After FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that no criminal charges will be recommended against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while secretary of state, many are calling for further investigation into the matter.
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc), told Megyn Kelly Tuesday that House Republicans plan to question Comey concerning how he reached his conclusion not to recommend charges against Clinton.
Now, in an announcement by Congressional Republicans Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has also been called to answer questions about the Clinton investigation. Lynch has been in the public eye for her role in the Clinton investigation as the head of the Department of Justice, as well as for her widely criticized private meeting with Bill Clinton just days before the decision was announced.
Lynch faced heavy criticism from Republicans and even some Democrats for the meeting on the tarmac at Phoenix airport. Only days later, Lynch announced she would instead accept the recommendation of the FBI.
Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was outspoken against the secret meeting, writing on his Twitter page to express his frustration:
On Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said the FBI’s announcement in the Clinton email case, “raises serious questions” and is “uniquely troubling in light of Attorney General Lynch’s secret meeting with former President Bill Clinton.”
“No one is above the law and the American people need to know that federal law enforcement is taking this misconduct seriously,” Goodlatte said in a statement.
He continued, “I look forward to hearing from Attorney General Lynch and learning more about how she and the Justice Department are addressing these important issues.”
