Devin Nunes Chairman of House Intelligence Committee is being awful nice by giving the DOJ-FBI by the end of this week to comply with the subpoenas for Requested information before he starts talking actions. Nunes says they have to comply by the end of the week or he will hit them with impeachments.
If they do not comply, next steps could include impeachment of top Justice Department officials, holding them in contempt, and passing a resolution to enforce compliance, Nunes told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“I can tell you it’s not going to be pretty,” he said.
Nunes is backed by other House GOP chairmen of the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, as well as House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).
The DOJ and FBI have resisted Nunes’ requests for months, as his committee continues to investigate how and why they began investigating the Trump campaign in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential elections.
Last month it was revealed that an FBI and CIA informant, believed to be Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, approached several members of the Trump campaign: Carter Page, Sam Clovis, and George Papadopoulos. He approached Page in June 2016, more than a month before the FBI said it had a reason to begin its investigation.
Is Nunes being too nice? Or is this all about timing? We may think he’s being nice, but he may just be tightening the noose and we just can’t see it!
