BREAKING UPDATE: Congressional Committees Have Received Comey Memos
Faced with the threat of subpoena, the Justice Department is expected to send Comey’s unredacted memos to Congress later Thursday.
The deadline passed several days ago prompting Rep DeSantis to call for contempt charges against Rosenstein.

The Daily Beast confirmed the Justice Department is finally complying with the oversight committee’s request and will be sending Comey’s memos to Congress today or tomorrow.
Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump.
The fired FBI Director admitted to leaking contents of the memos to the New York Times through a friend in order to prompt a special counsel investigation into Trump.
CNN’s Jake Tapper also reported the Comey memos would be available to Congress later today.

On Sunday House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that the House was ready to take action against the DOJ if the requested Comey memos from the FBI.
The documents were already passed by Comey to the media but Congress does not have a copy yet.
Congress needs to impeach these DOJ crooks.
On Monday night the deadline passed and the Sessions Department of Justice had still not turned over the unredacted Comey memos to Congressional investigators.
The oversight committee has requested unredacted documents so if the DOJ hands over redacted memos, expect a firestorm and contempt charges to follow.
Comey was taunted on Twitter.
Hey @Comey. Just heard that DOJ is ready to send your memos to congress. Perfect timing with the book tour — you can’t hide from the press.
