House Republicans short-hand ended their investigation in the way of the FBI and the Department of Justice, Hillary Clinton E-Mail scandal and the bias-treatment-allegations against President Trump.
The house sample was passed through the house oversight and Government Reform Committee and the judiciary Committee and tried to look into allegations that the FBI and the justice Ministry is biased against Trump during the 2016 presidential elections and favors Clinton’s candidacy.
Two Republicans chair the committees – Reps. Trey Gowdy, R-S. C., and Robert Goodlatte, R-Va. – said in a letter Friday that the DOJ must investigate the appointment of a special counsel, the “seemingly” different treatment” of the investigation, Clinton’s use of private E-Mails, and Trump, his alleged relations with Russia.

The letter came less than a week before the Republicans lose formal control of the house, the Democrats, during which both Gowdy and Goodlatte of the policy in the rest.
The Democrats have long been the Republican-led criticized the probe as a distraction from Müller-Russia-investigation, with U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who sits on the house Intelligence Committee, mocked the Republicans for their unceremonious end of the probe.
“This is how the house Republican efforts to undermine Müller” investigate the investigators”. Not with a Bang, but with a Friday buried-in-the-holiday whimper, and a foot out of the door,” he wrote in a tweet.
But both Gowdy and Goodlatte reject criticism that their investigation will undermine the Mueller probe.
“Against Democrats and the media claimed, there was no effort to discredit the work of the special counsel,” they said. “Quite the contrary, what is also manufactured always product, due to the special counsel must be trusted by the Americans, and to ask the required tough but fair questions about investigative techniques, both professional and non-professional.”
The lawmakers sent the letter to the Ministry of justice and Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to say that their investigation “revealed troubling facts that exacerbated our initial questions and concerns.” The house investigation did not produce a complete final report of the Jury of the results.
Republicans say that top FBI officials were biased against then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016, addressed to Peter Strzok, the disgraced FBI official who was forced out by Robert Müller, the team, and later the Agency after his anti-Trump-text-messages with his colleague and lover, Lisa page revealed.

The couple exchanged more than 50,000 text messages about the 2016 presidential election, with many of them the expression of anti-Trump feelings. In a message, page Strzok asked if Trump could become President, and his answer: “no. No he is not. We will stop it.”
Goodlatte and Gowdy also refer to the report of the justice Department’s internal watchdog earlier this year that the claims Strzok anti-Trump SMS messages, raises questions about the Agency’s bias, while fired FBI Director James Comey, the log broke again and again.
The lawmakers also stress in the letter that the probe is in Clinton, is the use of E-Mails was too lenient, and admitted her misconduct, without adequate investigation of the controversy.
The letter urges the Congress to the investigations continue, said that “while the Congress does not have the power, the appointment of a special counsel, Congress has the power to investigate further,” and notes that “the facts revealed so far,” merit the continuation of the probe.
