House Republicans Unveil Resolution Officially Calling For Second Special Counsel to Investigate the Investigators, (DOJ & FBI) VIDEO
COULD THERE BE A SECOND SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS?
House Republicans unveiled Tuesday a 12 page resolution calling for a second special counsel to investigate misconduct and possible crimes at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation. House Republicans and members of the Freedom Caucus have called for a special counsel as they believe that the FBI and DOJ are incapable of investigating themselves. I would agree. During the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server/emails and the so-called Trump-Russian collusion investigations, we have been witness to bias, partisanship and a double standard from high ranking members of the DOJ & FBI, the likes we have never seen.
The resolution is backed by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus as well as two of the group’s co-founders — Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Fox News has learned the 12-page resolution will ask a second special counsel to probe matters related to three topics:The ending of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, the progress of the Trump-Russia investigation from its origins through the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, and abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the warrant application process.
The resolution is expected to say that a second special counsel would have greater autonomy to investigate those issues than the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. Last week, Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers that he had completed his draft report on the Clinton investigation and submitted it to the DOJ and the FBI.

Expressing the sense of Congress that the Attorney General
of the United States should appoint a Special Counsel
to investigate misconduct at the Department of Justice
and Federal Bureau of Investigation, including an inves-
tigation of abuse of the FISA warrant process, how
and why the Hillary Clinton probe ended, and how and
why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began.
Whereas there is an urgent need for the appointment of a
second Special Counsel in light of evidence that raises
critical concerns about decisions, activities, and inherent
bias displayed at the highest levels of the Department of
Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) regarding FISA abuse, how and why the Hillary
Clinton email probe ended, and how and why the Donald
Trump-Russia probe began;
Whereas the concerns of the American people are serious and
the issues requiring an immediate, unbiased, inde-
pendent, and thorough investigation are broad;
Whereas misconduct during the 2016 presidential election by
high-ranking individuals within the FBI and DOJ may
have led to the premature conclusion of the FBI’s 2016
probe into then-presidential candidate and former Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton; [...]
Whereas the DOJ and FBI cannot be expected to fully inves-
tigate themselves regarding this matter:
WE HAVE GOT TO CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING …
As reported at CNS News, the federal government collected a record $2,007,451,000,000 in total taxes through the first seven months of fiscal 2018; however, still managed to run a deficit for that period of $385,444,000,000. This country has got to get serious about its spending issues and prioritize them. The days of the welfare state are over. Serious consideration needs to be looked into Medicare and social security. However, for those who blame the Trump tax cuts, you would be wrong. In the month of April itself, the Treasury collected $510,440,000,000 in total taxes, while spending $296,192,000,000 thus, running a surplus for the month of April of $214,255,000,000.Wastful spending must be done away with and Republicans who spend like liberal Democrats must be removed from office.
The federal government collected a record $2,007,451,000,000 in total taxes through the first seven months of fiscal 2018 (October through April), but still ran a deficit for that period of $385,444,000,000, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement.
The record total federal taxes collected during this period also included a record $1,050,601,000,000 in individual income taxes—marking the earliest in any fiscal year that individual income taxes have topped $1 trillion.
But even while the Treasury was collecting its record $2,007,451,000,000 in total taxes from October through April, it was spending $2,392,896,000,000—thus, accumulating a deficit of $385,444,000,000.
The federal government took in a record tax haul in April en route to its biggest-ever monthly budget surplus, the Congressional Budget Office said, as a surging economy left Americans with more money in their paychecks — and this more to pay to Uncle Sam.
All told the government collected $515 billion and spent $297 billion, for a total monthly surplus of $218 billion. That swamped the previous monthly record of $190 billion, set in 2001.
CBO analysts were surprised by the surplus, which was some $40 billion more than they’d guessed at less than a month ago.
Comey Wrote in Memos He Later Leaked to Liberal Media … “I Don’t Do Sneaky Things, I Don’t Leak, I Don’t Do Weasel Moves”
COMEY WAS AGAINST LEAKING, BEFORE HE WAS FOR IT … IF THE SNEAKY WEAZIL FITS, WEAR IT.
Who needs to buy Comey’s book when you can read his memos for free? The below comments came from the redacted memos of disgraced former FBI Director James Comey’s redacted memos that were published online Thursday evening.
In one of his memo’x dated January 28th 2017, Comey recalls a dinner he had with President Trump in the Green Room at the White House. Let’s just get to the unbelievable part, you can read all the details … James Comey told Trump he could count on him to always tell the truth, stating, “I said I don’t do sneaky things, I don’t leak, I don’t do weasel moves.” Seriously? Sir, that’s all you seemed capable of as it was not but a few months later after Comey was fired that he leaked the memos to the liberal media via a friend. He admitted to this during Congressional testimony.
