Bad news for Hillary Clinton. The House Judiciary Committee chair Bob Goodlatte is coming forward, and requesting over one million missing documents from the FBI. All of these documents relate to Clinton’s use of a private email server.
According to Goodlatte, if he does not receive the documents, he is planning to subpoena the federal spy agency.
Granted, Goodlatte has been waiting a long time to get ahold of these missing documents. On “Sunday Morning Futures,” Goodlatte told Maria Bartiromo that “the department and the bureau have been “slow, very slow, in getting them to us.”
During the last year, Michael Horowitz (the Department of Justice’s Inspector General) has been analyzing both the DOJ’s and the FBI’s actions around this investigation.
This investigation into Clinton’s use of her private email server is, of course, the ghost that’s been following Clinton around through the 2016 election (and beyond).
Horowitz made a suggestion that the report will be available for lawmakers to look over come April. Horowitz and his team have been interviewing dozens of people, and analyzing more than 1.2 million records. Still, he says that it is the classified information that is slowing down the investigation.
According to Horowitz’s team, Congress has only been able to get their hands on a “tiny percentage” of documents and texts that have been procured. Realistically, he says Congress has seen just about 3,000 of the total 1.2 million records.
