The U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber will not testify this evening before Congressman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and the House Oversight subcommittee as previously announced.
Huber had been assigned by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies Republicans have raised about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, many of them stoked by right-wing activists who believe she should be prosecuted.
U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight’s subcommittee on government operations, had hoped Huber would provide an update on his probe.
“Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation — at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th,” he told Hill.TV previously.
Meadows had wanted to quiz Huber on whether any of the Clinton Foundation’s tax-exempt money was used for personal gain, as well as a litany of other conservative allegations against Clinton, such as the State Department’s approval of a uranium deal with Russia.
Once the next session of Congress is sworn in, Democrats will assume the majority on the Oversight Committee, lead by Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-M.D.).
Instead of focusing on Clinton, expect Oversight and Government Reform to hone in on potential malfeasance by the White House and federal agencies and alleged voter suppression.
