Now More Than Ever, AG Loretta Lynch Should Appoint A Special Counsel In Clinton Email Case

In the past week, we’ve learned two critical facts in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.  First and foremost, an email has surfaced in which Hillary Clinton seemingly instructs a member of her senior staff to break the law.  Secondly, we now know the FBI has expanded its investigation of Hillary Clinton to include a public corruption aspect having to do with how her State Department interfaced with her family foundation. 

This has led to speculation that the FBI will almost certainly recommend criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Loretta Lynch should do herself a favor and take this all-important decision out of the hands of Democrat political appointees at the Justice Department and admit what everyone already knows - that she has a clear conflict of interest in this case. By appointing an impartial special counsel, Loretta Lynch would be putting the justice system and the rule of law above politics.

Citizens United first called for a special counsel on July 29, 2015.

Breitbart: Citizens United Video Compares Bill Clinton To Bill Cosby

The conservative nonprofit group Citizens United is comparing Bill Clinton’s lurid history with women to that of accused serial rapist Bill Cosby.

Clinton, who has been photographed schmoozing with Cosby on multiple occasions, is coming under fire for his alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick in the 1970s.

Broaddrick said in a tweet to this reporter that she was audited in 2000, while Clinton was president, and she has also claimed that Hillary Clinton tried to intimidate and silence her to prevent political fallout from the alleged crime. Similarly, a female New Hampshire state legislator who confronted Hillary Clinton over the Broaddrick allegations was intimidated by the Secret Service and is now getting threats on her safety and the safety of her children.

The Citizens United video uses audio of Broaddrick describing the alleged rape scene to Breitbart’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein. In her first interview in nearly a decade, Broaddrick spoke exclusively on Klein’s weekend talk radio program in November.

Cosby, meanwhile, is on trial for allegedly drugging a woman and taking advantage of her sexually. The onetime “Kids Say The Darndest Things” star has been accused by numerous women of similar acts.

National Review: House Republicans Push Lynch to Name Special Prosecutor in Clinton Probe

Forty-four House Republicans called for a special prosecutor to investigate the scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server in a letter hand-delivered to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday.

“Members of the military and intelligence communities have been — and continue to be — prosecuted for infractions potentially less egregious,” Representative Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.) said in a statement. “Secretary Clinton is not above the rule of law. It is critically important that this investigation is conducted impartially and that the decision to prosecute does not hinge on political considerations.”

Washington Examiner: 44 lawmakers demand special counsel in Clinton email probe

ObserverNews: De Blasio Laments Citizens United While His Campaign Nonprofit Benefits From It

Following increasing criticism over his use of a shadowy nonprofit, the Campaign for One New York, to promote his progressive agenda, Mayor Bill de Blasio wished today for Citizens United to be struck down–but implied he was fine with continuing to reap the rewards of the Supreme Court decision.

“I think it’s really important to look at the laws that govern us and I would like to see a very, very different world but we’re not in that world yet,” Mr. de Blasio told reporters at City Hall. “I believe there should be a constitutional amendment to reverse the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court.”

Daily Caller: Citizens United Probing New Faces In Hillary’s World

A conservative watchdog group is demanding copies of official documents about the activities of key operatives linked to Hillary Clinton, some of whom have previously escaped attention in the continuing investigations of the former Secretary of State’s relations with her family’s foundation and her use of a private email and server for official business.

Citizens United filed seven new Freedom of Information Act requests recently seeking communications among Clinton’s State Department aides and officials with the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and Teneo, a global consulting firm whose principals are long-time Clinton associates.

“These latest FOIA requests by Citizens United are an extension of our investigation based on what we’ve gleaned from the documents we’ve received to date,” Citizens United President David N. Bossie told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “We are learning more about how the State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and Teneo operated and what it may mean.”

Breitbart: PAUL RYAN’S FORK IN THE ROAD

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has an opportunity as the new Speaker of the House, but it’s going to take courage to stand up to the failed status quo in Washington. He’s well equipped to make the pivot, if he’s willing to show some guts. He’s already seen firsthand what failed business as usual on Capitol Hill looks like, where things like trillion dollar backroom deals, more debt, no real debate, and less accountability have become the order of the day. The dismal record of the past seven years has caused enough frustration to force millions of Americans to give up hope on the idea that government can make competent decisions.

As soon as Paul Ryan gets handed the Speaker’s gavel, he’s going to arrive at a fork in the road. One direction is the easy path forward, which is more of the same; bowing to President Obama’s threats, legislating from crisis to crisis, and punishing Members for voting their conscience. The other direction is much more difficult. That direction calls for seizing the initiative by making Congress once again a co-equal branch of government. The conservative majority in the House of Representatives can re-assume control of the public policy debate in this country.

The Washington Times: Bill Clinton scored paid speeches while Hillary made official State Dept. visits

Back when they occupied the White House, Bill and Hillary Clinton boasted that Americans “got two for the price of one.” The folks in Ireland have a good sense now what that actually costs.

As Irish businesses were arranging for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to make one of her last official visits to Ireland in December 2012, her husband, Bill, suddenly landed a half-million speaking gig for his foundation on the Emerald Island, according to newly released emails from the conservative group Citizens United that show the business of State and the business of Bill were often intertwined.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE - CITIZENS UNITED POLL: NAME A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE HILLARY CLINTON

A new poll from Citizens United, conducted among two thousand members between October 16 and October 20, shows overwhelming support for both the work of the House Benghazi Committee and the appointment of an impartial special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Respondents approved of the House Benghazi Committee’s investigation by an overall margin of 91 percent to 7 percent, with nearly 82 percent strongly approving.

IBTIMES: Hillary Clinton Citizens United Schedules FOIA Lawsuit: Conservative Group Sues To See Candidate's State Department Itinerary

Hillary Clinton’s emails are not the only record of her time in the U.S. Department of State that people are requesting to see. Citizens United, the conservative organization best known for its Supreme Court case on campaign finance, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit Monday demanding to see Clinton’s schedules from her time as the nation’s top diplomat.

The group in March filed a FOIA request for the schedules with the State Department, according to Politico. But while the department said it would “expedite” the request, Citizens United has not received a response.
