Two top Republican lawmakers have reached a deal with the Department of Justice to gain access to the Federal Bureau of Investigation‘s documents regarding the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s private email server, according to Fox News.
On Monday, Republican Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Trey Gowdy of South Carolina announced the DOJ agreed to give the House Judiciary Committee documents related how the FBI interviewed Clinton and the specific crimes she committed.
We are now closer than ever to perhaps seeing Clinton taken up the river and held accountable for her corrupt actions.
Goodlatte and Gowdy struck a deal with United States Attorney John Lausch, who was selected by the DOJ to work with Republican lawmakers to provide access to documents regarding the handling — or lack thereof — of Clinton’s private email server.
“We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017,” Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement. “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”
This is a major win for Republicans and those who believe Clinton should be charged for breaking the law. The documents will reveal how the FBI interviewed Clinton and her associates, as well as all of their illegal actions. This can pave the way for Congress to not only open a new investigation, it may lead to the appointment of a second special counsel.
It was revealed in 2016 that Clinton and several of her aides sent and received classified information on their private, unsecured email server. The server, which was hidden in the basement of Clinton’s home, was illegal and should never have been set up in the first place.
Her server was hacked numerous times by our enemies, meaning potential terrorists and hostile foreign actors likely gained access to all of the classified information she failed to protect.
Gowdy and Goodlatte will not have the opportunity to use the documents to bolster the case for a second special counsel to investigate Clinton’s private server, compromising classified information, and then deleting tens of thousands of emails that she was subpoenaed to preserve.
Clinton clearly broke the law countless times, and the FBI has admitted that. But she was given a pass because the deep state believed she was going to win the 2016 presidential election.
But she lost, and President Donald Trump’s administration and the Republican-controlled Congress are actively working to hold corrupt officials accountable. Clinton was allowed to skirt charges and break the law for decades, and now we are arguably closer than ever before to seeing Clinton held accountable for her corrupt actions.
