GOP Sens Push DOJ to Probe Hillary’s Ukraine Ties

Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., are pressing the Justice Department to investigate any connection between Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and Ukrainian operatives, citing “concerns about foreign assistance in the 2016 election that have not been thoroughly addressed.”

Grassley and Johnson are also seeking information on any information the DOJ has received from Ukraine tied to Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden.

The move comes as Democrats begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump following the release of a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy where Trump asked for help in investigating Biden and his son, Hunter. In the days before the call, Trump ordered advisers freeze nearly $400 million in military aid for Ukraine.

“The Justice Department has yet to inform Congress and the public whether it has begun an investigation into links and coordination between the Ukrainian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee. . . . Such allegations of corruption deserve due scrutiny,” Johnson and Grassley wrote in the letter to Attorney General William Barr.

“Ukrainian efforts, abetted by a U.S. political party, to interfere in the 2016 election should not be ignored,” the two senators wrote in the letter dated Sept. 27. “Are you investigating links and coordination between the Ukrainian government and individuals associated with the campaign of Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee? If not, why not?”

  1. TELL THE DOJ TO GET OFF THEIR BUTTS BEFORE THE NUMBER OF DEMOCRATS NEEDING TO BE CHARGED WILL TAKE A LIFETIME,,,,AND Hillary Clinton IS WAY OVERDUE FOR INDICTMENT ALONG WITH THE ALMOST ENTIRE Obama Administration!

  2. NOTICE: Has anybody besides me noticed since Congresses 6 week vacation, Nancy Pelosi’s face has been tightened to the point when she went live on tv she could barely move her lips and eyelids seldom moved. To make this story more interesting she and AOC were on a joint venture overseas together during the recess and now AOC comes back with a much smaller upper lip?? Are birds of a feather flocking together?

  3. I am one of the ones who was taught to support the duly elected president no matter which party, even if I didn’t vote for him. The president is like a team quarterback, and in order to win all the teammates need to help – help win. Can you imagine the results if team players -Congress- did everything they could to obstruct the quarterback? This is happening though.

  4. As a conservative, I have begun to become disgusted with the wimpy Republican Party. With just a handful of Republicans who are really trying to protect and support the president, it seems that the rest are just sitting around waiting for the left to give them orders. While I will admit this isn’t new, it certainly seems amplified now that Trump is in office. Where are the Republicans? Why aren’t they pushing back? Why aren’t they going after the lawbreakers that started this whole mess in 2015? I feel that if they can’t do their job they need to step aside and let us get some younger more determined conservatives in that will work to uphold our laws and our Constitution.
