Barack Obama is doing his best to keep a scandal from breaking right before the election.
There are key documents he doesn’t want getting into Republicans’ hands.
This one person is the only thing keeping Barack Obama from disaster.
Getting answers about what happened during the 2016 election is a slow process.
The Democrats are trying to run out the clock, on the chance that their nominee Joe Biden will win the presidential election and that the Democrats will be able to stop investigations that could uncover information that could harm their party.
The CIA Director, Gina Haspel, is helping the Democrats reach their objective by withholding documents from the Senate, according to two Senate Republicans.
In a letter to Haspel, Sens. Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley accused Haspel of withholding documents and noted that the CIA won’t even schedule a phone call to discuss the documents that the Senate has requested.
“More than two months later, we still have not received any of the requested records that we detailed in that letter,” Johnson and Grassley, the chairmen of the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance Committees, respectively, wrote to Haspel on Wednesday.
The Senators mention that they met with Haspel’s staff once to talk about their request that the CIA provide any documents related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane, but the “CIA has not produced a single document in response.”
“Moreover, your agency has ignored multiple requests to schedule a phone call to discuss our oversight letter,” they said in the letter.
While there’s been more attention paid to the actions the FBI took against the Trump campaign, it’s unclear whether the CIA was involved or not.
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified two CIA documents on Tuesday that showed that the CIA uncovered Russian information that Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton instigated the Russian collusion myth in order to get the media attention off of her emails.
“From these reports, it is clear that the CIA has information in its possession that is relevant to the FBI’s activities and our investigation into this matter,” Johnson and Grassley said of the declassified documents.
Haspel said during her confirmation hearing that, “If confirmed as Director, I will uphold the Agency’s obligations to Congress and ensure that oversight works on behalf of the American people.”
“Your apparent unwillingness to speak with us on this matter contradicts your testimony,” the Senators said, mentioning that they had supported her confirmation.
“Both of us fully expected you to honor the commitment you made, but we are becoming increasingly disappointed by the CIA’s continued inability to timely respond to our legitimate oversight requests.”
They gave Haspel a deadline, and told her to get the documents to them by Friday.
“Further delay is unacceptable.”
