Devin Nunes is giving Christopher Wray and Rod Rosenstein until 5 PM on Monday to supply his committee with the starting date when the spying began against President Trump.
The official date of the investigation is July 31st but there is ample evidence that spying began before that date. Rep Nunes wants the exact date that spying began. Something tells me they won’t give it to him or they will send something redacted beyond recognition. I don’t believe they can tell the truth and survive. There were multiple contacts between the spies and Trump campaign officials that occurred before the official date given.
The new request seeks clarification on whether Rosenstein or FBI Director Christopher Wray is responsible for complying with the panel’s subpoenas. Additionally, he is demanding the FBI confirm informants were used to gather information on the Trump campaign and, if so, how many were used and how much money was spent on the operations.
House Republicans have been at loggerheads with the DOJ and the FBI for months over their failure to comply with subpoenas issued by Nunes and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
The FBI on Friday sent the House intel committee two letters, one classified and the other unclassified, partially complying with a subpoena issued by the panel.
“While the late-night letters, once again received by the Committee just before the deadline, address many of the questions outlined in the Committee’s outstanding subpoenas, they have raised more questions than answers,” Nunes wrote in the letter Sunday. “These questions include whether the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) leadership intend to obey the law and fully comply with duly authorized congressional subpoenas.”
There has been too many threats and not enough action. Unless you follow up your threats you become a joke. It’s time to decide if you are going to make the FBI and the DOJ obey the constitution or not. November is right around the corner.
