Nunes is having a Contempt of Congress resolution drafted against FBI Director and Deputy Attorney G

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is fed up with the FBI and Justice Department. Despite repeated attempts to get basic information from them regarding the Steele Dossier, they simply are not complying.

“At this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves,” Nunes said.

Subpoenas from August have been disregarded. Now, Nunes is demanding they produce all documents and schedule meetings with several people who have been part of the investigation by January 3.

“As a result of the numerous delays and discrepancies that have hampered the process of subpoena compliance, the committee no longer credits the representations made by DOJ and/or the FBI regarding these matters,” Nunes said.

The last resort is being prepared: Contempt of Congress resolutions against FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. If the demands of the committee are not met, it’s assumed the resolutions will be issued, putting both the DOJ and FBI in peculiar situations.

    Sounds like the latest attempt by Trump’s cronies to circumvent our laws and shut down the Mueller investigation.

    Should Trump succeed in shutting down the Mueller investigation before it completes, he deserves impeachment on the grounds of treason and attempting a coup of the US government.

    He has already tried to shut down the Judiciary branch with his attacks on all Judicial credibility and their authority to question his edicts.

    He has attacked (and continues to attack) Congressional authority and credibility.

    Now he’s using his tame Congressional lapdogs (already discredited for improperly sharing classified information with the subject of an investigation and for attempting to bias (or end) congressional investigations into Trump’s behavior) to attempt to discredit and disgrace the FBI and his own DOJ.

    If Trump succeeds in discrediting the Federal law enforcement agencies as he’s attempted to discredit our intelligence agencies, our courts, and our Congress, that will leave ONLY Trump in a position of authority and de facto dictator of the US (at least in his mind and the minds of his red-hat followers).

    It’s no wonder Trump’s credibility continues to fall both domestically and internationally and why he is becoming the most loathed president in history.

    People once thought Obama would go down as the worst president in history. As people continue to wake up to Trump’s actions, Trump is on-track to surpass Obama’s illegitimacy and destruction of the US before his first mid-terms.

    This is not hatred of Trump speaking (though I have no respect for a man with Trump’s proven and demonstrated lack of morals, ethics or humanity) – this is my love of country and my rejection of a President (no matter how he was put into office) – that is systematically destorying the institutions that form the basis of the trust and faith the American people have in our government while turning American against American by appealing to the worst elements of human nature: greed, sloth, envy, hatred, ignorance, and intolerance.

      Are you really not aware of all of the crimes that are being uncovered, using solid documentation and testimony evidence, of what has gone on in the DOJ and FBI under Obama? The corruption in the Obama administration was systemic at the upper levels, and this will be a huge scandal, encompassing Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, the email scandal, the FBI’s obstruction of justice, the Clinton campaign’s complicity in the dossier, the FBI’s illegal use of opposition research to secure a FISA warrant to spy on the other party’s candidate and the transition team, the illegal unmasking and leaking of names to the media by Obama officials, and I could go on. This is not an attempt to stop Mueller. It’s an attempt to restore the integrity of our most powerful legal and law enforcement organizations, and to prevent such powerful organizations from turning that power against private citizens and a sitting president, as has been done. Trump is staying out of this. It’s Congress, Inspector General Horowitz (an Obama appointee), AG Sessions and FBI director Wray who are spearheading these investigations, not Trump.

      If you’re getting your news from CNN and MSNBC, you definitely need to head over to Fox News for a few days and get your eyes opened, because the kind of conspiracy stuff you’re talking about has nothing to do with reality. Shutting down the judiciary? Attacking the Congress?? Did you not see the celebration of the tax bill at the WH last week? Trump and the congress are doing just fine, and are already planning their next steps for 2018. And I’m not sure how a president ‘shuts down’ the judiciary. We have a thing called the Constitution that prevents that. And just so you know, the president can’t realistically lead a coup against himself and his administration–that has to come from outside.

      Seriously, get yourself some real news.
