The DOJ-FBI turned over many documents to Congressional Investigators this month. But the two sets of documents most sought after, will NOT be delivered.

1. The documents showing when the FBI Invesigation of Trump presidential campaign staff started, and who authorized it.
-and-
2. The documents showing information on FBI Informants/Spies, who were assigned to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

This afternoon, just before the 5pm deadline, Assistant Attorney General STEVEN BOYD sent a letter to the House Intelligence Committee.


The Justice Department responded to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ latest deadline, telling him he already has the “documents and answers” he has been inquiring about.

“Your letter asks whether the Department and the FBI ‘intend to obey’ the law. We believe that is exactly what the Department and the FBI have been doing responding to the Committee’s subpoenas and requests,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd in a Monday letter obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Also, it looks like the U.S. House will take a vote this week..


"There's going to be floor action this week," Meadows said on Fox News. "We will be voting to compel DOJ and FBI to make sure that they get those documents to Congress."

Meadows said Congress has subpoenaed the Justice Department for documents, but said it has only received 1,400 of the 50,000 documents it has demanded.

And, more indication that Congress is SERIOUS about getting to the bottom of all this. Asst Attorney General ROD ROSENSTEIN and FBI Director CHRISTOPHER WRAY will be grilled by the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday June 28th.


This Thursday, Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray will come head-to-head with lawmakers at a hearing scheduled with the House Judiciary Committee. The two are expected to testify about growing concerns that senior members of the FBI were biased and mishandled the bureau’s investigation into alleged collusion between members of President Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Specifically, the lawmakers want to know if the DOJ and FBI used informants to spy on the Trump campaign, how many were used, and if they were used, how much it cost the taxpayers.

Add in the Strzok testimony to Congress this Wednesday, and we're looking at a week with lots of fireworks leading up to the 4th of July holiday. BTW.. there's a push to make the Peter Strzok testimony OPEN session and broadcast live. Since we're talking about the U.S. Presidential election, WHY hide his role in it from the voters in this country?

President Trump demands that Strzok be Open Session: www.foxnews.com...

I think the strange part of all of this is that the President already has all of the information but he needs the FBI and DOJ to bring it into the light.

Who would execute a search warrant?

If POTUS can't then one of the Supreme Court Justices will need to execute a search warrant.

I have a feeling that a "warrant" of some kind will be needed to force Rod Rosenstein to supply what Congress asked for today, too.




A group of nine House Republican lawmakers has signed a letter asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to provide the names of everyone "past and present" who has worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

The lawmakers say they are "disturbed" by the initial appointments to the probe of agents and attorneys with an anti-Trump bias. Their letter specifically references agent Peter Strzok, attorney Lisa Page and attorney Kevin Clinesmith.

"We know that these biases were shared among multiple people at the FBI and could be easily uncovered by Mr. Mueller with simple vetting," the letter says. "These individuals should not have been given an opportunity to influence – directly or indirectly – this special counsel investigation."

The letter also adds that the lawmakers are concerned that "there may be more politically biased investigators" working on Mueller's team.

Republicans have said they believe Clinesmith is the attorney identified in DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz's report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation as "Attorney 2." The Horowitz report, released earlier this month, includes messages from "Attorney 2" lamenting Trump's election as well as a missive reading "viva le resistance."

When lead investigator/Trump-hater Peter Strzok wrote: "WE WILL STOP HIM.", the "WE" likely includes investigators and attorneys who are still on Bob Mueller's Special Counsel team. This is what Congress suspects, and rightfully so.

I heard they have been handing out FISA warrants for about anything. Would that work?

It has gotten to the point where I hope Rod Rosenstein and the rest of the upper management of the FBI and even the DOJ get drug before a news conference in chains.. "Oh but what have they done", I can hear now > this has been nothing but an obstruction of justice from the get go.. Does anyone honestly believe we would get the same kid glove treatment ?

Congress has been ball less long enough it is absolutely time to lower the hammer..

