                               RESOLUTION


 
  Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that a special 
counsel should be appointed by the Attorney General or his designee to 
  investigate misconduct by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and 
  former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James B. Comey with 
   regard to the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary 
 Clinton for mishandling of classified data and use of an unauthorized 
                             email server.

    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
a special counsel should be appointed by the Attorney General or his 
designee to investigate the following:
            (1) Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing James B. 
        Comey to mislead the American people by stating that he should 
        refer to the investigation into the mishandling of classified 
        data and use of an unauthorized email server by former 
        Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a ``matter'', rather than 
        a criminal ``investigation''.
            (2) Leaks by James B. Comey to Columbia University law 
        professor, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations had between 
        President Donald Trump and then-FBI Director James B. Comey, 
        and how the leaked information was purposefully released to 
        lead to the appointment of special counsel, Robert Mueller, a 
        longtime friend of James B. Comey.
            (3) The propriety and consequence of immunity deals given 
        to possible Hillary Clinton co-conspirators Cheryl Mills, 
        Heather Samuelson, John Bentel, and potentially others, by the 
        Federal Bureau of Investigation, during the criminal 
        investigation James B. Comey led into Hillary Clinton's 
        misconduct.
            (4) The decision by James B. Comey to usurp the authority 
        of then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in his unusual 
        announcement that criminal charges would not be brought against 
        Hillary Clinton following her unlawful use of a private email 
        server and mishandling of classified information.
            (5) James B. Comey's knowledge and impressions of any ex-
        parte conversation between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch 
        and former President Bill Clinton on June 27, 2016, at a 
        Phoenix airport on a private jet.
            (6) James B. Comey's knowledge of the company ``Fusion 
        GPS'', including--
                    (A) its creation of a ``dossier'' of information 
                about Mr. Donald Trump;
                    (B) that dossier's commission and dissemination in 
                the months before and after the 2016 Presidential 
                Election; and
                    (C) the intelligence sources of Fusion GPS or any 
                person or company working for Fusion GPS or its 
                affiliates.
            (7) Any and all potential leaks originated by James B. 
        Comey and provided to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 
        1993.
            (8) James B. Comey's knowledge of--
                    (A) the purchase of a majority stake in the company 
                Uranium One by the company Rosatom;
                    (B) whether the approval of the sale was connected 
                to any donations made to the Clinton Foundation;
                    (C) what role then-Secretary of State Hillary 
                Clinton played in the approval of that sale; and
                    (D) whether the sale could have affected the 
                national security of the United States of America.
            (9) James B. Comey's refusal to investigate then-Secretary 
        of State Hillary Clinton regarding--
                    (A) selling access to the U.S. State Department 
                through Clinton Foundation donations;
                    (B) Huma Abedin's dual employment at the State 
                Department and the Clinton Foundation simultaneously; 
                or
                    (C) utilization of the State Department to further 
                paid speaking opportunities for her husband.
            (10) Any collusion between former FBI Director James B. 
        Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller; including--
                    (A) the information James B. Comey admitted to 
                leaking to the Columbia University law professor, being 
                intentional such that a special counsel, his longtime 
                friend, Robert Mueller, would be appointed to lead the 
                investigation against the Trump administration; and
                    (B) any communication between Robert Mueller and 
                James B. Comey in advance of the Senate Intelligence 
                Committee hearing.
            (11) Whether James B. Comey had any knowledge of--

                        the unmasking of these individuals; or
                            (iv) to reveal the purpose served by 
                        unmasking any individual or individuals serving 
                        on the staff of then-candidate Donald Trump; or
                    (B) the dissemination of unredacted information to
