Here’s Why Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy Ignored Invitation to Meet With Leaky DOJ and Rosenstein on Friday

As previously reported, Chairman of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy (R-SC) were invited to meet with Rosenstein, Wray and Senior Intel staff Friday morning.

A senior DOJ official told Fox News that Nunes and Gowdy had not responded to their invite as of Thursday evening.

On Sunday, Nunes revealed why he refused to meet with the leaky DOJ on Friday.

On Thursday, Fox News producer, Jake Gibson reported a DOJ official claimed Nunes and Gowdy had not responded to the invitation extended to them for a Friday morning briefing.

Gibson tweeted: Senior DOJ Official:
Earlier in the week (Tuesday), we offered Chairmen Nunes and Gowdy a meeting for Friday morning with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Chris Wray, and senior Intelligence Community staff. They have not responded to our invite.

This was a strange development considering Nunes and Gowdy have been hounding Rosenstein to gain access to pertinent Mueller documents including the Rosenstein memo.


Nunes accused the DOJ of not only leaking to the media, but he confirmed once again they are playing games and wouldn’t give him the documents he requested.

Chairman Nunes appeared on Fox News’ Sunday Futures with Maria Bartiromo and told her “We’re not going to go to another meeting where we don’t get documents and then the meeting leaks out. This should make people very suspicious – they were trying to get Mr. Gowdy & I to go on Friday to the Justice Department for supposedly another briefing.”

Did Nunes just hint Rod Rosenstein and or FBI Director Christopher Wray of being the possible leakers?

Nunes also told Maria Bartiromo had he and Gowdy gone to Friday’s meeting with the DOJ, the recent leaks about the FBI informant embedded in Trump’s campaign would have been blamed on them.

The Deep State has viciously gone after Nunes and blamed him for leaking time and time again.

Nunes skipped Friday’s meeting and DOJ/FBI sources still managed to leak information to the stenographers at the New York Times and Washington Post about the FBI informant.
