VIDEO: GOP Lawmakers Likely to File Contempt of Congress Charges Against FBI and DOJ Officials — And MAY JAIL THEM!
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) is tired of waiting for Deep State to turn over subpoenaed documents.
Nunes and GOP lawmakers on the Intel Committee gave the Department of Justice and FBI until Wednesday to turn over requested documents on the phony Trump dossier.
Nunes slammed the Deep State last week for failing to produce the documents as required by law back in August.
“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. 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.”
But Deep State defied Congress and refused to turn over the documents.
On Wednesday night Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, told Lou Dobbs Congress may file contempt of Congress charges against the DOJ and FBI for failing to produce documents subpoenaed by Congress.
And Congress may call in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray and detain them in the House jail.
Rep. Ron DeSantis: I think what we have to do is use Congress’s inherent contempt authority that was done for 175 years. You have to bring them into Congress. You have a vote on the contempt and then you detain them. Just as if you were in contempt of court, the judge would detain you. And they’re detained until they comply. And here is what I predict, if they were put in the House jail for contempt of Congress we’d have the documents within 24 hours.
