DOJ’s Exoneration Of Clinton To Be Investigated




The chairmen of two House committees will be investigating decisions at the Obama Administration’s Justice Department during the 2016 probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while Secretary of State.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R- Va.) and House Oversight Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) made the announcement in a joint statement today:

“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered. These include, but are 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;
• FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions.

“The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”

Questions have been mounting since it was revealed this summer that then-FBI Director James Comey began drafting his statement exonerating Clinton before the former Secretary of State and her aides were even interviewed.
