The corrupt DOJ deep state, including the FBI, has been refusing the give Congress records that they have demanded.
With Jeff Sessions having recused himself from the Justice Department Russia investigation House Republicans are forced to struggle with a disloyal DOJ deep state cell that includes the F.B.I. They want to operate as autonomous tax feeders who are not under the authority of office holders elected by the people.
Thus, Bloomberg reports, “House Republicans Prepare Contempt Action Against FBI, DOJ.”
U.S. House Republicans are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material related to the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.
Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes and other committee Republicans, after considering such action for several weeks, decided to move after media including the New York Times reported Saturday on why a top FBI official assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia-Trump election collusion had been removed from the investigation.
Republicans, including the president, pointed to the reports as evidence that the entire probe into Russian meddling has been politically motivated.[…]
Nunes, in the statement, said the committee will move on a resolution by the end of the month unless it demands are “fully met” by the close of business Dec. 4.
He cited “a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee’s oversight work,” including also withholding subpoenaed information about their use of an opposition research dossier that targeted Trump in the 2016 election.
