Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley spent a lovely half hour on the floor of the United States Senate on Wednesday slamming the FBI and DOJ for their incompetency with regard to Hillary Clinton.
She’s got this insane trifecta of scandals going on and there is complete paralysis under FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They should be looking into her criminal email scandal, the personally-profitable Uranium One deal, and Hillary’s illegal funding of the Russian Dossier used to smear President Trump!
Check it out, per Washington Free Beacon:
“The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok’s work for the special counsel and in the FBI’s investigation of [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn,” Grassley wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
“Strzok’s behavior and involvement in these two politically sensitive cases raises new concerns of inappropriate political influence in the work of the FBI,” Grassley added.
Grassley said in October he wrote a letter to Strzok requesting “voluntary cooperation and a private transcribed interview with the committee,” but received no reply.
Grassley requested in his letter to Wray to view the text messages in question, as well as any additional communications containing favorable or unfavorable statements about Trump or Hillary Clinton and any communications involving Strzok regarding decisions about closing the Clinton investigation or opening the investigation into potential collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government.
Grassley gave the FBI until Dec. 11 to hand over the documents related to Strzok.
“All year I have wanted to learn more about the origins of the dossier that largely kick started the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. In July, the ranking member [Feinstein] joined me in a bipartisan letter seeking voluntary cooperation from the firm that produced the dossier. The dossier was based largely on Russian sources within Russia and was put together by a former British spy. It made salacious and unverified claims about Trump. The company responsible for producing it, Fusion GPS, was uncooperative,” Grassley stated.
“In response to our bipartisan request, it dumped on the committee about 32,000 pages of press clippings and 8,000 pages that were entirely blank. Since then, it has provided zero additional documents.”
“So far,” Grassley said, “I have seen no credible evidence that President Trump has told anyone to lie. I have also seen no credible evidence that he or his aides have destroyed records being sought by investigators.”
