GOP Senators Look Into FBI's Handling of Clinton Investigation
GOP Senators are asking the Justice Department to look into the FBI's handling of classified information related to the Hillary Clinton investigation.

Apparently, the FBI failed to investigate information related to Clinton and the Senators want to know why.

According to The Daily Caller:

The Republican chairmen of three Senate committees are pressing Attorney General William Barr for details about “highly classified information” that the FBI declined to investigate as part of the Hillary Clinton email probe.

According to the Republicans, the FBI drafted a memo in May 2016 saying that the information was “necessary” to complete the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server.

But as the Justice Department inspector general found in a report released last year, the FBI declined to take up the matter before closing the Clinton investigation in July 2016.


The inspector general’s finding “raises significant issues associated with the FBI’s failure to review certain highly classified information in support of its Midyear investigation,” reads the letter to Barr, signed by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, the chairmen of the Senate Judiciary, Finance and Homeland Security Committees, respectively.

The Senators have asked for an explanation from the Justice Department recently but were denied due to the Mueller investigation. Now that the investigation is over, they want answers.
