April 10, 2018

For several months, the House Intelligence Committee has been attempting to obtain a 2 page document from the FBI-DOJ. This highly-classified internal document was used as the logic for launching the Russian collusion investigation. As part of a larger subpoena, the DOJ or FBI must turn this document over to the Congressional Committee before 11:59pm EDT, on Wednesday April 11, 2018. If not....

"We're not going to just hold in contempt, we will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach," Nunes said to Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday evening.

"We're not messing around here," Nunes continued.

Nunes' statement comes after he reportedly encouraged Republican lawmakers to hold FBI director Christopher Wray and deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein in contempt, should the Justice Department refuse to provide his committee an unredacted two-page document showing the justification for the Russia probe.
Source: www.businessinsider.com...

Since it's only 2 pages, Rod Rosenstein or Christopher Wray can have it whisked over to Nunes's office at any time. President Trump said over the weekend that the DOJ/FBI apparently are "hiding something nefarious". We'll know soon...one way or the other.

The potential for the U.S. Assistant Attorney General, and the Director of the FBI to be held in Contempt of Congress, along with a vote for Impeachment, would be HUGE news any other week. But the potential for attacking Syria has the nation's attention right now.

I think it will pass with ease!
I do really want to see what is in the report but I am not going to hold my breath though. Some mundane reason will be used as usual. I’m sorry for all the negative things I have been saying lately. I have lost all faith in our democracy. Thank god I have no kids.

Well i’m Not really sorry but that is the reason why. What I am sorry about is suggesting that you use bleach and ammonia mixed in a sink while you hang out in there for thirty minutes with the windows and doors shut.

Here's the thing...If they had solid, legitimate evidence, why are they not showing it?
That is the question I'd be asking them and doing it very publicly.
Is this not what the whole investigation was based on? Some soooper secret proof, that they suddenly don't want to share, because...uh...uh..
If they don't turn it over by midnight tonight, I hope contempt and impeachment proceeding are started at 12:01 AM.
This is BS.
"We have proof that Trump did [ insert delusion here ] but you don't need to see it."
"Just take our word for it"

It's also being speculated that Mueller kicked his "Get Trump" campaign into high-gear this week, to beat Congress finding out Rosenstein appointed him based on FAKE evidence.

All we know is....nothing actually. I understand speculating is the premise of ATS. In regards to ongoing politics of this manner we should wait a few days. If I was in the higher end of politics I would demand to see the past three years of Trumps tax filings in return for the report. Then all is out there and nothing is hidden. Neither the left or right can complain at that point and we can move America forward.

That's exactly what I was thinking. They've kinda screwed themselves there though. If it's shown they used fake evidence to obtain warrants, this whole investigation goes right out the window and Trump can show it was all a political witch hunt, started by the Dems in retaliation for losing the election.
Then start firing some asses and bringing charges against them.

And that's why I think they're so desperate.
The main question here is : If they have evidence, Why Are They Stalling.

It would make ZERO sense to withhold these documents if there wasn't damning information in them.

The swamp was trying to buy as much time as possible, culminating in the illegal raid as a last nose dive.

They are desperate.

That muppet behaves even guiltier than trump.

Nunes can't do # and good luck getting the majority house and Senate to vote on impeaching Rosenstein and Wray (who was literally just appointed by trump and confirmed by the Senate.)

I hope that they miss the deadline and that Nunes is not just talking the talk, but that he walks the walk.

Holding my breath is not in the cards, though.

I hope Nunes goes ahead and gets them impeached. He probably won't get them removed, but at the very least we'll get a trial in the Senate where they'll need to explain why they refuse to provide the document.

I honestly do not think the establishment will allow itself to be punished in any way.

I will wager that we will never see the 2 page document and other news will disguise the fact that there will be no impeachment hearing.


I have lost faith in all politicians.


And "Giant Meteor" isn't returning my phone calls, so I'm not sure what we need to do.

What happens to RR and Wray if the Committee does impeach them? Does it mean they lose their jobs, or is it just a "slap on the wrist".

Clinton was impeached and stayed President.

If they get impeached, they'll face a removal trial in the Senate. It would take a 2/3 majority to remove them from office. That probably won't happen, but the fact that they got impeached in the first place could give Trump the political cover he needs to fire Rosenstein.

Thank you. If they're willing to go through an impeachment process to cover up what's in that document, it must be a bombshell. It will have to come to light eventually.

I hope they move to impeach, but as others said I wont hold my breath.

I expect what will happen is they will offer to read in the top member from each party and the committee will accept it so they can then get on their soap box and score points with their base in the press.

The way things have been going the last few days, Russian ICBM's might beat Giant Meteor to the punch.

Did anyone stop to think that releasing the document could compromise other aspects of the investigation? I would think so.

I'm sorry? Aren't they looking for documentation on the FISA warrant for Carter Page. The nobody who left the campaign in July of 2016?
No trump did anything no fill in the blanks.
