Do you support these efforts and hope to see Clinton locked up?
Republican Trey Gowdy, whose investigation into the terror attack on an American consular building was seen even by some Republicans as an effort to hurt Hillary Clinton’s election chances, is now demanding that three FBI officials testify before his Oversight Committee to discuss the bureau’s decision to not charge the former Secretary of State for mishandling classified information and use of a private email server.
Specifically, Gowdy and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday to make available FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI Chief of Staff Jim Rybicki and FBI counsel Lisa Page—all of whom figure prominently in Republican complaints that the FBI was biased in favor of Clinton during the 2016 campaign.
Gowdy and Goodlatte said they want to know why the FBI made the decision “to appropriate from [the Department of Justice] the decision-making authority with respect to charging or not charging former Secretary Clinton,” a reference to then-Director James Comey’s decision to not recommend charges against the Democratic candidate, a decision still criticized by Republicans.
The three FBI officials all have a connection to Clinton: McCabe’s wife, a Democrat, ran for Virginia’s Senate and received some funds from groups tied to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. President Donald Trump has used that connection to claim that McCabe’s wife received money from Clinton, a friend of McAuliffe, though there’s no evidence that any money came from the Clinton campaign.
Page was one of the two FBI agents found to have traded text messages critical of then-candidate Trump and supportive of Hillary Clinton. The texts led to the firing of another agent, Peter Strzok by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Rybicki was chief of staff to Comey before he was fired by Trump earlier this year, in part because of Comey’s investigation into Trump’s campaign. Rybicki was involved in drafting a statement clearing Clinton in the email controversy before the FBI interviewed her.
