Republicans Call for Second Special Counsel to Probe Clinton, Lynch and More


On Thursday, House Judiciary Committee Republicans called for an investigation against Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and Loretta Lynch.

The move is directly in response the Russian probe.  In their statement, Republicans said:

The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel’s investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected.  For this reason, we call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath…

Lawmakers explained the move in the statement, since they knew the left would condemn it.  According to the speech, they seek to restore faith in the American people.  They feel that the Russian probe has been a calculated, biased move.  Naturally, the same standards apply to the Clinton campaign.  Basically, it’s time for the left to get a taste of their own medicine.

The investigation comes as no surprise.  Trump views the Russian probe as a source of frustration.  It hinders his ability to lead.  He has often called it a “witch hunt”.

I believe the counter-investigation is a good move.  It has been suspicious that Trump’s campaign was investigated from the start.  The Republican’s victory clearly took the smug left by surprise.  The probe has been nothing more than an investigation by sore losers.

If they want to out Trump for corruption, they should be comfortable to do the same to their own candidate.  Which, as we all know by now, could be one of the biggest criminals in politics today.  See here and here.
