BREAKING: Nunes Receives Unredacted “Electronic Communication” Document From DOJ After Threatening to Hold Rosenstein in Contempt

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge reported Wednesday evening that House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes received access to the requested two-page unredacted document from the DOJ.

Chairman Nunes threatened to hold Rosenstein and Wray in contempt if they didn’t produce the document by midnight Wednesday after missing the initial April 5th deadline.

The 2-page document known as the “Electronic Communication” is what launched the investigation into the Trump-Russia collusion probe.

Nunes told Sara Carter the “Electronic Communication”  is a central piece of information necessary to their ongoing investigation into the FBI and related matters.

Fox News producer Jake Gibson reported DOJ officials have provided Chairman Nunes with access to the “Electronic Communication” document with few redactions.


DOJ official says the Department
provided Chairman Nunes, Ranking Member Schiff, and all members of HPSCI with access to the requested document. (EC) “Remaining redactions are narrowly tailored to protect the name of a foreign country and the name of a foreign agent…”

Gibson then tweeted: 2/2 DOJ Official: “With this production, in conjunction with the 1,000 pages of classified materials… we believe we have substantially satisfied Chairman Nunes August subpoena in an appropriate fashion.” @FoxNews

Chairman of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) privately told several colleagues Tuesday it’s time for the House GOP to hold Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress if they refuse to hand over requested documents.
