Washington, D.C. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) today called for an investigation into allegations that the Obama Justice Department pressured the FBI to shut down its Clinton Foundation probe during the 2016 presidential election.
A recent report issued by the Department of Justices Office of the Inspector General contained disturbing information that the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General, who is the top staff person in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General and advises on all major investigations and policy matters, called former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to express displeasure that FBI agents were pursuing a probe into the Clinton Foundation during the election season. The Deputy Attorney General at the time was Sally Yates, who was appointed to her post by President Obama.
In a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Chairman Goodlatte calls for the Justice Department to investigate allegations that senior officials at the Obama Justice Department sought to hamper the FBIs investigation into the Clinton Foundation and to hold any wrongdoers accountable.
Below is the text of the letter. The signed copy can be found HERE.

Obama Administration obstructed justice? Read the letter.
This is Front Page News!
I held my nose and watched the, ‘Evening Propaganda Transmission’ and for some reason it was, ‘Bash Trump’ ‘Connect Trump to Russia’ ‘Trump Is Mean’ ‘Trump Sucks’ ‘Wildfires Due To Global Warming’ ‘Too Many Ticks Due To Global Warming’ ‘Some Heartwarming Story About a Retiring Cop’ and then ‘Trump Sucks.’
I can’t believe they’d miss THIS story! What gives?
At this point, Trump should fire Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller, and appoint Horrowitz as AG.
He (and JW) the only ones investigating anything from the prior administration anyway.
What gives? Obviously rhetorical. They’re part of the obstruction and cover up.
We've all been Magoo'd.
Speaking of ‘senior officials’, when is someone going to ask Comey the $64K question?
That is, ‘Had Hillary won and become president, and she fired you, as we know she would have immediately done (with the blessing of the DNC), would you have still leaked memos to invoke the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate Hillary? And if not, why not?’
Perhaps, Hillary or Bill Clinton are willing to make an appointment to be interviewed by Charles Ortel and Jason Goodman on either Sunday or Wednesday evenings.
The website is “Crowd Source the Truth2”.
That would be a barn-burning kick.
Perhaps you weren't paying attention, but FoxNews reported back in January that US Attorney Cody Hiland was directing the active investigation of the Clinton Foundation. Hiland was nominated by President Trump in late June and was finally confirmed by the Senate in late September. They are working, not talking.
LOL! It doesn’t happen often, believe me! The LESS TV news I watch, the HAPPIER I am. :)
