Hillary Clinton is kicking Donald Trump’s backside from coast to coast, so it is not surprising that House Republicans are now demanding that the Department of Justice investigate Clinton for perjury.
The Hill reported:
A pair of leading House Republicans on Monday laid out detailed instructions for the Justice Department to file perjury charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
More than a month after first requesting the department open a criminal probe into Clinton for alleged misstatements she made under oath, the GOP heads of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees told a federal prosecutor specifically where they believed Clinton had lied to Congress about her email setup at the Department of State.
The perjury investigation is never going to happen, and the fact that they would call for a perjury investigation illustrates how deep the abuse of power culture runs in the Republican House.
Donald Trump is sinking like a rock. Things have gotten so bad for Trump that there are more red states that he could potentially lose (Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, Utah, and Indiana) than blue states for him to flip (0).
Donald Trump is getting beaten from sea to shining sea by the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the GOP nominee is showing expertise only in personal ineptitude, so House Republicans are trying to save their party by creating a new Hillary Clinton scandal.
Their ploy isn’t going to work.
Republicans have been misusing their investigative powers for years in an attempt to stop Hillary Clinton from winning the White House. The call for a perjury investigation is the next step for an increasingly desperate party that is drowning with the Trump anchor snugly strapped around their necks.
