DOJ to Hand Over Clinton Documents to House Committees

Kirsters Baish| A statement was released on Monday by the Republicans who chair the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight Committee which explained that the DOJ has agreed to hand over all documents that are related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s infamous private email server.

The FBI’s decision against recommending charges for Clinton for the usage of her private email server is outlined in the 1.2 million documents that are being handed over. These same documents contain evidence about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act’s request for Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

A statement confirming the deal with the Justice Department to obtain the documents was released by Virginia Representative Bob Goodlatte and South Carolina Representative Try Gowdy. The statement had no other details about when the documents would be handed over.

The joint statement read, “We look forward to reviewing the information to better understand the decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017. Congress has a constitutional responsibility to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”

The Justice Department was subpoenaed for the records having to do with the investigation last month by Goodlatte. The statement explained that they had met earlier in the month with United States attorney John Lausch. Lausch has been picked to respond to all requests for the documents by the Republican.

Even though House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes requested the documents multiple times, the DOJ only handed over about 3,000 of the 1.2 million documents which were requested.

Western Journal reports:

The delays prompted Nunes to threaten last week to initiate contempt or impeachment proceedings against FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if they did not provide access to the documents that launched the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Rosenstein eventually granted them access to view the document.

President Donald Trump has also lashed out at the DOJ and FBI for its slow response on the matter.

In one of his famous Twitter posts, President Trump tweeted earlier in the month, “What does the Department of Justice and FBI have to hide? Why aren’t they giving the strongly requested documents (unredacted) to the HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE? Stalling, but for what reason? Not looking good!”

Earlier in the month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions along with Wray asked Lausch to streamline the whole document fulfillment process.

Spokeswoman for the Justice Department, Sarah Isgur Flores, spoke of Lausch’s duties, saying, “Our goal is to assure Congress, the president and the American people that the FBI is going to produce the relevant documents and will do so completely and with integrity and professionalism.”

Western Journal wrote, “In addition to Lausch’s oversight, the FBI announced it had doubled the number of people working on the document requests to 54 staffers who are working each day from 8 a.m. to midnight.”

Hillary Clinton is probably shaking in her boots, and the truth is going to come out. She can’t avoid it this time, and when those documents are exposed, it could very well be the end of the line for the corrupt Clinton family.
