in their power to over turn it. Remind you of anything? Until the “cool kids” are removed from this investigation, there will not be a true finding of facts, no matter how hard the “nerds” try.
