This is a strange development considering Nunes and Gowdy have been hounding Rosenstein to gain access to pertinent Mueller documents including the Rosenstein memo.
Facing contempt charges, Justice Department officials agreed to sit down with Nunes and Gowdy to come to a resolution last week.
Nunes and Gowdy met with Rosenstein and other officials last Thursday in a classified briefing amid a standoff over pertinent ‘Mueller-Russia’ documents being withheld by the swamp.
“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.”
Other things to consider…
Judge Ellis was given access to the unredacted Rosenstein memo earlier Thursday in a sealed court filing.
IG Horowitz informed lawmakers on Capitol Hill Wednesday that his much-anticipated report on the FBI’s handling of Hillary’s investigation is in the final stages.
Thanks to a leak, we know Inspector General Horowitz found “reasonable grounds” for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Story is developing….The Gateway Pundit will update with a response from Nunes and or Gowdy as soon as one is available.
