Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes issued a stark warning to the Department of Justice Monday, instructing officials to hand over documents related to the ‘FBI informant’ in the Trump campaign or face obstruction charges.
Nunes sent a scathing letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein this week, informing the DOJ official that any “delay” in producing the requested material would result in the “obstruction of a lawful, Congressional investigation.”
“DOJ continues to obfuscate and delay its production using an array of tactics, such as incorrectly categorizing the requested documents as Gang-of-Eight-level material in order to limit access,” states the letter. “Such conduct by DOJ is unacceptable because the Gang-of-Eight is a legal fiction that has no basis outside of the confines of Presidential approval and reporting of covert actions.”
“I will not relent in my duties on behalf of the American public to discover all the facts in this matter,” he added.
