Nunes blasts DOJ, FBI for ‘failure’ to produce records relating to anti-Trump dossier

December 29, 2017

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is blasting the Department of Justice and the FBI for its “failure to fully produce” documents related to an anti-Trump dossier, saying “at this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves.”

In a Thursday letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein obtained by Fox News, Nunes expressed frustration that information and witnesses subpoenaed by the committee in August related to the so-called Steele dossier had not yet been turned over. The salacious dossier includes unverified allegations about President Trump’s connections with Russia that he has denied.

“Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI’s intransigence with respect to the August 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated,” the California Republican wrote to Rosenstein.

Nunes demanded that all records – and available dates for witnesses to testify – be provided to the committee by Jan 3.

    Most of the documents requested are forms that were filled out months or over a year ago. Literally, all they had to do was make a copy of these forms and hand them over! Most of the rest were subpoenaed witnesses who the FBI hasn’t made available since AUGUST. This is clearly a cover up and obstruction of justice.

      Yes, it’s a cover up. Many of the e-mails have been blacked out.

    Good luck on obtaining any information from anyone within the FBI in regard to obtaining records or issuing subpoenas to witnesses from within this agency…These Gestapo minded “dirty” cops believe they are above the law and can do what they want and or to whom they want…There is no over sight on what the FBI does…Like Hitler’s “Gestapo” the FBI is answerable to no one…This is how the FBI obtained FISA warrants against the Trump team…they knew the “dossier” compiled by a dubious foreign agent was “fake”…but the “fakery” was what they needed to open the doors of the DOJ for a FISA warrant and for for a special consul to be appointed and over seen by one of their own…that being ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller…One “dirty” cop has been expelled from Mueller team…everyone on Mueller teams should be expelled…First off everyone on Mueller team is a Democrat…not one Republican has been selected as a member of Mueller’s investigative team…speaking of more conflict of interest we have half a dozen attorney’s who worked in one capacity or another for Hillary Clinton…there is even one attorney who works for the Clinton Foundation…There are an additional half dozen big buck donors to the Hillary campaign in Mueller team…to include another half dozen or so of Hillary supporters during her campaign for the presidency…That being said the whole SC Robert Mueller team has be corrupted…Mueller’s team is nothing more than an “extension” of the “deep state” and the shadow government of which they belong…Further more “Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by Congress, the President, or the people. Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state…The important point to remember about this group is not its ideology but its organization…It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government…This group is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, not the courts…It is practically irremovable.”—Senator William Jenner (1954) speaking of the “deep state” i.e. America’s “Shadow Government”…which includes the agencies of the FBI…the CIA…and the NSA.

      Is this the head of the INTELLIGENCE committee in congress? How stupid for him not to know the FBI doesn’t release sources of intel. OR, he’s simply trying to conceal (badly) how partisan he is trying to protect Trump who he knows is at the apex of the racketeering/mafia family bilking America of money (failure of Trump to divest his interests under the law), selling our world leadership out to the Russians (who hold his real estate debt bigtime and the reason he doesn’t release his tax returns for proof) and maybe launders money of top Russian oligarchs (via their purchasing his ‘for sale’ real estate at exorbitantly high prices). It’s transparent obstruction of congressional investigatory acts, blocking of congressional inquiries to produce articles of impeachment for Constitutional and legal lawbreaking (as Trump has done his whole career in New York real estate deals). Maybe articles of impeachment should be drawn for Nunes for treason, abetting Trump’s collusion with Putin and company.

    One of the three legs of the progressive stool is that the constitution is too limiting for the nation to be governed efficiently. They have been quite successful in finding ways around it ever since. The big bureaucracies, including the FBI, CIA, IRS, HHS, and a bunch of others, that form the deep state, are all creations of periods when the progressives were in power. They are independent governing bodies skirting the three branches making their own laws, policing those laws and adjudicating the violators. Most of these were created during the terms of FDR, LBJ and BHO. And to some extent WJC. But the bill of rights has been a real stumbling block. If Trump is unable to reign these entities in and control them according to the constitution we may all be in trouble.

      I have been saying, yelling, writing and emailing for many years about what is commonly called the “alphabet agencies”. Most are populated by liberal “lifer” bureaucrats that have no allegiance to America but to the leftist agenda of the democrat communist party. Most of all government civil service is and has been a “jobs program” for the progressive movement. There are people that should never and probably could never pass the simple background check us ordinary folks are required to pass just to exercise out Second Amendment Rights. All government civil service needs to be totally reformed and current people need to be background checked annually. If this were done the taxpayers would find out just how huge the costs are for civil service workers to do the same jobs that people in the private sector do at half the cost. DEMAND A FULL ACCOUNTING OF G.C.S IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHYYOUR TAXES ARE SO HIGH. Go into any post office or DMV and watch what goes on there. I sent a single first class letter from Chicago to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada which is about 300 miles north of Seattle. It took 29 days to be delivered. When I tried to get an answer from the postal service all I received was “snotty attitude” like it was none of my business. And the postal service runs tens of millions of dollars on TV commercials bragging about their fantastic service. Never even got a reasonable response when I filed an online complaint.

    The Democrat controlled FBI and the DOJ have been Obamanized. Both corrupt agencies need a giant enema!

      Head of the FBI is appointed by the President, the AG is appointed by the President but because they won’t do his bidding they are bad. The claim that the left controls both is pure BS, if they in fact did it’s the head of those agencies that should be blamed as well as the man who appointed them. As far as the FBI and DOJ not helping congress on their witch hunts, maybe their time is better spent investigating real crimes and keeping America safe. Devin Nunes is a not looking for truth, he is trying to dig up mud to throw. His sole job is to try to make the democrats look bad. This whole thing is a big waste of tax dollars. Close the committee and go write bills that help the nation. It’s not like ant legislation will come out of the hearings. Last I heard passing laws is the job of congress.
