FBI director, Justice Department
deputy huddle with Paul Ryan
amid contempt of Congress threat

Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/3/2018 6:40:22 PM

The FBI director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with House Speaker Paul Ryan late Wednesday afternoon, the same day lawmakers were demanding that they turn over documents to the House Intelligence panel about the Trump-Russia collusion probe. A Ryan spokeswoman declined to discuss the purpose for the meeting other than that it came at the request of Wray and Rosenstein. The meeting comes as the House Intelligence Committee weighs possible contempt of Congress charges against the two officials. Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., has accused the men of withholding information about the handling of the Trump-Russia

Comments:
I would have loved to been a fly on the wall during that meeting. Why wasn´t Nunes involved? I don´t trust ANYTHING Rosenstein does. He is responsible for this entire fraudulent special counsel investigation. It never should have happened!!

What part of "deadline" do they not get?
Throw them in jail same as they would do to me or you until we followed the law.

The real question you should ask is, "Why should we trust Ryan?"

It seems obvious to me that the FBI and DOJ mopes were asking Ryan to call off the House committees that were daring to ask for their subpoenas to be obeyed.

If the FBI and DOJ give up the FISA warrant application, a number of people will go to jail. Hence the huddle with Ryan. JMHO

We can endlessly invent scenarios.

i.e. Maybe they tried to blackmail Ryan, maybe they tried to explain why the records can´t be produced, maybe, maybe, blah, blah, blah.

I hope Ryan has a recording of the meeting. Otherwise we may hear differing stories about what happened.

Nunes will lose ALL credibility if he lets them get away with not producing those documents. The red line was laid down. He had better not allow them to skip across, laughing all the way! At that point, nobody will care what any Committee asks them to produce, they will thumb their noses and go their merry way!

I’d put my money on #10’s speculation. It’s going to be all about damage control. What the arrogant jerks don’t understand is that the damage to their reputation is a moot issue. We the people know what they did, what they are capable of, and they will do whatever needs be done to try and redeem themselves. Not buying anything the FBI is selling.

Chances are they want a delay until the DOJ/IG issues his report soon. They are holding back what appears to be a nuclear hot potato also known as the FISA court search warrant application which in all likelihood contains bogus data from the Hillary Clinton paid for so called “dossier”. If that were not so, why has the DOJ/FBI not said so? At some point they will have to release those FISA court records.

If all that is so, and bogus data was presented to the FISA court as predication to obtain a search warrant to spy on the Republican candidate for President, data that was created by foreigners in the employ of the opposing Democrat candidate for President, it will amount to high level political corruption reminiscent of the old banana republics that is not supposed to happen in the USA.

Ryan & Wray, two big jokes. I´m sorry Nunes I think you just lost. These fake republicans will not stand up the democrats at the JD. Hmmm ...how many people really think Ryan will stand with Nunes? Can Nunes issue contempts without Ryan´s approval? It makes you wonder why Nunes was not in the meeting.

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R_FL) went on with Lou Dobbs on Wednesday and called out Speaker Paul Ryan for defending the deep state and refusing to defend Republican congressional investigators. Earlier today Paul Ryan defended the Obama FBI for spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. This was unbelievable. "Rep.

The Justice Department signaled Wednesday in a letter to Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will not recuse himself from Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation unless department officials find it necessary. Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote that Rosenstein "would recuse from all or part of any matter if recusal were deemed appropriate by Department officials who are informed about the matter. "Otherwise," Boyd continued, "[Rosenstein] has a responsibility to fulfill his oath to well and faithfully execute the duties of his office." Graham sent a letter to Rosenstein last

The curious case of Imran Awan, which sounds like an international spy thriller, is entering its third act. Awan was a congressional IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and he was finally fired just after he was arrested trying to fly to Pakistan last summer. Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. (Snip) Sources tell me that the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force has been looking into this matter since well before Awan and his crew of Pakistani

That wasn’t happening, so I decided to step in and see what I could do to help a little bit.” Here are other portions of her interview where Gates specifically says some criteria

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
