FBI, DOJ To Finally Hand Over Subpoenaed Trump-Russia Dossier Documents

After being threatened to be held in contempt of Congress, officials at the FBI and Department of Justice have finally agreed to hand over subpoenaed documents related to the debunked Trump-Russia dossier.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes first requested the documents on Aug. 24. However, last week Nunes slammed the “intransigence” of the FBI and DOJ for failing to deliver the documents more than four months after the request.

“Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI’s intransigence with respect to the Aug. 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated,” Nunes said. “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.”

Further, on Wednesday evening Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs that he may file contempt of Congress charges against the DOJ and FBI for failing to produce the documents.

Well, that got their attention, because also on Wednesday Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray went to Capitol Hill to discuss the documents with House Speaker Paul Ryan. And, after speaking with Rosenstein, Rep. Nunes said he believed “the House Intelligence Committee has reached an agreement with the Department of Justice that will provide the committee with access to all the documents and witnesses we have requested. The committee looks forward to receiving access to the documents over the coming days.”

Finally.

This has taken far too long, and it only proves that the FBI and DOJ have something to hide when it comes to the phony Trump-Russia dossier. New members of the deep state are being uncovered every day with regards to the Russia investigation. Don’t be surprised when the House Intelligence Committee uncovers more.

Share this if you’re ready for Congress to get to the bottom of the phony Trump-Russia dossier!

  • Both Rosenstein and Wray are part of the deep state and will do everything to make sure that Trump doesn't succeed. Donald has to clean house. Sessions and Rosenstein in DOJ, Wray and McCabe in FBI. All deep staters and no friend of our president. All have to go as soon as possible.

  • Government is not the problem.....it's the foxes watching and controlling the hen house....so they think...get'em Darrell Issa....

  • Sickening when our own DOJ and FBI are becoming criminal organizations. Comey needs to be locked up, and maybe that Mueller jackass too, along of course, with the Clinton crime family.

  • It is sad when the FBI and DOJ can't follow the law and supply what is in a subpoeana in a timely fashion. If a citizen or company failed to respond timely they would be severely penalized. It clearly shows why the public has lost faith in the justice system.

  • About time! What are the DOJ and FBI afraid of? I think this scandal will go down in history as the defining moment when the USA put a stop to one of the worst cases of TREASON perpetuated by our own government to delegitimize an election. Truly scarey!!

  • If anyone thinks the FBI is going to give Nunes and congress a complete set of the Trump-Russia dossier original documents is just fooling themselves. Whatever the FBI hierarchy gives congress will be carefully screened and only exculpatory documents will be submitted. They have been working feverishly to cleanse and sanitize anything they submit. The delay in submitting these documents has been for this purpose......

  • Nonsense.
    The deep-state operatives within the FBI and DOJ have had time to re-write all alleged documents so as to cloud the guilt of all the subversives, such as "wet-start" McCain, who pimped for the FBI and DOJ.
    Contempt of congress should have been proferred upon the expiration of the 1st NLT date.

  • Lets just hope that they did not take all this time in redacting the documents. or else, why would they have taken so frigging long????

  • the FBI and DOJ want to prolong the process because they like wasting taxpayers money since the demorats think taxpayers money belong to them to do what they want end of story.
