WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans say more investigation is needed into decisions made by the FBI and the Justice Department in 2016. This, as they brought an unceremonious end to a yearlong look at the department’s handling of probes into Hillary Clinton’s emails and Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.
In a letter released Friday evening, the chairmen of two House committees described what they said was the “seemingly disparate treatment” the two probes received during the presidential election in 2016. They asked the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate further.
Democrats have criticized the GOP-led congressional probe, saying it was merely meant as a distraction from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
