House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said that he will “impeach” FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for refusing to hand over documents regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, according to Politico.
During an interview last Tuesday on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Nunes said Rosenstein and Wray are in the crosshairs for what appears to be a massive Clinton cover-up.
“I can tell you that we’re not going to just hold in contempt, we will have a plan to hold in contempt and impeach,” Nunes said.
Nunes was referring to the FBI and DOJ missing the initial April 5 deadline to give the committee roughly 1.2 million documents. The documents regard alleged FISA abuse, the Clinton email investigation, and the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Democrats continue to claim that former President Barack Obama’s administration followed the law in the Clinton investigation and with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
Nunes told host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday that he was going to turn up the heat until the DOJ and FBI begin complying with federal investigators.
“We are going to get the document. We are going to get the two pages,” he said. “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.”
A portion of the documents covers the FBI’s initial probe into Clinton’s use of a private server to send and receive classified information.
Nunes wants to know if then FBI Director James Comey allowed Clinton to skirt charges for compromising national security.
Congress also wants to see the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility report, which recommended McCabe be fired for lying four times to investigators.
McCabe lied numerous times when questioned about authorizing bureau leaks to The Wall Street Journal in October 2016 about the Clinton email probe.
Congress also wants to see the FISA application that the DOJ and FBI submitted to obtain a warrant to spy on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Nunes made it very clear that if Wray and Rosenstein don’t begin complying, he’s going to work to have them held in contempt of Congress and impeached.
