Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is asking the Justice Department's inspector general to examine whether “high-ranking” DOJ and FBI officials “compromised the public trust in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server as Secretary of State and potential mishandling of classified material.”
Several of those high-ranking officials had previous ties to the Clintons, he said.
“The public’s lack of confidence in the Justice Department’s ability to handle investigations related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton impartially ought to be of grave concern for its leadership,” Grassley wrote. “The entire matter is in desperate need of independent, objective, non-partisan oversight. As the Inspector General, that is your statutory duty,” he told DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.
