Nunes Threatens To Impeach FBI's Wray and DOJ's Rosenstein Over Key Document

Devin Nunes, R-Calif., access to a redacted FBI memo that instigated the investigation of contacts between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign - cooling the lawmaker's threat to impeach department of bureau officials, reports say.

On Wednesday afternoon, Representative Devin Nunes, the committee's Republican chairman, and Representative Trey Gowdy, another Republican on the panel, met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, according to a statement by Nunes. However, Nunes says only a mostly redacted copy was officially released to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which Nunes chairs.

Speaking with Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Nunes cautioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray that congressional investigators are "not messing around" as the men risk being held in contempt of Congress and possibly impeachment for not cooperating.

Nunes appeared exasperated on Tuesday with the FBI's refusal to turn over to the intelligence committee an unredacted version of the two-page document used to justify the law enforcement investigation into the Trump campaign's contacts with Moscow. The existence of the two-page document was leaked by the New York Times and Washington Post in December previous year.

That report contradicted claims by several Republican lawmakers that the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe was based on a controversial opposition research dossier authored by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. "So they can either cough them up now, or it will get really complicated starting tomorrow night, and we'll have to take all the steps necessary in order to get the document". But Nunes said the final decision on contempt and impeachment is up to Speaker Paul D. Ryan. In response, the department delegated dozens of more staff to comply with the request and named a USA attorney from Utah, John Lausch, to oversee the document production.

"Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I'd like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today", the California Republican said in a statement.

"The deadline came and went, all we got is a phone call", Meadows said.

"I would certainly support that", Rep. Peter King, an ally of Trump's who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN earlier Wednesday when asked about holding Wray and Rosenstein in contempt.