The ultra top-secret FISA judges do seem to be either gullible, or corrupt, don't they? But for some reason, Congress is afraid to ask them questions directly. Sure would save a lot of time.

The deep state is trying to resist, hoping that a "Blue Wave" in November will save them from being prosecuted.

I guess they didn't get the memo stating that the BLUE wave is turning into a RED wave.

But for some reason, Congress is afraid to ask them questions directly.
Maybe because the legal grounds for doing so are questionable?

We can all recognize that Congress has a legitimate interest in obtaining information which will assist in the legislative process. But the efforts to obtain information may not threaten judicial independence or the established principle that a judge’s judicial acts cannot serve as a basis for his removal from office.

fas.org...

In other words, Congress can clearly consult with judges about crafting laws but going much beyond that is treading on thin Constitutional ice.

Those are the words of Chief Justice Rehnquist, btw. We know what a liberal he was.

Its always made me laugh, the very idea that anything that happens in either the DoJ or the FBI has any root in leftist ideology. Given that the DoJ and the FBI both have, or have had units specifically in place to prevent the spread of anything like leftist ideology taking root in American culture, I am baffled beyond belief that this sort of nonsense flies with any of the members here.

Its not leftist. Its statist.

For years the world has told us to do somethimg about our rogue government. Trump seems to at least be a step towards that. What convinced me, someone who made a few enemies ridiculing others for voting for him in the primary, was how hard the IC and its apparatus (media) has fought against him.

It amazese how common folk across the world come down on the guy when he is what they asked America to do..."something" about our government.

That's because most modern conservatives are the true libertarians.

This isn't about party lines or even conservatives or liberals, this new landscape is about a twisted modern take on the socialist ideology and it's chosen target; classic nationalistic boundaries and identities, with the desired endgame of global government.

Again, the devil is in the details.

People were telling American people to do something about its government, because its government was out of control and toxic to the rest of the world, its allies, and indeed its own damned people. Trump is NOT solving that in the slightest! He is making the things that are wrong with America, even more entrenched. People wanted business OUT of politics altogether, to ensure that the only people with a voice in matters political, are the people themselves, not corporate entities who get by just fine without government help.

They wanted wages that reflect the effort and hours put in by the working person, they wanted social security systems that actually WORK, rather than defunct ones which protect no one and cost the Earth at the same time, they wanted the pharma companies corralled into a corner and prevented from over charging the man in the street for simple, cheap materials and drugs, to not be paying extortion money to dodgy hedge fund managers every time they take their shots of insulin, or pop a pill that will KEEP THEM ALIVE FOR ANOTHER MONTH.

They did not want the executives of the world to have jobs in government. They did not want people like Stephen Miller given policy writer status. They did not want a government EVEN MORE totalitarian than the one that came before!

Not exactly; the republicans have been corrupted by the "establishment" elites. There is no difference between republicans and democrats anymore, just the color of the armband they wear. Trump is none of the above, he's an 'outsider' and this is why he is so universally despised...he's a threat to their way of life. And, this is a good thing!

The democrats are still playing the 2-party thing, but the republicans aren't sure what to do. There's no shelter from Trump behind the party flag, and that's a BIG deal! They have a choice; they can hide behind the party flag and risk exposure, or they can sign on with Trump and hope to save their bacon, but risk alienating their gravy train, and this too is a BIG deal!

Make no mistake, the "rats", all of them, are running for cover in the shadows right now!! Doesn't matter what color armband they're wearing.

You mean the text messages sent by a few that you guys want to use to discredit the other 30k agents?

Those messages?

Taking down the doj and fbi will be a much much bigger blow to the republicans than anyone else.

The liberals have been trying to take down the fbi for years and now here you are doing their job for them.

You must be proud.

If the fbi has even a little power taken from them the libs will dance in the streets.

They are only using the fbi to go after trump right now.

After trump is gone the libs will be more than happy to finish of the doj and fbi if you guys havn't done it by then.
