Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes Gives DOJ Until January 3rd To Produce Documents…

House Intelligence Committee Chairman, and Gang of Eight member, Devin Nunes, has delivered an ultimatum to Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein; demanding the DOJ deliver the documents and evidence surrounding the Steele Dossier to the committee by January 3rd.

There’s an unspoken coordination here which needs to be highlighted. Intelligence Chairman Nunes appears focused specifically on the Dossier, which is to say the DOJ side of the collusion.  Judicial Chairman Goodlatte is focused the FBI side.

Nunes demand comes as DAG Rosenstein has already committed to deliver 1.2 million pages of evidence from the year-long DOJ Inspector General investigation to the House Judiciary Chairman, Bob Goodlatte, on/around January 15th.   More than likely the FBI/DOJ requested information is also contained within the upcoming OIG material.

WASHINGTON DC – 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.

“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.

He called the DOJ’s initial response to the subpoenas “disingenuous at best.”

Nunes said the DOJ informed the House Intelligence Committee several weeks ago that the “basic investigatory documents demanded by the subpoenas…did not exist.”

“As it turns out, not only did documents exist that were directly responsive to the committee’s subpoenas, but they involved senior DOJ and FBI officials who were swiftly reassigned when their roles in matters under the committee’s investigation were brought to light,” Nunes wrote.  (continue reading)

    Just an observation. There is no finger pointing from others involved like underlings (ie from Rosey at Sessions, for instance) about who has ordered the stand down on delivering documents. And no comments from the demoted or fired either. From either side.

    It would be interesting to be in DC right now to feel the vibe. To hear some of the back channel chatter. We have quite a host of level conspirators who are obviously surrounded by first tier witnesses (colleagues, co-workers, acquaintances, etc) we are not hearing from. This crime was not committed in a vacuum! As the media and those involved would have us think it was.

    There is definitely a formulated script being played out by multiple players. It is very difficult for those afar to discern what is really happening and the truth of the matter.

        What about the Ted Stevens trial where the prosecution. Of course the case wasn’t thrown out until AFTER Stevens lost his Senate seat to a Democrat.

        And how about Scooter Libby who just got his law license back after prosecutorial misadventures. Of course ten years AFTER the lefty media used it to destroy George W. Bush’s presidency. http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/06/scooter-libby-gets-law-license-back-by-d-c-court-of-appeals/

        And now we have Judge Roy Moore who was defeated based on 40 year old accusations of a “crime” that wasn’t a “crime” at the time it was supposedly committed. As Hillary Clinton once said, “at this point, what difference does it make”. That line says it all.
        Stevens lost his set to a Dem., Libby lost his career because he wouldn’t rat out Dick Cheney and Roy Moore was defeated by a Democrat. What’s not to like if you’re a Lefty?

        None of this will change until elections are overturned when it is found out that the Democrats (and it’s always the Democrats) used a politicized judiciary, bureau or media to destroy a political opponent. Roy Moore should sue the women who accused them and make them prove their accusations. If they can’t, Alabama should revote the election. Just as after Stevens’s case was thrown out, there should have been a special election in Alaska to choose its senator (by then Stevens was dead in a plane crash), just as the MEN who persecuted Scooter Libby should be forced to pay reparations to him for ten year’s harassment. They were Jim Comey and Patrick Fitzerald by the way.

      I’m on the fence, but leaning towards there’s a greater strategic play in the works. Personally, I think it’s best for the Obama appointed IG to produce the documents.

      President Trump can do whatever he wants; however, it’s best that he continues to be President. Why unnecessarily give more false ammo to the SJW/Dems/MSM.

      Most people don’t even realize Hillary wouldn’t become President if Trump were impeached, so try explaining to them that the President is the Executive Branch and can make any decision hat has been delegated to Cabinet officicials, heck he could fire everyone and do it all himself, but that’s not what real leaders do. I don’t even think Pelosi knows this, she probably thought Obama was king because of his huge Electoral College margin (he was like valedictorian or something) and the fact that he was given the Noble Peace prize for simply “winning” an election.

      My suggestion is for us Trumpsters to bite the bullet and let the (censored) Establishment win this round but once Trump is out of office, whether impeachment, resignation, serving out his first term and losing or serving out his second term, and once he is out of office THEN TAKE OUR REVENGE and vote every (censored) establishment Republican out of office.

    Those in authority need to take action in order for their authority to mean anything.

    Since we are no longer a nation of laws, those in authority do not feel compelled to take action at times that would be proper, and those against whom the action is taken do not feel compelled to respond/yield to it.

    Lawlessness has been the norm for so long in the agencies there is certainly no reason for them to get all excited, either personally or departmentally, about a demand from Congress or some other, in their experience, alleged authority.

    The effort to impose legal measures and the lack of response does serve to expose how deep the habitual corruption has been embedded.

    Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. It will spare you a great deal of stress from day to day.

