Gowdy & Goodlatte: Why a Second Special Counsel Is Needed
Posted by Staff

GOP Reps. Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy are calling on Attorney General Sessions to appoint a new special counsel to investigate the FBI's actions during and after the 2016 election campaign, based on allegations of FISA abuse detailed in the Nunes memo. They discussed why in an interview Tuesday night with Bill Hemmer on FOX News Channel's 'Special Report'.

Goodlatte, the House Judiciary Committee chairman said of the FBI: "several people at the top of this organization have engaged in activities that are questionable."

Sessions announced last month that he was tasking Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate potential FISA abuses that took place, but Goodlatte and Gowdy say Horowitz does not have sufficient jurisdiction. Gowdy explains that there are up to 24 witnesses, including James Comey and Sydney Blumenthal who "he would not be able to access." Facebook iconFacebook Fark iconFark Furl iconFurl
