Top House Republicans are demanding answers from an attorney, who’s looking into allegations of surveillance abuse at the Department of Justice and the FBI.
On Monday, GOP lawmakers on two House committees sent a letter to U.S. attorney John Huber asking for an update on the nine month probe regarding claims of abuse when the two agencies obtained warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
Republicans are saying during interviews with several former Department of Justice and FBI personnel, none of them mentioned having been contacted by Huber.
That attorney is tasked with determining whether their accusations warrant an investigation.
The committees’ own GOP-led probe wrapped-up last month, where they determined both the FBI and Department of Justice treated then-candidate Donald Trump unfairly.
