The GOP chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee announced Monday that the Department of Justice and the FBI have agreed to hand-over thousands of documents related to Hillary Clinton’s botched email investigation.
According to Fox News, Rep. Gowdy and Rep. Goodlatte both met with a US Attorney last month to negotiate the release of the highly-anticipated material; securing its release after a year of legal battles and courtroom drama.
“We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017,” Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement. “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”
The GOP lawmakers subpoenaed the DOJ weeks ago; slamming the Department for stonewalling their investigation into whether politics played a role in Clinton’s exoneration just weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
