This could be what conservatives have been waiting for.
From the time President Donald Trump finished speaking the Oath of Office, the headlines have been announcing allegations about a crime of “Russian collusion” that hasn’t even been established yet.
But if House Republicans get their way, the investigative power of the government might be turned toward events that actually happened – and determining just how badly American laws might actually have been broken — under the Barack Obama White House.
According to Breitbart, House Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Matt Gaetz of Florida are launching a probe into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s relationship with the FBI during its investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
In particular, the congressmen want to know more about former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony that Lynch had directed him to soft-pedal the probe by referring to it publicly as a “matter” rather than a “criminal investigation,” Breitbart reported.
The three have drafted a measure, according to Breitbart, that would “compel the production of documents and evidence” related to Lynch’s direction.
According to Breitbart, among other things, the measure would also compel testimony and documents about:
Comey’s leaks of memos about his conversations with Trump; discussions about immunity with Hillary Clinton confidants caught up in the email scandal; Comey’s decision last July to recommend that Clinton not be charged in the case; Lynch’s meeting with Bill Clinton last June at an airport in Phoenix; as well as any potential collusion between Comey and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is now the special counsel investigating the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia.
The whole ball of wax, in other words, when it comes to the non-stop assault on the Trump administration since before it even began. As welcome as it is for America, it could be very bad news for Comey, Lynch and other insiders from the Obama era — there could well be panic running through the swamp of D.C. when this starts getting traction.
Jordan and his colleagues haven’t introduced anything official into the House yet to authorize such digging, according to Breitbart. But when they do, House Republicans should be tripping over themselves to be the first to vote for it.
Jordan, a veteran of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, has been part of government investigation into IRS abuses of conservative political groups during Obama’s administration, and, as a member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, its probe into the cover-up of the terrorist attack in Libya in 2012.
So, he’s seen Democrat stonewalling first-hand, and wants to do something about it. The endless cries for investigation into a non-scandal “scandal” in the Trump administration is giving him an opening.
“For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable,” Jordan said wrote in an email to Breitbart.
“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.”
Well, we’re all pretty well aware of how serious congressional Democrats are about getting to the truth. They established that with an unending series of defensive moves and water-carrying for the Obama administration throughout the House investigations of scandals that would have destroyed a normal presidency.
Unfortunately for the American public, the mainstream media are about as interested in the truth as Democrats are. The same “fake news” outlets that are now attacking Trump on a daily basis pimped their principles for Barack Obama’s election and re-election.
They weren’t going to sully their hero with anything approaching real journalistic inquiry into the Obama White House’s abuse of American citizens.
But if Jordan and his conservative cohorts are successful that all might be about to change.
