Because he is not required to.
Explain why the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation had to refile several years of their taxes? A hint: It was not because of a mistake.

But that was not within the scope of the charter
(b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:
(i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and
(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and
(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).
(c) If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters. . . . .

Yes, i've seen the chartered fishing expedition.
Is that where we are now? We just go digging in on political opposition until we find something to go "AH-HA!!!" about?

But less populous states do get to disenfranchise voters from other states.
Of course the system has to be respected, anything else would be absolutely wrong. But that doesn't mean it's a good system. Just extra layers of complexity that can potentially be gamed, plus the unequality. And the problem will get worse if differences in population keep growing.

So here is an good video from a former federal prosecutor discussing the document mentioned in this OP among other things.
Video is on the link.
Here is my summary.
Apparently Admiral Rogers was told by someone in 2015 that the FBI was abusing 702's with the Fisa court. They were getting warrants on foreign people (as is allowed) that was catching ameircans in incidental ways.
The FBI was then sharing that info with private companies (he thinks Fusion and Crowdstrike were among them) some of which were connected to the democrats.
This is criminal and highly unethical, so Rogers who was the head of the NSA launches an audit of the FBI's use of the 702's (whihc is the process for revealing info on these Fisa surveillances).
Sure enough rogers finds out the FBI under Obama have been abusing this. SO first he goes straight to the Fisa courts and lets them knoiw they have been lied to and the FBI is abusing this surveillance system.
The Fisa court is angry, and releases the April 2016 document that I mentioned above.
It outlines systemic abuse of the Fisa system by Obamas FBI.
Meanwhile, Rogers has learned that among those being spied on and having their info leaked to private comapanies was Trump team mebers.
SO after trump win the election, On November 17 2016 Rogers meets with Trump at Trump tower and tells him what happened.
Trump the next day orders his team out of trump tower and to New Jersey where he has a golf resort, and then proceeds to have Trump tower totally swept for bugs.
This is why Trump tweeted about Obama wiretapping him.
After Rogers meets with Trump, Brennan and another tell obama to fire Rogers, but Obama declinees knowing it wont make a difference because he has already blew the whistle, and doesnt want to bring more attention to it.
And so the process has been slow with Nunes receiving the documents that prove this abuse of the fisa system, and now starting to get it circulated more.
The other part I found interesting is this former prosecutor commenting on how the APril 2016 document from the fisa court outlining the systemic abuse under Obama is now a public document, but the media is basically being silent on it.
He discusses how the media is paid for, and how other groups like the DOJ and lynch, rice, etc. are all tied into this.
It is fascinating, and ties things together like everything mentioned above, to the sham investigation into hillary, and Muellers investigation.
According to the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) huddled together Saturday to discuss a “never-before-used procedure” for releasing the “shocking” FISA abuse memo.
Washington Examiner reports:
There’s no doubt Republicans want the public to see the classified memo. To get it out, they are studying a never-before-used procedure whereby House Intelligence Committee members would vote to make the memo public, after which the president would have five days to object.
If the president had no objection, the memo would become public after those five days. If the president did object, the matter would go to the full House, which could vote to overrule the president’s objections and release the memo anyway.
Republicans believe it is unlikely they would have to go that far; why would President Trump object to the release of a document allegedly showing that Obama administration officials abused the law in investigating Trump? But even if there were an objection, the feeling is the House would go ahead.

Thank-you for that video and info. It's fascinating that people are still arguing about Bob Mueller-Russia investigation, when that investigation will be shut down soon.
