Nunes Will Hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Contempt

7

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said Sunday he will be pushing to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt this week for not complying with a subpoena.

His request for classified information regarding its probe into several issues has been ignored, including FISA abuse, Carter Page, et al.

The DoJ will not comply. In fact, Rod Rosenstein said Congress has no constitutional authority over them.

Nunes doesn’t know why Sessions has recused himself on every issue.

“We have to move quickly to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt and that’s what I want to press for this week,” Mr. Nunes told Fox News on Sunday.

The DoJ is running out the clock in the hopes that the Democrats will take back Congress.

The next step will be going to court to try to enforce the committee’s subpoena.

Mr. Nunes said he refuses to take the excuse that handing over the information would harm national security.

“How many times have we heard that argument?” he said. “This just can’t continue where we don’t get information in a timely manner.”

Nunes has had enough.

  1. Rosenstain needs to be arrested for violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 1505 obstructing a Congressional Investigation/process. and for violation of 18 U.S.C. Sections 1001a and 671`, (Pay attention to the 2nd paragraph of 671) for Felony Perjury in lying to a Judge to get a Warrant, (FISA Court). This arrogant SOB needs to be removed from his office in handcuffs by Federal Marshals.

    • Yes, but after his partner Sessions leaves. Sessions has given RR full support multiple times. The actions of Sessions are illegal just as Holder’s actions were.

  2. This is absolutely nuts. This needs to be straightened out fast. They’re stalling for the Nov. elections. I find these liberals despicable obstructionists.

    • Yes and I also find the actions of Sessions despicable. He could stop this at any time, he has full powers to do so. He could comply with the subpoenas, he has full power to do so.

  3. ” I find these liberals despicable obstructionists”. This has nothing to do with libs/demo/rep. This is the deep state. DC is totally corrupt. Neither side are there for the country. They are there for power. They got it. They want it. They will not give it up. So when will this change? When 10 million people get in their cars and drive to DC and shut it down. Not going to happen. The gov education system has done its job. Few critical thinkers left among the masses. The United States is over. NOG

  4. “Disclosure of responsive information to such requests can risk severe consequences, including potential loss of human lives, damage to relationships with valued international partners, compromise of ongoing criminal investigations, and interference with intelligence activities,” stated the May, 3 letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd.

    Reading between the lines suggest the DOJ is worried that evidence will be revealed that Intelligence “colluded” with the Five Eyes group to spy on a citizen of that group. This is the entire premise to the Steele Dossier. If this, or similar matter, is revealed the international community would be up in arms. The other four countries would rightly be concerned the US could be spying on Their citizens. I suspect they are covering up much more than we can ever imagine.

  5. What a great man Nunes is. Ryan, a silent co-conspirator in the coup, will block a vote if possible, which is a great chance to remove him. Ryan has a responsibility to enforce the law due to Congressional oversight of the DOJ. He hasn’t an ounce of courage or integrity.
