The letter outlines accusations against Clinton and several former and current members of the FBI and Justice Department. The allegations largely relate to the lead-up to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Conservatives since the 2016 campaign have accused nearly every individual listed of being biased against Trump or in favor of Clinton.

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,” the lawmakers wrote. 

The letter was addressed to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney John Huber, the latter of which was appointed last month to lead an investigation into Republicans' allegations that the FBI and DOJ abused a surveillance program against a former Trump campaign aide.

Several of the Republicans who signed Wednesday’s letter also previously urged Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate Clinton.

A number of conservative lawmakers have called for an investigation into Clinton over the course of the past year. Many of those same representatives have argued the Justice Department is infected with a bias against Trump.
