DEVELOPING: Nunes, Gowdy Had “Productive Discussion” With DOJ Officials Amid Russia Probe Standoff
House Intel Chairman Devin Nunes and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy met with Rosenstein and other officials Thursday in a classified briefing amid a standoff over pertinent ‘Mueller-Russia’ documents being withheld by the swamp.
Facing contempt charges, Justice Department officials agreed to sit down with Nunes and Gowdy to come to a resolution.
Fox News reported:
Fox News has learned Nunes and Gowdy met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and his deputy Ed O’Callahan, as well as representatives from the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
Things have been tense in recent weeks between Nunes and the Justice Department, with Nunes at one point threatening to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt.
The meeting appeared to be an effort on the part of the Justice Department to come to a resolution.
“We had a productive discussion today with officials from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Department of Justice, and FBI in which we raised questions related to information requested from the Intelligence Community,” Nunes and Gowdy said in a statement. “The officials committed to holding further discussions of these matters, and we look forward to continuing our dialogue next week to satisfy the committee’s request.”
Ranking Minority member of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) is also meeting with DOJ officials Thursday.
It looks like we have to wait another week to see if Nunes is able to receive Rosenstein’s unredacted memo detailing Mueller’s scope.
As of right now, only a heavily redacted version of the memo has been released to the public.
The redactions hide Mueller’s more specific description of authority granted to him by Rosenstein.
Thank God for Chairman Nunes’ relentless fight against the Deep State.