“I said I don’t do sneaky things, I don’t leak, I don’t do weasel moves.”
Comey Gives Weasels a Bad Name
Who finds this completely comical that they very individual who said he did not leak and do sneaky things, did just that? You are just so credible James Comey, That and the fact that these memos are released when Comey’s former #2 at the FBI that the Justice Department inspector general referred his finding that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe repeatedly misled investigators to Washington’s top federal prosecutor, who will determine whether McCabe should be charged with a crime. Yup, nothing sneaky here.
The Justice Department inspector general referred his finding that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe repeatedly misled investigators to Washington’s top federal prosecutor, who will determine whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, according to people familiar with the matter.
The referral to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia occurred some time ago, after the inspector general concluded McCabe had lied to investigators or his boss, then-FBI Director James B. Comey, on four occasions, three of them under oath.
The U.S. attorney’s office met with McCabe’s legal team in recent weeks, though it was not immediately clear whether prosecutors there were conducting their own investigation or believed criminal charges are appropriate.
Congressional Committees Have Received Comey Memos and They are Here To Read … FBI Admits Comey Leaked
AND FINALLY THE DOJ HAS RELEASED THE COMEY MEMOS …
After the deadline had passed to receive the memo’s and faced with the threat of subpoena and possible contempt of Congress charges, the Justice Department has finally released the redacted and unredacted Comey’s memos to Congress late Thursday. Both the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees have the Comey memos. Comey wrote seven memos from nine conversations he had with President Donald Trump during his time at the FBI. And yes these are work related documents that Comey felt the need to leak to the media.
Comey is now on the hot seat and may just feal what it is like to be on the ned of one of his own investigations.
The Department of Justice is expected to share the so-called “Comey memos” with Congress as early as today or tomorrow, The Daily Beast confirmed Thursday. The memos, which were written by fired FBI chief James Comey to keep records of his conversations with President Trump early last year, has become a source of contention between House Republicans and the Department of Justice.
The Redacted Comey memos can be read HERE. The fact that they are redacted tells us that they contained classified information which means that former FBI Director James Comey did in fact leak classified information. I hope he makes a lot of money with his book because he is going to need it for legal fees in the future.
UPDATE I: From The Gateway Pundit.
AND—– THE MEMOS ARE CLASSIFIED!
Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

AG Sessions Appoints Federal Prosecutor U.S. Attorney Huber to Evaluating Alleged FBI, DOJ Wrongdoing … No Second Special Counsel Appointed
NO 2ND SPECIAL COUNCIL? HOW THE HELL IS SOME ONE SUPPOSED TO INVESTIGATE THEIR BOSS?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed federal prosecutor U.S. Attorney Huber to investigate and evaluate certain issues involving the FBI, the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One. However, Sessions states he is not appointing a second special counsel, at least at this point. AG Sessions has been a major disappointment. One has to ask, how can a federal prosecutor actually investigate their boss? Huber will be investigating Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, how exactly does that work? It is obvious that an independent council is needed to investigate the FBI and AG’s office, that individual cannot be a part of the swamp.
President Trump, please fire AG Sessions and replace him with a pitbull. If there was ever a time where a special council should be appointed, this would be it.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Thursday a federal prosecutor was evaluating certain issues involving the FBI, the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, but said he would not appoint a second special counsel at this point. In a letter directed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House
Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Sessions revealed that he asked U.S. Attorney John Huber to lead the evaluation into issues raised by the committees in recent months.
“I write in response to recent letters requesting the appointment of a Special Counsel to review certain prosecutorial and investigative determinations made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. I take the concerns you raise seriously,” Sessions wrote, noting how important it was that the American people and Congress had “confidence” in the Justice Department.
“While we continue to believe the appointment of a second Special Counsel is necessary, this is a step in the right direction. We expect that U.S. Attorney Huber, given his reputation, will conduct an independent and thorough investigation. Such an investigation is critical to restoring the reputation of both the Bureau and DOJ in the eyes of the American people,” Goodlatte and Gowdy responded in a statement.
Sessions referenced a November 2017 letter sent by Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, first reported by Fox News, directing senior federal prosecutors to evaluate “certain issues” requested by congressional Republicans, involving the sale of Uranium One and alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation.
On Nov. 13, 2017, Boyd wrote: “These senior prosecutors will report directly to the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General [Rod Rosenstein], as appropriate, and will make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a Special Counsel.”
