Nunes Threatens To Impeach FBI's Wray and DOJ's Rosenstein Over Key Document

It is considered a "central piece of information" in the Intel Committee's ongoing investigation into the FBI and related matters, according to Fox News investigative journalist Sara Carter. Nunes set April 11 as the deadline for the document production.

Speaking with Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, Nunes cautioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray that congressional investigators are "not messing around" as the men risk being held in contempt of Congress and possibly impeachment for not cooperating.

In early 2017 American intelligence agencies issued a report that found Moscow hacked USA political parties and conducted a misinformation campaign to influence the election in Trump's favor.

"We are going to get the document", Nunes said Tuesday, indicating he will move to impeach Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Mueller investigation, and Wray if it isn't delivered.

"To impeach Christopher Wray?" "We are going to get the two pages", Nunes said.

Nunes told Ingraham, "we're not going to just hold in contempt".

The story sought to minimize the role the Trump dossier - which was funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee - in starting the investigation.

A royal source said Barack and Michelle Obama , who are close to the couple, will not be at the wedding, the report said. Over the past few months, there has been much debate over whether the Obama's or President Trump should be invited.

Nunes and other Republicans have argued the unverified dossier was the spark that eventually led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation has resulted in the indictment of several of Trump's close aides and former officials.

Boyd did not address the "Electronic Communication" in the letter.

As previously reported, Nunes originally asked Wray for assistance on February 27 for an un-redacted copy of the originating "Electronic Communication".

The Justice Department also made 1,000 pages of classified materials available to the full House Intelligence Committee, which the department believes "substantially satisfied" Nunes' August 2017 subpoena.

Nunes appeared exasperated on Tuesday with the FBI's refusal to turn over to the intelligence committee an unredacted version of the two-page document used to justify the law enforcement investigation into the Trump campaign's contacts with Moscow.

According to the Post, the document is said to detail how the Russian Federation investigation started, at least in part because a young Trump foreign policy adviser boasted to an Australian diplomat in May 2016 that Russian Federation had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.
