(National Sentinel)Â Showdown: House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has proven in recent months that when he’s serious about holding Deep State operatives in the Justice Department and FBI in contempt over their refusal to comply with subpoenas, he’s gotten results.
Fed up with the behavior of careerists who still seem to think that Obama is president, Nunes has given the DoJ and FBIÂ one day to comply with a subpoena demandingÂ all information from the bureau’s “Spygate” operation to place ‘informants’ inside the 2016 Trump campaign.
As reported byÂ Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has given the Justice Department until Tuesday to provide access to documents concerning the FBIâ€™s alleged informant looking into any Russian ties to President Trumpâ€™s 2016 campaign.
In a letter sent Friday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes said the records should be provided to all committee members â€œand designated staffâ€ rather than just the so-called â€œGang of Eightâ€ â€” which refers to Republican and Democratic leaders in both houses of Congress as well as top lawmakers from the intelligence panels.
â€œDOJ continues to obfuscate and delay its production using an array of tactics, such as incorrectly categorizing the requested documents as Gang-of-Eight-level material in order to limit access,â€ wrote Nunes, referring to an April 30 subpoena for the documents.
â€œSuch conduct by DOJ is unacceptable because the Gang-of-Eight is a legal fiction that has no basis outside of the confines of Presidential approval and reporting of covert actions.â€
Nunes also wrote, â€œYour continued refusal to permit Members of Congress and designated staff to review the requested documents is obstruction of a lawful Congressional investigation.â€
Nunes’ committee has issuedÂ two subpoenas and has attended two briefings that providedÂ no information at all.
He’s had enough. So too, most likely, has POTUS Trump.
