A trio of House conservatives, who have succeeded in getting the Judiciary Committee to keep questioning the FBI’s 2015-2016 probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, have sent a letter to the bureau asking for more answers before Director Christopher A. Wray next testifies.
The letter grew out of emails from October 2016, first released this month after requests by the conservative group Judicial Watch, in which FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe said that the email probe was “referred to as ‘special,’” which limited his access to it. That email grew out of yet another round of Clinton questions — a controversy, in the weeks before the election, about whether McCabe should have recused himself because Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.), a Clinton ally, helped McCabe’s wife raise money for a state senate race.
