FBI Dictor James Comey is in serious trouble, as Congress is not happy with his willingness to allow Hillary Clinton off the hook for her lying and criminal activity.
Comey’s notes about the investigation were so redacted that they were useless. He worked with Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Obama White House to make sure no charges were filed. This was part of the meeting Lynch had with Bill Clinton, to coach Hillary on what she should say to investigators.
Comey has refused to turn over many documents that they have a right to see. Now Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) just issues a subpoena.
It’s about time!
House Committee on Science, Space and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, subpoenaed FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday for documents and information related to the security of the private email account and server Hillary Clinton used when she led the State Department.
Smith asked Comey for the documents in a Sept. 9 letter, but then issued the subpoena after Comey failed to comply with the request.
Smith is working closely with House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, on the investigation into Clinton’s emails to evaluate the security of classified information sent electronically in the executive branch.
The issue at hand is whether changes need to be made to the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014, according to a committee statement.
In his Sept. 9 letter to Comey, Smith wrote that the FBI didn’t release enough information to answer all the questions he had about Clinton’s server. He asked for unclassified and unredacted copies of interview notes with employees of Platte River Networks, one of the three companies subpoenaed by the committee, according to the letter.
Smith added that he was worried about the scope of the FBI’s investigation because the FBI could not obtain the 13 devices and single laptop Clinton used to access her email when she led the department.
It’s essential that the American people see the Executive Branch isn’t really above the law. It’s up to Congress to keep the White House in check, and what happened in FBI’s criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton may be the biggest political scandal in modern history.
We deserve answers, and the truth must be revealed before the November elections.
