Rosenstein, Wray Met with Speaker Ryan as Nunes Closed in on Them


Update: 1/5/18: CNN is reporting that Speaker Ryan backed Nunes when he met with Wray and Rosenstein.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray met with Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday at their request about the House Russia investigation, according to the hill. This was as Devin Nunes, House Intelligence Chair, issued a deadline to the FBI and DoJ for documents related to the Russia investigation so the committee can properly evaluate potential corruption in the agency.

Rep. Ron De Santis was interviewed this week and talked about jail for a couple of these officials.

Congress has the obligation to provide oversight and the DoJ/FBI is stonewalling.

“Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray asked to meet with the speaker and we accommodated the request,” Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in an email. “I’d refer you to their offices for anything further.”

They basically went over Nunes’ head to pliable RINO Ryan.

Nunes said he reached an agreement with Rosenstein Wednesday night, after the Ryan meeting, and will have access to the documents – unredacted documents. One must wonder if they will redact everything significant.

Nunes has been seeking testimony at the FBI and Justice Department regarding the FBI’s involvement with the dossier created by Fusion GPS at the behest of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. The information tin the dossier was gathered from the Kremlin according to many reports.

The leaks out of the corrupt DoJ/FBI now point to the improbable scenario that Papadopoulos, not the dossier, launched the Russia collusion probe.

A drunk Papadopoulos told an Australian official something about getting information from Russians and, two months after the investigation was begun, the Australian told the intelligence agency. That’s what launched the probe?

Media wants us to accept this.

Paul Manafort is suing because the investigation has reached far beyond the election of 2016 or any collusion into 2014 testimony by Manafort which was unrelated to the case.

CNN reported that a source with knowledge of the Ryan meeting said it centered on Nunes’ outstanding document requests related to the dossier and his ongoing threats of contempt of Congress citations — not the special counsel investigation led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Trey Gowdy suggested that Paul Ryan was critical of Nunes’ aggressive efforts to get the documents, according to the fake news outlet Chicago Tribune.

Nunes has every right and he is the one acting appropriately. Gowdy and Ryan need to get with the program if that report is true.

As Jason Chaffetz said, the “Deep State is real”.

Fusion GPS is now pretending they want Congress to release transcripts of their closed-door testimony which is a political ploy. They can talk right now if they want. They don’t need Congress to release transcripts.

Sen Chuck Grassley addressed their lie, stating that it was they who had requested that the information remain confidential and reminding them they can testify publicly any time they want.

“Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”


  1. “we accommodated the request” And that doesn’t sound suspicious.

    It was Trey Gowdy, now worth millions, who says Nunes is going too far. Someone should confront Trey and ask where all the money came from.

  2. Well,,, reports: House investigators will get access this week to “all remaining investigative documents” – in unredacted form – that they had sought as part of their Russia inquiry, under a deal between Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes

    I’m cynical enough to wonder How would they know if they receive them all.

    • It is unacceptable for Rosenstein, who is involved in the scandals and coverups, to be in a position to control what documents are available. Anything the Trump hater Ryan does in a backroom is suspect. A decent person, which excludes Ryan, would have told them to not come over and see me, send the documents now or we vote on contempt tomorrow. The proper position on unapologetic Trump opponent Ryan is to assume he is lying.

  3. Papadopoulos was a nothing level volunteer who nobody listened to. This latest claim is pure bs.

    Nunes is not going to give up, give in. He and a few others are LIVID over the entire, TREASONOUS venture of the Left/Democrats.

    But once again, where is Sessions? And when will we have a REAL DOJ head?

  4. There was a time when I respected Rosenstein, NOT ANYMORE
    There was a time when I respected Mueller, ….Not ANYMORE
