Sen. Marco Rubio Joins Others in Call for IG to Investigate DEA’s Haiti Office

Sen. Marco Rubio has joined the chorus of politicians calling for an investigation into the DEA’s Haiti office following allegations of potential whistle-blower retaliation and mishandling of personnel matters, the Miami Herald reports.

“Allegations of whistle-blower retaliation and personnel issues are extremely concerning and, if true, are counterproductive to the DEA’s critical mission in the Caribbean,” Rubio said in a letter his office sent on Wednesday to U.S. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

In May, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, and Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the committee, wrote to Horowitz asking him to review the allegations. The committee, the letter said, had received information that raised questions about the effectiveness of the DEA’s drug investigations in Haiti, the Herald writes.

Rudy Giuliani Attacks GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy For Defending FBI

Hoping to bowel over anyone who gets in their way, Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump’s latest attack dog, is going after Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, who defended the FBI’s use of a confidential source to investigate potential Russian outreach to individuals connected to Trump’s presidential campaign.

“He’s drinking the Kool-Aid,” Giuliani tells CNN.

Giuliani didn’t stop there.

He went on to criticize Gowdy over his handling of a Republican-led investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack.  Gowdy oversaw the investigation as chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

“I never understood what he did with Benghazi either. He really screwed that up. I don’t know what he was doing,” Giuliani said.

The Republican chairman of the House Select Committee, which is investigating the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Libya, is mincing no words about his colleagues in Congress who are speculating about the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton.

The Boston Herald reports that Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, told his colleagues to “shut up” about the case and let the FBI investigate.

“Everything I have heard about (FBI Director) Jim Comey tells me he is a straight arrow,” Gowdy said on Boston Herald Radio. “I am going to give him the room to do his investigation. He is not supposed to tell anyone what he is doing, he is not supposed to tell anyone what’s found and I wish my colleagues would shut up talking about the FBI investigation because this an executive branch entity.

“It should be a decidedly apolitical investigation and I’m convinced that’s what (Comey) wants to do,” the Republican congressman added.

The news comes after the White House confirmed Friday that 22 “top secret” emails were found on Clinton’s home server.

Clinton has denied she sent or received classified information on her personal e-mail account.

“The documents are being upgraded at the request of the intelligence community because they contain a category of top secret information,” State Department spokesman John Kirby told the Associated Press, adding the move was “not unusual.”
