Devin Nunes Slams the FBI and DOJ for Its "Intransigence" In Stonewalling Lawful Congressional Requests for Documents and Witnesses

There's no greater threat to public order than a crooked policeman.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Thursday slammed the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their "failure to fully produce" documents related to the Trump dossier, saying that DOJ and the FBI should investigate themselves.

"Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI's intransigence with respect to the Aug. 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated," Nunes wrote in a scathing letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in which he complained about information and witnesses subpoenaed by his committee earlier in 2017.

"As a result of the numerous delays and discrepancies that have hampered the process of subpoena compliance, the committee no longer credits the representations made by DOJ and/or the FBI regarding these matters," Nunes added in the letter obtained by Fox News.

Nunes demanded records and available dates for witnesses to testify be given to Congress by Jan. 3., threatening to introduce a contempt of Congress resolution if his request is not met.

He says the FBI/DOJ claimed the documents he sought "did not exist" -- but it turned out they did exist, and involved the numerous high-ranking DOJ officers and FBI investigators reassigned for bias and conflicts of interest.

Here are the witnesses Rod Rosenstein is attempting to hide from Congress:

He is also demanding that Rosenstein set dates for next month for interviews with former DOJ Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok, FBI general counsel James Baker, FBI lawyers Lisa Page and Sally Moyer, and the FBIs congressional liaison, Greg Brower.

He also wants the notes of a meeting that involved Andrew Weissman, the Hillary Partisan who attended Hillary's Victory Night celebration (whoops):

Nunes also revealed the existence of a meeting involving a lawyer working on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe that was held in April.

That meeting that took place between DOJ/FBI personnel and members of the media. Andrew Weissman, a Justice Department attorney who now works on Mueller's team, took part in the meeting, which has not previously been reported.

Weissmann also sent an email to disgraced former DOJ official Sally Yates, praising her for insubordination in refusing to execute a lawful order of the President's.
