Devin Nunes threatens to try to hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress

May 7, 2018

  Over the weekend it was reported that Devin Nunes has threatened to hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress for not complying with a subpoena to turn over documents related to alleged FISA warrant abuse during the 2016 election. Here is more:

A top Republican ally of President Trump said Sunday he’ll push to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and GOP members of the House Intelligence Committee are frustrated that the Department of Justice hasn’t turned over documents related to the conduct of Justice Department and FBI officials in their handling of an investigation during the 2016 presidential election.

“On Thursday we discovered that they are not going to comply with our subpoena,” Nunes said on “Fox and Friends Sunday.”

“The only thing left to do is we have to move quickly to hold the attorney general of the United States in contempt and that is what I will press for this week.”

  I am just confused about one thing: Didn’t Jeff Sessions recuse himself from any and all investigations into the 2016 election and Russia collusion? If so shouldn’t the target be Rod Rosenstein?

  I find it highly unlikely Devin Nunes will have the votes to hold Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress but if he does this could give Donald Trump to opportunity he desires to fire Jeff Sessions and I think this is what it is really all about.

    DOJ response to Nunes request

    I think what we have learned over this “Russiagate” investigation is there is too much secrecy and it’s unnecessary.

    I know the DOJ letter says “White House” but this is a favorite trick. Who in the White House? – the telephone operator, the third assistant to the third deputy, the chef.

      Good point, there are probably dozens of people working in the White House on a regular basis.

    I heard Sessions on T.V. No go, not going to cough up anything but will meet with Nunes. Looking like the slimeball he is.
