27 House Republicans call for special counsel to investigate election in letter to Trump

27 House Republicans including Reps. Lance Gooden (TX), Paul Gosar (AZ), Louie Gohmert (TZ) , Thomas Massie (KY) and Ted Budd (NC) have signed a letter calling for Trump to direct Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate the election.

The letter says “The Department of Justice has been asked on multiple occasions to launch an investigation into this matter, but inaction from the department along with comments made by the attorney general indicate a lack of willingness to investigate the irregularities your campaign and other elected officials across the nation have alleged.”

Rep. Lance Gooden wrote Wednesday morning:

Last week, I asked that @realDonaldTrump instruct the Attorney General to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate election irregularities.

Now twenty-six Republican colleagues have joined me in calling for an independent investigation to restore faith in our elections!
