Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) turned up the heat this week after calling for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to hand over unredacted documents related to the agency’s Russia witch hunt.
Sara Carter previously reported:
Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA, sent the letter to Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray warning them that their lack of compliance with the committee’s original Aug. 24, 2017 subpoena to turn over all requested documents could result in “the Committee pursuing all appropriate legal remedies, including seeking civil enforcement” in a federal district court. The committee gave the FBI and DOJ until April 11 to turn over all the documentation requested.
The request for the un-redacted version of the originating “electronic communication” is new and it reveals that the committee is looking into the FBI’s initiation of the investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. The document would be a detailed report of the FBI’s reasoning to move forward with the investigation into the Trump campaign after the bureau was informed by Australian authorities of a conversation Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos had with one of their diplomats at a London bar.
The FBI and DOJ have been stonewalling House Intel Chairman Nunes and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte after they have repeatedly requested the agencies for documents related to how the Russia investigation began in the first place.
It is very clear the FBI and DOJ are hiding their criminal actions.
We already know Obama’s criminal and corrupt FBI and DOJ used Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier as a pretext to illegally spy on Trump’s campaign.
“To this date, the Department has only produced a fraction of the documents that have been requested,” Goodlatte wrote to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“Given the Department’s ongoing delays in producing these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue enclosed subpoena to compel production of these documents,” Goodlatte continued.
Leaker, liar and shill for Putin, Adam Schiff (D-CA) lashed out at Chairman Nunes for aggressively seeking the unredacted documents.
Politico reported Schiff said in a statement, “With their most recent letter, the majority is continuing, and indeed ramping up, their counterinvestigations solely designed to attack the FBI and DOJ in an effort to undermine Robert Mueller and protect the president at all costs,” Schiff said. “This may suit President Trump, but it is a grave disservice to the country and our law enforcement and intelligence agencies.”
The House Intel Committee ended their Russia probe last month after concluding there was no collusion between Donald Trump and the Russians during the 2016 presidential election.
