Devin Nunes will push to hold Sessions in contempt of Congress

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said on “Fox and Friends Sunday,” that he is going to push lawmakers to hold Jeff Sessions in contempt of Congress.

The Californian Republican committee has been investigating serious allegations that the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act against the Trump campaign.

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

Devin Nunes sent a classified letter to Jeff Sessions two weeks ago. but the House Intelligence Committee Chairman claims Sessions did not acknowledge it.

Devin Nunes said he then sent Jeff Sessions a subpoena

On “Fox and Friends Sunday,” Devin Nunes did concede it was quite possible Jeff Sessions is personally unaware of the subpoena.

However, he added he won’t accept “excuses” relating to national security concerns in terms of his ongoing investigation of how the Russia probe was handled.

“How many times have we heard this argument throughout this investigation?” he asked

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise weighed in expressing support for Nunes on “Fox and Friends Sunday.”

“I have deeper and deeper concerns the more I see some of this, not only the stonewalling but what’s been in some of these memos,” said Scalise. “We’re also trying to get a lot of other information from the Department of Justice about this investigation, and everything that we uncover raises even deeper concerns about the direction.”

 

However, according to Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures,” The DOJ claims that has in fact responded to Devin Nunes.

Fox News reported that Devin Nunes called the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department redaction of his House committee’s Russia report “excessive and sloppy.” The report found that FBI agents “did not detect any deception during [Michael] Flynn’s interview.”

Flynn who served as President Trump’s national security adviser. pleaded guilty to a single count of making “false, fictitious or fraudulent” statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation under Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian probe.

“This just cannot continue where we don’t get information in a timely manner. Like I said, everything we have tried to get they tried to stop us from getting,” Nunes said.
