Devin Nunes threatens to enforce subpoena if the FBI does not release memo to the House Intelligence Committee which was used for Russian probe

April 5, 2018

  The House Intelligence Committee has been seeking a clean copy of the memo which was used to begin the Russian probe but to date the FBI has not been willing to hand it over. Now, according to this story, Devin Nunes is threatening to enforce a subpoena to get the document. Here is more:

Congressional investigators are still facing roadblocks over FBI records, despite promises of cooperation from FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to a letter obtained by Fox News on Wednesday.

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, wrote that he has been denied a clean copy of the 2016 FBI memo that kick-started the Russia counterintelligence investigation — now known as the special counsel’s Russia probe. 

“On March 14th, 2018, Committee investigators were given access to a still heavily redacted version of the EC (FBI memo known as an electronic communication), which — as I informed Director Wray the next day via phone — was unsatisfactory,” Nunes, R-Calif., wrote.

“On March 23, 2018, FBI’s Assistant Director for Legislative Affairs informed the Committee that FBI would refuse to further unredact the EC (FBI memo) based on its sensitivity. The document in question is not highly classified, and law enforcement sources have apparently not been shy about leaking to the press information that the Department and Bureau refuse to share with Congress.”

Nunes threatened enforcement of subpoenas that were issued last August if the FBI memo is not provided by April 11. 

  According to Devin Nunes the information in this memo is not highly classified but, while the agencies have had no problem leaking the information they wanted to get out to the public, they have been unwilling to cooperate with the House Intelligence Committee. Why is that? What are they hiding?

  Peter Strzok was removed from the Russia investigation after texts emerged between himself and his lover in which he displayed a vicious anti-Trump bias, as well as discussing an “insurance plan” to stop Donald Trump if he was elected which was discussed in a meeting with Andrew McCabe. It is believed that Peter Strzok authored the memo in question and so it would appear this is what the FBI does not want the House Intelligence Committee to learn.
