Eleven House Republicans are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to prosecute a handful of individuals, including former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, ex-FBI Director James Comey, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
In a Wednesday letter to Sessions, FBI Director Chris Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber — who was appointed to investigate GOP claims of FBI misconduct — the lawmakers refer Comey and McCabe for “investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes.”
Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and FBI General Counsel Dana Boente are also named in the letter.
Former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team before being found to have anti-Trump bias, are also referred by the lawmakers, who are led by Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Comey is named first, and the lawmakers say the Justice Department should investigate him for perjury and making false statements to Congress about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server.
McCabe should be charged for “lack of candor,” the lawmakers said.
The lawmakers say Comey, McCabe, Yates, and Boente are all referred because they signed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA warrant, to wiretap former Trump aide Carter Page.
