House letter details potential perjury charge against Clinton over emails

The HillA 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.

Make no mistake, this is a political act. The Department of (In)Justice has already declared that it will not act on the various criminal offenses that Hillary's email setup produced. It will certainly not act on a letter from the other party's House members requesting a prosecution. The purpose of the letter is to convince the public to reject Clinton in the November elections, and perhaps to publicly humiliate the Obama administration for their openly political decision not to prosecute.

It's pretty effective, too, as it manages to highlight a number of times where Clinton's testimony flatly contradicts the facts as determined by the FBI.

What's it's not going to do -- and everyone knows, at this point, that it won't -- is convince the FBI and DOJ to actually issue an indictment. Hillary will win or lose the election, and that will be that. The fate of our republic will lie in the hands of the people.

We are so screwed.