    Watch. Wait. Get high up in the bleachers, as Sundance has recommended; try to keep the larger field of play in view. I try to do that, without a lot of success, but I know there is no point in intensely engaging at ground level with all of the chaos swirling and there imagining that I am either understanding or impacting.

        I get the doubt. I have been a political junkie for a couple of decades myself. However, to equate the Era of Trump with anything that happened in recent decades…especially the Obama 8 years…is simply a failure to recognize the significance of the events of the last 2.5 years.

        Sometimes, history is not always a good predictor of future events. That is a good thing…otherwise, we would not have a President Trump.

        Look at the seizmic shift towards populism here in Europe, as well. Merkel still does not have a government in place months after the election.

    However, I will say this. Some REAL breakthrough in the FBI/DOJ corruption matter had better happen fairly soon, in the next 2 months or so. Otherwise, Congress will just dump it, as they devote all of their energies toward re-election instead. That will result in having no practical friendly platform to drive this matter any longer.

    Sometime later, Sundance came out and said yes, Rosey IS a white hat.

    What about the infiltration of Hollywood with communists so that they could spread their ideology by eventually taking control of the entertainment and news media business…not just in the United States…the entire Western World! Checkers?

    Let us look at recent events. The Splitter Strategy. The UniParty. The Clinton Foundation. The Obama Foundation. The McCain Institute. Uranium One. The Global Friggin’ SWAMP!

    Checkers?

    Who here truly believes you are taking these evil treasonous seditious (bleeps)…….(some more bleeps)……(a few more 😀 ) down by playing checkers?

    I bet you that General Kelly and General MadDog Mattis can tell us a little about QuadrillionD Chess.

      I don’t think Trump gives a hoot about all this Globaloney. I like the ins and outs but in the end it is a hill of beans. A DC Soap Opera.

      • Don’t confuse confidence with not giving a hoot.

        Trump has consistently said over the years that he would only run for President if he believed it absolutely necessary. I believe him. Who would voluntarily put themselves through this? Remember the “Our Movement” video? Was that just “DC Soap Opera”?

      Respectfully, I’d submit that the same group of “negative” people was warning about Mueller from the beginning, and got the same type of reaction.

      Now, I’d say, the vast majority agree that Mueller is not a friend of Trump.

      Now, a more general comment not directed at your post:
      Let’s face it. At this point in time, no one knows whether Sessions is good, bad or indifferent.
      But people have strong opinions on both sides. That’s fair, and neither side should be disparaged until facts are evident that point to a provable conclusion.

      To Sessions supporters, critics are insufferable naysayers, but to Sessions critics, the supporters seem like delusional pollyanna’s.

      And to a great many, both extremes are reaching beyond facts in evidence.

      There are a few posters whose views I know well enough, and see nothing new added, that I just scroll past them. It’s their right to post. I’m sure there are those who scroll right past mine, as my views are fairly consistent as well.

      I guess my long winded point is that the best defense of your position is to post facts that support it, and not to criticize those you disagree with or even worse, to tell them to stop posting.

      • This is not just about Sessions or Mueller…and this is not a 50/50 event. There is something else here going on.

        As far as Sessions supporters go, I have seen very plausible THEORIES given. I have yet to see somebody stating them as absolute fact. I cannot say that about.

        Furthermore, what makes CTH special (other than Sundance) is the quality of the comment section. Sometimes a little self policing is necessary so it does not end up like a YouTube troll fest.

        I am not attempting to censor anybody from a substantive comment. Again, that is not what I and others are witnessing.

        It’s the empty repetitive negative snark that mostly comes out of nowhere to hijack a thread…and it is NOT coming from “both extremes”.

        Albertus Magnus has remarked on this as well. You can pick out the specific names and go back over the last year.

          You haven’t seen supporters stating their theories as fact?

          “Don’t worry, Trump’s got this” is not stated as a theory, and it is very common in those threads.

              Yes, and the “negative” comments you refer to may be in REACTION to the people with the very positive assessments of Sessions actions/inactions.

              It is all in one’s perspective.

              Let’s respect both side’s view.

    It seems to me that DOJ is stalling in order to see the Inspector General’s report before revealing what they have. They may be thinking that they can protect people that the IG doesn’t know about yet. Nunes forcing them to show their cards before the IG means that we may get new leads for investigation.

      I believe that the IG could/would get more info than Nunes/Congress could ever get. From what I’ve read, and from previous comments by CorwinAmber (previous experience in IG’s org) they get what they ask for; e.g. texts/devices from selected FBI personnel. I believe DOJ/FBI (Rosey and Wray) are stalling because of the IG investigation and perhaps the IG told them not to.

    We conservatives are dealing with hard core, determined, dug-in Marxists. When are Republucans going to learn it will take more than a sternly worded letter to get them to comply. They have no regard for the law or Constitution, therefore their ends jystify their means.
