It looks as though The Democrats efforts to have Donald Trump removed from office because of unsubstantiated allegations regarding collusion with Russian agents to interfere in the 2016 presidential election may be about to back fire.House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Rep. Trey Gowdy yesterday demanded the appointment of a special counsel to investigate "conflicts of interest" and decisions "made and not made" by current and former Justice Department officials in 2016 and 2017, noting that "the public interest requires" the action.
Gowdy, R-S.C., and Goodlatte, R-Va., have written to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to advise that matters have arisen—both recently and otherwise, which necessitate the appointment of a Special Counsel. We do not make this observation and attendant request lightly,”
In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Gowdy and Goodlatte referred to the discovery of new information about events during and after the 2016 campaign as their reasoning behind calling for a second independent counsel.
"What changed for me was the knowledge that there are two dozen witnesses that Michael Horowitz, the [DOJ] Inspector General, would not have access to," Gowdy said. "When I counted up 24 witnesses that he would not be able to access were he to investigate it, yeah only one conclusion, that’s special counsel."
That list of witnesses included former FBI director James Comey, Gowdy confirmed
Last week, Sessions revealed that Horowitz is to investigate allegations of government surveillance abuse in light of memos released on Capitol Hill by the House Intelligence Committee which suggested, at least on the Republican side, that the dossier compiled by ex-U.K. intelligence officer Christopher Steele was used to obtain a FISA warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
"Absolutely, this whole FISA warrant was on Carter Page," Gowdy told Fox News.
Goodlatte agreed stating that the case on which the warrant was built was "highly suspect."
The lawmakers wrote, "There is evidence of bias, trending toward hostility, among those charged with investigating serious cases."
They added, "There is evidence political opposition research was used in court filings. There is evidence this political opposition research was neither vetted before it was used nor fully revealed to the relevant tribunal."
Both lawmakers said they didn’t know at this stage when or if a second counsel would be appointed at all.
Russiagate: FBI’s Steele story falls apart: False evidence was used to justify bugging Trump campaign
I think anyone reading this blog will remember the Skripal poisoning case and may be aware the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal had links with Christopher Steele, a one time UK ‘government asset’ who was commissioned by the US Democratic Party to discover or create evidence that would link Donald Trump to the Russian government and thus disqualify him from the presidency.
