Thirteen members of the House of Representatives sent a scathing letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week, demanding he appoint a second special counsel to investigate the Department of Justice’s handling of the ‘Russia Dossier’ in obtaining FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.
The GOP Representatives -including Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Mark Meadows, and others- submitted their official request Wednesday, urging the Attorney General to fast-track his investigation into reports the FBI used Clinton-financed material to obtain surveillance warrants.
“As you know, evidence has come to light that raises serious concerns about decisions and activities by leadership at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding how and why the Clinton probe ended and how and why the Trump-Russia probe began,” states the letter.
“Additionally, important questions have been raised with regards to FISA warrants targeting U.S. citizen Carter Page. We write to urge you today to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate these decisions and activities,” add the Representatives.
Attorney General Sessions found himself in hot water this week after the President called his reliance on the Inspector General to investigate reports of FISA abuse “disgraceful.”
