Rep Lee Zeldin (R-NY) sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wednesday urging him appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
On Tuesday, AG Sessions told reporters the Department of Justice would investigate Obama’s FISA abuses. He then elaborated and said Inspector General Horowitz would be in charge of the investigation. The IG has no prosecutorial power so what is the point? Americans want justice!
President Trump lashed out at Sessions for asking the Inspector General to look into Obama era FISA abuse. Trump correctly states it “will take forever.”
Rep Zeldin posted the letter to his Twitter account and said, “Just sent letter asking Jeff Sessions to appoint Special Counsel to investigate decisions/activities re FISA abuse, & how/why Clinton probe ended, & Trump-Russia probe began. TY to @Jim_Jordan, @RepRooney @RepTedBudd @RepMattGaetz @RepMarkMeadows @replouiegohmert & other signers!”
The letter reads (partial transcript):
As you know, evidence has come to light that raises serious concerns about decisions and activities by leadership at the highest levels of the DOJ and FBI regarding how and why the Clinton probe ended and how and why the Trump Russia probe began. Additionally, important questions have been raised with regards to FISA warrants targeting U.S. citizen Carter Page. We write you to urge you today to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate these decisions and activities.

The FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a total sham.
Crooked Comey drafted the exoneration letter before interviewing 17 witnesses, including Hillary Clinton.
We have no Attorney General.
AG Sessions went AWOL the day he was sworn in.
We need a serious investigation into Obama’s DOJ, FBI and the FISA abuses.
