Republican Sen. John Cornyn sent a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Friday, asking why her office declined to open an investigation into the Clinton Foundation, The Washington Times reported.

He'd like her answers by Aug. 25.

According to the Times, the second-highest ranking senator from Texas had some other inquiries for Lynch as well:
  • Is it true the Justice Dept. rejected the FBI's push to investigate the Foundation?
  • Which State Department employees were also working for the Foundation?
  • Did Lynch and former president Bill Clinton discuss Foundation matters during their private airplane meeting?
"As the press have reported widely and emails released over the past few days confirmed, representatives of the Foundation repeatedly sought special treatment for its donors and associates from senior officials at the State Department," Cornyn wrote to Lynch, according to the Times. "This kind of conduct is unacceptable."

Cornyn's letter comes on the same day as a report saying the FBI, in conjunction with various U.S. Attorneys offices, has launched investigations into the Clinton Foundation.
