House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) ordered congressional investigators to physically remove all outstanding documents from the Justice Department on Thursday.
“Intel Cmte chair Nunes says Hse Intel Cmte will send investigators to DoJ Thursday to do a “scrub” of documents they have pursued since winter. Nunes says if McCabe doesn’t appear next Tuesd, he will move to subpoena him..or potentially hold McCabe in contempt of Congress,” tweeted Fox News’ Chad Pergram.

“I believe there’s evidence that abuses have occurred,” Nunes told Herridge regarding the FISA courts and other surveillance practices.
“We have had an ongoing investigation into DOJ and FBI since mid-summer for both FISA abuse and other matters that we can’t get into too much. But it is very concerning.”
“I hate to use the word corrupt, but they become so dirty that, who is watching the watchmen? Who is investigating these people? There is no one.”

In an interview with newly-minted Fox News host Laura Ingraham in October, Nunes (R-CA) gave a sobering view of the Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions and James Comey’s FBI.
The California lawmaker says the Justice Department is ignoring the issue of leaks, marring investigations into scandals such as the ‘Trump Dossier,’ and ‘Russian interference,’ into the 2016 presidential election.
“Who’s lying at the FBI?,” Ingraham asked Nunes on the topic of who funded the ‘Trump dossier.’
“We don’t really know. Is it just Comey or is it the whole FBI?,” asked Nunes
Ingraham was taken aback by the response, replying with “that’s quite a charge.”
“Absolutely. This is the government out of control,” admitted Nunes.
