In order to restore our trust and faith, the American citizens deserve to know the truth. The world needs the truth. For too long we have been lied and betrayed…
Republican senators are now calling on the Department of Justice to appoint a second special counsel to investigate potential abuses by FBI and Justice Department in the Russia probe before Special Counsel Robert Mueller took over.
On Thursday, four Republican senators Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-SC, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas and Sen. Thom Tillis, R- N.C., sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, in which they wrote that “a special counsel is needed to work with the inspector general to independently gather the facts and make prosecutorial decisions, if any are merited.”
Via Fox News: “The senators say that Steele “materially misled the FBI” by saying he only shared the information in the dossier with business associate Fusion GPS and the FBI, when in fact he was providing information to the news media.
“Thus the basis for the warrant authorizing surveillance on a U.S. citizen rests largely on Mr. Steele’s credibility,” the referral states. “The Department of Justice has a responsibility to determine whether Mr. Steele provided false information to the FBI and whether the FBI’s representations to the court were in error.”
The senators wrote that “in light of sworn statements by Mr. Steele in British litigation, it appears that either Mr. Steele lied to the FBI or the British court, or that the classified documents reviewed by the committee contain materially false statements.”
The senators also released a February letter from Grassley and Graham to the Justice Department’s inspector general asking that he investigate the DOJ and FBI’s request for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance, or FISA, Act warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
In that letter, they ask the inspector general to review “potential improprieties in the FBI’s relationship” with Steele, the author of the infamous, unverified dossier used to obtain the Page warrant.
They also ask that the relationship between DOJ official Bruce Ohr and Steele, the disclosure of classified information to the press and the investigation into former national security adviser Mike Flynn be examined.
“We have the utmost confidence in the inspector general’s integrity, fairness and impartiality, and trust that he will complete these reviews in a thorough, unbiased, and timely fashion,” the senators wrote in Thursday’s letter. “However, by statute, the inspector general does not have the tools that a prosecutor would to gather all the facts, such as the ability to obtain testimony from essential witnesses who are not current DOJ employees.”
Calling for another special counsel, the senators argue: “The Justice Department cannot credibly investigate itself without these enhanced measures of independence to ensure that the public can have confidence in the outcome.”
It has to happen. So many Americans are asking for this.
Clintons and Obama’s wrongdoings against the USA are coming out. Lefties will begin to understand…
It’s past time to look at the real crooks in the Obama administration who tried to subvert our elections and government–much more dangerous than Russians. The American public wants to see corrupt Hillary, Obama, and their corrupt friends in the FBI and DOJ held legally accountable for their corruption and collusion!
What do you think? Do we need another special counsel to investigate the DOJ and FBI and Mueller?
