Fox News reported:
Gowdy, R-S.C., and Goodlatte, R-Va., penned a letter Tuesday to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“Matters have arisen—both recently and otherwise—which necessitate the appointment of a Special Counsel. We do not make this observation and attendant request lightly,” Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote.
They pointed, specifically, toward the use of the infamous anti-Trump dossier used in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to obtain a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“There is evidence of bias, trending toward animus, among those charged with investigating serious cases,” they wrote. “There is evidence political opposition research was used in court filings. There is evidence this political opposition research was neither vetted before it was used nor fully revealed to the relevant tribunal.”
They added: “Questions have arisen with the FISA process and these questions and concerns threaten to impugn both public and congressional confidence in significant counterintelligence program processes and those charged with overseeing and implementing these counterintelligence processes.”
Gowdy and Goodlatte wrote that because the “decisions of both former and current Department of Justice and FBI officials are at issue,” they do not believe the DOJ is “capable” of investigating the “fact patterns in a fashion likely to garner public confidence.”
Rod Rosenstein will never let this fly. His signature is on the FISA application which approved the illegal spy warrant on Carter Page.
Rosenstein isn’t going to let a special counsel investigate his criminality.
Last Tuesday, AG Sessions told reporters he was going to have Inspector General Horowitz investigate Obama’s FISA abuses.
Trump blasted Sessions because IG Horowitz doesn’t have prosecutorial power. Furthermore, Horowitz is an Obama appointee-can we trust him?
WE NEED A SPECIAL COUNSEL.
Last week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
At the time of this publication, thirteen GOP Reps. have signed Zeldin’s letter.
Americans are mad as hell watching dirty cop Mueller hunt down an innocent President Trump while Obama’s corrupt DOJ and FBI officials skate.
