The cover up surrounding Hillary Clinton and her private email server continues to unravel.
Trey Gowdy has not given up his investigation.
And now he just got his hands on some documents that puts Clinton in big trouble.
The Department of Justice finally stopped stonewalling Congress’ document requests.
Gowdy revealed that he and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte reached a deal with the DOJ on the production of documents relating to the FBI’s conduct in the Clinton email investigation.
Fox News reports:
“The Republican chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced Monday that the Justice Department has agreed to provide them with documents related to the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
The deal was struck after Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., met this month with the U.S. attorney, John Lausch, who has been selected to respond to Republican demands for documents.
“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.”
The FBI has been accused of letting Clinton off the hook for clear criminal behavior.
Former FBI Director James Comey even drafted a statement clearing her of any wrongdoing before the investigation was complete.
Critics have long believed the fix was in.
James Comey has admitted his decision to reopen the investigation in late October 2016 was fueled by his belief that Clinton was going to win and that he didn’t want the FBI sitting on possible new information that would taint her victory.
This leads many to wonder what other decisions Comey has made in the course of this investigation that were influenced by politics.
FBI critics contend anyone other than Clinton would have been charged for mishandling classified information.
But was she let go because, as Comey claimed, the decision wasn’t even a close call on the merits?
Or was it because the decision was influenced by politics?
Now that Gowdy will be able to sift through even more documents, Americans should expect a straight answer.
