Justice Department Misses Deadline to Give House Judiciary Committee Documents on FISA Abuse, Hillary Clinton Emails
The Justice Department missed the initial April 5th deadline to give the House Judiciary Committee over 1.2 million documents related to Hillary’s email investigation and FISA abuses.
Fox News reported:
A Republican Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News late Thursday that the Justice Department had “not yet” complied with the March 22 subpoena issued by committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. The aide added that the committee was “working with officials at DOJ to take immediate steps to comply with the subpoena and produce documents to the Committee.”
A Justice Department official confirmed to Fox News that the department was “in ongoing communication with Chairman Goodlatte.”
As previously reported, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) sent a subpoena to the Justice Department on March 22nd requesting documents related to Hillary Clinton’s private server and email investigation.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein must appear before the House Judiciary Committee April 5th.
Bob Goodlatte requested these documents four months ago and only received a fraction of the documents.
“To this date, the Department has only produced a fraction of the documents that have been requested,” Goodlatte said in a letter addressed to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
“Given the Department’s ongoing delays in producing these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue enclosed subpoena to compel production of these documents,” Goodlatte continued in his letter.
In addition to documents relating to Hillary’s email investigation, the subpoena also seeks documents pertaining to FISA abuses.
