Trump Slams Justice Department After DOJ Misses Deadline to Give House Judiciary Committee Docs on FISA Abuse, Hillary 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.

President Trump blasted the DOJ for slow walking the unredacted documents related to Obama’s FISA abuse and wanted to know ‘what do they have to hide?’

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 was to 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.

On Saturday, President Trump blasted the Justice Department.

Trump tweeted: Lawmakers of the House Judiciary Committee are angrily accusing the Department of Justice of missing the Thursday Deadline for turning over UNREDACTED Documents relating to FISA abuse, FBI, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Clinton Emails and much more. Slow walking – what is going on? BAD!

Trump then asked what does the FBI and DOJ have to hide?

What does the Department of Justice and FBI have to hide? Why aren’t they giving the strongly requested documents (unredacted) to the HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE? Stalling, but for what reason? Not looking good!
