“The Republicans have spoken, to grant directly to this Person, while refusing to Democratic access of the members, despite repeated requests,” the high-ranking members of the house oversight and intelligence committees, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in a statement. “At the same time, the Republicans have been wild and unfounded accusations against Secretary of state Clinton on national television based on this individual information.”
Cummings and the ship said that the Ministry of justice a “detailed briefing” , “speak in directly, this Republican allegations.”
Cummings and ship said, Campbell never any evidence or accusations related to Clinton or the Clinton Foundation, in each of your interactions with him.
The senior members claimed that the justice explained to the Ministry that “any time [the individual] any allegation of corruption, illegality or irregularity in Clinton, said Clinton Foundation, President Clinton, the Uranium One deal, or CFIUS,” and that there were “no allegations of immorality or illegality” on Clinton in the documents reviewed.

“Just this week, the Committee made it clear that this secret informant charade was just a charade.
