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.
Among the information being sought by the committee are reports that summarize meetings between FBI confidential human sources and FBI officials about the Steele dossier.
It also wants to interview DOJ and FBI officials, Ohr, Strzok, FBI Attorney James Baker, FBI Attorney Lisa Page, FBI Attorney Sally Moyer and FBI Assistant Director for Congressional Affairs Greg Brower.
