DOJ Hoping Democrats Win the Midterms to Cover Up Old Crimes?

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) says that the Department of Justice is STILL dragging their feet on getting Congress documents about the Russia investigation.

Nunes is now convinced that the DOJ is hoping to stall long enough for Democrats to win back Congress in the hopes that when they return to power they’ll simply drop the investigation!

It’s an outrageous charge, but one that seems to be growing ever more likely the longer that the DOJ holds out.

Here’s Nunes:

“Why does this always happen? Every time something happens on one side where we find out a new revelation about what appears to be real problems in the FBI and DOJ, all of a sudden they drop an indictment. It has happened time and time again, and this one is really bad,” he said, implying that they are trying to cover something up.

It is the oldest trick in the book. Many of the bureaucracies here in Washington know how to wait out Congress. They know to plan meetings on a Monday when there is not votes, or on a Friday when there is not votes, they wait. They know that Congress is going to adjourn next week. So they are making us wait for no reason. We’re waiting on many documents, as you know, and we are getting very slow, snail’s pace cooperation that is clearly designed to wait until next week when Congress adjourns…

They’d love to see Republicans lose. I hate to say that, but I have to believe that at the DoJ and FBI, the people at the leadership, they are banking on a loss by the Republicans in the fall. If the Democrats get control, they’re going to drop all of this investigation.”
