In late February, Rep Lee Zeldin (R-NY) sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
The letter reads (partial transcript):
As you know, evidence has come to light that raises serious concerns about decisions and activities by leadership at the highest levels of the DOJ and FBI regarding how and why the Clinton probe ended and how and why the Trump Russia probe began. Additionally, important questions have been raised with regards to FISA warrants targeting U.S. citizen Carter Page. We write you to urge you today to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate these decisions and activities.
Initially 13 GOP Reps total signed Zeldin’s letter.
In late March, Rep Lee Zeldin announced House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy both signed his letter demanding a second special counsel.
AG Sessions appointed a special prosecutor named John Huber to investigate Obama’s FISA abuse.
U.S. Attorney John Huber was first appointed to his position by Barack Obama in 2015.
