We Need a Special Counsel to Investigate 'Potential Crimes' by FBI, DOJ

When the House's resolution reached the Senate, Grahamblocked it, saying that there first needs to be a special counsel appointed to investigate "the abuses, potentially, by the Department of Justice and the FBI regarding the Clinton email investigation". Again, it's worth noting that most of the meatier coverage came from Trump-friendly outlets like Fox News.
But more important, and perhaps more damning in an honest nation's capital, was Page's assertion that a probe into Clinton's "gross negligence" regarding her clandestine home email server was quashed by the Obama administration. In contrast, when we look into what could have (and perhaps should have) been the investigation into possible collusion between Hillary Clinton's campaign and Barack Obama's Justice Department to cover up Clinton's misdeeds, we get mere droplets of information generally reported only by conservative-leaning outlets.
The House unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's final report to be made public. The core of the allegations was that Clinton may have broken the law by allowing classified information be sent through her private unsecure channels. "It is further evidence that, contrary to the impression that the President's allies in Congress tried to create with their selective and often inaccurate leaks, Pete at all times discharged his duties honorably, patriotically, and without regard to his personal political opinions".
Both Page and Strzok no longer work at the FBI - Page resigned and Strzok was sacked.
President Trump has taken notice of the discrepancy. Strzok said he believed that to be the case. Notably, Page also said that the DOJ had "multiple conversations ... about charging gross negligence", but decided that "they did not feel they could sustain a charge" because they considered the term "constitutionally vague". On Twitter Friday, the president cited reports from One America News about new evidence the Obama-era Justice Department was working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency to spy on the Trump campaign team as early as 2015.
