Grassley Hints At DOJ Coverup In Letter Asking Comey For More Info

Source: Talking Points Memo

In a letter Monday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) asked FBI Director James Comey for more information about his Friday announcement that the agency is looking into emails "pertinent" to its investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state.

Grassley also suggested that the Justice Department may have withheld investigative tools from the FBI, undermining its ability to investigate Clinton's server.

"If the FBI is denied the ability to gather evidence through compulsory means, Secretary Clinton and her aides have enormous leverage to negotiate extraordinary concessions in exchange for voluntary cooperation," he wrote. Grassley said that his concerns were "magnified" by the lack of detail in Comey's letter.

"Needless to say, it is disturbing if political appointees at the Department of Justice are inappropriately withholding compulsory tools from the FBI, forcing agents to depend on a subject or targetís consent to gather evidence, which undercuts the FBIís ability to do its job and ultimately obtain justice," Grassley wrote.

7. Grassley as empty as Comey's non-evidence and Chaffetz's non-outcome

Comey did not say "Case reopened."

Chaffetz did. Chaffetz added that conclusion to the non-evidence.

This is a manufactured crisis, a shouting campaign just like Benghazi!

Put them all in jail.

11. This email thingy

wouldn't be a thingy at all if repugs weren't pushing this for months, years? I don't think the FBI would have bothered with an investigation knowing that though she was following the bad advise of Powel she did not do anything illegal. They caved to the corporate terrorist organization called the GOP.

14. All of these "investigations" will magically disappear....

if Hillary is defeated. Although the CONald has said he's going to have her incarcerated, so I guess you never know. Of course, for the dramatic effect he'd probably first have a "trial" to throughly humiliate her. He's all about revenge and degradation - winning is not enough.
