Nunes threatens to 'impeach' Wray and Rosenstein

Share

Reps. Devin Nunes and Mark Meadows both said they are prepared to impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray if they do not produce the document that started the investigation into President Donald Trump's potential ties with Russian Federation in the 2016 election.

Nunes had first subpoenaed that and other documents from the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation in August. However, Nunes says only a mostly redacted copy was officially released to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which Nunes chairs.

On Tuesday night, Rep. Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that he has reached a "boiling point" with both Rosenstein and Wray over the electronic communication, which is due Wednesday evening. In a statement on Wednesday, Nunes said he and Chairman Trey Gowdy were given access to a version of the memo that contained the information necessary to move the committee's investigation of the Department of Justice and FBI forward.

"We're still in a situation where it's trickle down documents". And if the House were to take aggressive action against Rosenstein, it could give Trump cover to fire the deputy attorney general, who is ultimately in charge of the Mueller investigation. Nunes set April 11 as the deadline for the document production.

Congress has the power to impeach Rosenstein and Wray for contempt, as they failed to answer the subpoena.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, said Wednesday that the threat from the GOP serves "insidious purposes: to intimidate DOJ and FBI, to provide the President with a pretext to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and FBI Director Wray, and to undermine special counsel Mueller's investigation".

"Just the fact that they're not giving this to us tells me there's something wrong here", Nunes told Ingraham. "We are going to get the two pages", Nunes said.

Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., went to the Justice Department to view the document, which is said to spell out the justification for launching the investigation n 2016 into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia, CNN reported. Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey are all Republicans.
