House Republicans Want Investigation of Hillary's 'Special Treatment' from FBI

The Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, Chuck Grassley, is now using the sweeping investigative power he has to collect evidence from the Federal Bureau of Investigation of political bias within the Justice Department.

Peter Strzok, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent with "an extreme bias" against Trump, was involved in immunity deals offered to Clinton's top confidantes and then was drafted into the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Russia "witch hunt" into the Trump Administration, said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

"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 sent a letter dated Tuesday t0 FBI Director Chris Wray seeking communications and records related to the agent, Peter Strzok.

The House Intelligence Committee has complained about similar FBI stonewalling techniques regarding the documents about Stzrok and related information about the former FBI Director, James Comey's controversial statement a year ago that had announced that the agency had decided not to bring any criminal charges against Clinton in the email investigations.

Freedom Caucus co-chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) suggested that the FBI's investigation as well as probes by Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller into allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials have been given far more weight than that of reports that the Clinton campaign indirectly engaged Russia by entering into a contract with a law firm that retained a security firm to prepare a dossier alleging collusion between Trump campaign members and Russia.

Grassley, in his letter to Wray, further said "it appears" that Mueller "may have learned this information from the Office of [Justice Department's] Inspector General's ongoing review of the handling of controversial pre-election activities of the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation related to the campaign". He referred to it as "special" and said it was handled with a "small team".

The texts between Strzok and Page occurred while both were working on the Clinton investigation.

Then Gowdy trashed the idea that Strzok would be responsible for interviewing key witnesses in the Clinton probe.

Grassley's letter, which was made public Wednesday, noted his previous request to interview Strzok, a request to which Grassley said he had yet not received a response from Justice Department.

Grassley gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation until December 11 to hand over the documents related to Strzok.

Lynch in the summer of 2016 was heavily criticized for creating what appeared to be an impression of impropriety when reports surfaced that she had a private meeting with former President Bill Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport.

Then there's Andrew Weissmann - another member of Mueller's investigative team who wrote an email to an Obama-era holdover in the Department of Justice, Sally Yates, expressing his delight that she defied Trump earlier this year on his proposed ban on travel from a handful of terror-prone nations.
