Nunes Letter to Rod Rosenstein, Christopher Wray: Either Comply With Our Legitimate Demands for FISA Documents Or We'll Hail You Before a Federal Judge

It's adorable he thinks the judges aren't in on this.

But at least he's trying.

Actually, a few judges aren't in on this. We'll see if Nunes gets lucky on that. Or if, by "random draw," he just happens to get a judge that's on the side of the Deep State.

From Sara A. Carter:

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) demanded Wednesday that the FBI and DOJ comply with the committee's subpoena to review documents pertaining to the bureau’s Russia investigation. In particular, the committee wants the un-redacted version of the original investigative document, also known as "Electronic Communication" that launched the FBI counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, according to a letter issued by the Chairman.

Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA, sent the letter to Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray warning them that their lack of compliance with the committee’s original Aug. 24, 2017 subpoena to turn over all requested documents could result in "the Committee pursuing all appropriate legal remedies, including seeking civil enforcement" in a federal district court. The committee gave the FBI and DOJ until April 11 to turn over all the documentation requested.

...

"At your request, I have endeavored to execute the Committee's oversight responsibilities more informally," Nunes said in his letter. "On March 23, 2018, FBI's Assistant Director for Legislative Affairs informed the Committee that FBI would refuse to further un-redact the EC based on its supposed sensitivity. The document in question is not highly classified, and law enforcement sources have apparently not been shy about leaking to the press information that the Department and Bureau refuse to share with Congress."

A copy of the letter is available at the link.
