I found this separate account from last month with Trey Gowdy
and Devin Nunes both confirming same thing with RR.



Citing a former federal law enforcement official, The New York Times reported that Rosenstein, who oversees the Russia probe, felt "misled" by Nunes' staff over House Intelligence Committee investigator Kash Patel's travel to London last year.

The newspaper, citing the same official, reported Rosenstein wanted to know if Patel was attempting to interview former British spy Christopher Steele, the author behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier.

Looks like someone want's Steele to be off limits.

Whoops!

It is spin. If they are holding him in contempt he has the right to subpoena documents from them.

So:

A) Yes he DID threaten Congress with subpoena, take that how you want. I would say it is an abomination of the office in refusal to submit to oversight.

B) He threatened them to save his own skin, denying their allegations and contesting that his subpoena capabilities would prove that their charges are unfounded. I suppose, that is because the subpoenaed documents that Congress wants don't look so hot.

Take it all how you will. The Left will take it one way, the Right another. This guy says, "Girls, you're both ugly."

Im not buying it he never said it. Lets be honest if he did say something like he was going to investigate congress he would have been fired that day. Most likely he made a statement that could be twisted by the media and their source.

I suspect they were making demands for emails and he said how would you like it if we just asked congress for all their emails.

Wouldn't matter. DOJ doesn't oversee Congress unless it is a criminal matter. There isn't one, he clarified as such, and so that is a baseless argument.

The argument is, if you come after me, I can subpoena you. Sure, but why don't you want to give up the documents?

Simple, they are incriminating and he basically said "I'll take you m'fers down with me."

That's our AAG. That's what we've got here. That is alarming.

Really?

It sounds like marking territory. "I'm the executive, you're the legislative. Get it? Want to complain? Talk to the judge."

I seem to be hearing the tune of "Obstruction" which surprisingly is in my memory as of late since it has been pounded into my head via the MSM as one of Trump's supposed crimes. Interesting... seems lost on you.

Seems you don't understand the system which was set up a couple of hundred years or so ago.

Seems you don't appreciate it much, either.

Three branches. That sort of thing. Don't feel bad. Our president doesn't seem to get it either.

You're right as usual, BTS. The DOJ doesn't want the House Intel committee's lead investigator (Kashyap Patel) digging too deep, and uncovering the illegal scheme that led to FBI/UK spying on the Trump campaign, and eventually the appointment of Bob Mueller, to conduct his "get Trump" assignment.

Although Congressional investigation findings carry some weight, OIG Michael Horowitz's 3rd I.G. Report, on FISA/Steele/Spying/DOJ/FBI, will be what triggers criminal referrals to Prosecutor Huber. I have no idea when that 3rd installment will be ready.

So far, it's all Rosenstein as the aggressor. Here's news from late Tuesday afternoon.


Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein plans to call on the House to investigate the conduct of House Intelligence Committee staffers, CNN and Fox News reported Tuesday.

The second-ranking Justice Department official will “request that the House general counsel conduct an internal investigation of these Congressional staffers’ conduct,” both outlets reported, both citing an unnamed Department of Justice official.
talkingpointsmemo.com...

All Congress is attempting to do is conduct an investigation into what caused the DOJ/FBI to begin investigating and directing spies to the Trump campaign. If it was on the up-and-up, the DOJ wouldn't resist, because Congress is the body that polices and funds the Department of Justice.

Tomorrow, a resolution is being introduced for the full U.S. House to vote on, if Paul Ryan agrees. It will force Rod Rosenstein to produce the documents (unredacted) that Congress has been requesting.

Resolution 2b introduced on 6.13.2018: www.foxnews.com...

Seriously? There have been no demands that the DOJ provide classified information to the House Committee?
Damn Mandela effect got me. I could swear that happened. A lot.

Because Devin Nunes lies and makes reports that leave out half the information and interviews only half the witnesses and then says There you go a fair and unbiased report...
The house intelligence committee has zero credibility because of him and the other GOP members.

Yep! Comey authorized McCabe to leak a little, lol. You'll see more about that when the #2 section of Horowitz's IG Report is published, on Thursday afternoon.

Do you work for the IG?
Isn't it illegal to leak that information?

Shame on you.

You obviously view Congress executing oversight of the DOJ as being "aggressive". That's fine. I'm not in the business of convincing, like a lot of people are.

LOL I don't think so.
He's appointed by trump isn't he?
He didn't make a mistake surely... did he?

No.
I view Nunes as being Trump's lapdog.

So now congress shouldn't over see the DOJ when there are accusations of wrongdoing?


It should take no time at all to read in the ranking members and show them the paperwork, requesting an investigation into the people asking questions seems fairly bone headed. It give the look that you may be guilty of something when the alternative of reading in members of congress would have the entire thing over and done with pretty quick. (assuming there is nothing wrong in the paperwork)

Like most of your posts Sillyolme, reports omit information too. Nunes and Schiff both did it. Soon we'll know how much BS Comey, Lynch, Strzok, and that gang pulled. But even that report will be imperfect, because imperfect people compiled it.
