DOJ Relents, Provides House Intel With Crucial Russia Probe Document


Nunes had been threatening to hold Rosenstein and Wray in contempt - and to potentially impeach them - if the Justice Department didn't cooperate with his committee amid stepped-up congressional Republican criticism of Rosenstein as President Donald Trump considers whether to fire him.

Meanwhile, "current and former" law enforcement officials had leaked to the New York Times on December 30 that the investigation was started after an Australian diplomat had a conversation with former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and reported it to US intelligence.

"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. Facing legal action, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein allowed House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to view the FBI memo that instigated the bureau's counterintelligence investigation of contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, Nunes confirmed on Wednesday.

Nunes appeared exasperated on Tuesday with the FBI's refusal to turn over to the intelligence committee an unredacted version of the two-page document used to justify the law enforcement investigation into the Trump campaign's contacts with Moscow.

Nunes had first subpoenaed that and other documents from the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation in August. "Since that time we've been investigating the State Department and we especially have an interest in this electronic communication", Nunes said on "The Ingraham Angle". The official said the document was no longer redacted, except for "narrowly tailored" redactions to protect the name of a foreign country and foreign agent that, if revealed, could undermine "the trust we have with this foreign nation".

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes arrives at the committe's secure offices in the basement of the U.S. Capitol House Visitors Center on February 6. And if the House were to take aggressive action against Rosenstein, it could give Trump cover to fire the deputy attorney general, who is ultimately in charge of the Mueller investigation.

She had initially planned to be there for the birth of Khloe Kardashian's daughter, just not as early as it is. One source painted Thompson as a "serial cheater" who will face more accusations in the coming days.

Earlier Tuesday, Nunes declined to say whether he meant to seek contempt charges against Wray and Rosenstein.

"Just the fact that they're not giving this to us tells me there's something wrong here", Nunes told Ingraham.

"I'm just trying to coach you on how to get out of the fake news realm", Nunes said. Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey are all Republicans.
