The FBI and Department of Justice have finally met their match.
Trey Gowdy is fed up with the Deep State stonewalling Congress getting to the bottom of the FBI’s massive Spygate scandal.
And Gowdy just went on TV and promised to unleash hell with this jaw-dropping threat.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray are participating in a cover-up.
They are refusing to turn over documents requested by Congress about the FBI using a spy to try and infiltrate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Wray and Rosenstein’s behavior is leading a Constitutional crisis whereby the DOJ and FBI are thwarting the lawful oversight authority of Congress.
Gowdy appeared on Fox News Sunday and revealed that Republicans in Congress have exhausted their patience with these refusals to comply with document requests.
And the South Carolina Congressman stated Congress was prepared to use every tool at their disposal if Wray and Rosenstein did not immediately turn over the documents.
“Under the heading of minor miracles, you had members of the House working on a Friday night. Paul Ryan led this meeting. You had [House Intelligence Committee Chair] Devin Nunes, [House Judiciary Committee Chair] Bob Goodlatte, myself and everyone you can think of from the FBI and the DOJ, and we went item by item on both of those outstanding subpoenas.
And Paul made it very clear; there’s going to be action on the floor of the House this week if the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena request. So [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein, [FBI Director] Chris Wray you were in the meeting, you understood him just as clearly as I did. We’re going to get compliance or the House of Representatives is going to use its full arsenal of constitutional weapons to gain compliance.”
This is music to Trump supporters’ ears.
The FBI spying on Trump’s campaign is one of the worst scandals in American history.
And the American people are owed answers.
But the FBI and Department of Justice are working to keep the truth hidden.
Trey Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes have been pressing for answers.
Rosenstein and Wray tried to head off their document request by holding a briefing at the White House on the spying operation.
That did not satisfy Gowdy, Nunes and other Republicans who quickly realized that without being able to review documents it was impossible to know if Rosenstein and Wray were presenting the full picture of the covert operation the FBI ran against the Trump campaign.
Stefan Halper – the alleged FBI spy – made contact with three Trump campaign aides during the 2016 election.
And he maintained contact with one – Carter Page – through 2017.
Congressional investigators are demanding to know why he was dispatched to spy on Trump if the decision was made with political bias and how the information he covertly obtained was used.
The answers to these questions could blow the lid off the biggest scandal in American history.
