House Republicans have renewed calls for a second special counsel to look into abuses committed by FBI, DOJ, NSA, and other top law enforcement agencies against the Trump campaign in an effort to aid the Clinton presidential bid.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise are among the Republicans on board with the recent callings, with evidence building to make their case over the past year. The most recent discovery was the Inspector General’s findings while investigating the FBI, leading to the firing of Andrew McCabe.
House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to consider their request. When asked about it by Fox News’ Shannon Bream, Sessions answered by saying he will, in fact, “consider it.”
