Gowdy and Goodlatte get DOJ to agree to hand over docs on HILLARY CLINTON…

Gowdy and Goodlatte announced that they were able to get the DOJ to agree to hand over documents about why Hillary was let off the hook.

More from Fox News:

The Republican chairmen of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced Monday that the Justice Department has agreed to provide them with documents related to the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

The deal was struck after Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., met this month with the U.S. attorney, John Lausch, who has been selected to respond to Republican demands for documents.

“We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017,” Goodlatte and Gowdy said in a joint statement. “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”



Here’s the whole statement from Goodlatte:

Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) released the following statement after reaching an agreement with Department of Justice (DOJ) Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd and United States Attorney John Lausch to review and obtain documents and information pursuant to the Committees’ joint investigation into decisions made in 2016 and 2017.

“The Committees have reached an agreement with the Department of Justice to access the documents we have been requesting for months. We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”

Background:
• In October 2017, the Committees opened a joint investigation into the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017.
• In December 2017, the Committees sent a follow-up letter requesting documents and information regarding the FBI’s decision making in 2016 and 2017.
• On March 22, the House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to the Department of Justice for documents pursuant to the Committees’ joint investigation.
• On April 11, Chairman Goodlatte and Chairman Gowdy met with U.S. Attorney John Lausch to discuss the Committees’ access to documents related to our joint investigation.

I’m not so sure that it’s obvious that there’s any corruption here – maybe just bad judgment. But in case, hopefully Gowdy and Goodlatte will find something and deliver some substantive proof either way…
