COMMITTEE INVESTIGATION REMAINS “ONGOING”
by Sharon Rondeau
At that point, Nunes said on “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday night, he planned to begin impeachment proceedings of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy had previously been provided a heavily-redacted form of the document believed to reveal the rationale for the FBI’s launching of a counterintelligence investigation into whether or not the Trump campaign “colluded” with Russian-government officials.
The House Intelligence Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee, and Senate Judiciary Committee have been investigating the “collusion” claim as well as claims that the FBI and DOJ acted politically in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
The DOJ’s inspector general is conducting an investigation into claims of political motivations by the federal law-enforcement agency and its subsidiary, the FBI.
Since taking office, President Donald Trump has said that the search for evidence of “collusion” between the Russians and anyone associated with his presidential campaign constitutes “a witch hunt.”
In a statement released early on Wednesday evening, Nunes wrote that he and Gowdy met with Rosenstein and “were finally given access to a version of the EC that contained the information necessary to advance the Committee’s ongoing investigation of the Department of Justice and FBI.”
Although thanking Rosenstein for his cooperation, Nunes indicated that the subpoenas issued last August for over a million pages of documents to aid in their investigations “remain in effect.”
