In light of new information regarding a disgraced anti-Trump FBI agent, House Republicans are taking the gloves off and preparing for war against both the FBI and the Department of Justice.

We previously reported that Peter Strzok was fired from Robert Mueller’s special counsel after text messages surfaced between him and his Trump-hating mistress, attorney Lisa Page, and that information has since led to a firestorm of controversy. As it turns out, Strzok work in charge of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server, as well as the probe into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia during 2016 Presidential Election.


Additionally, he used the fabricated allegations in the so-called “Russian dossier” to obtain a FISA warrant on at least one of the members of President Trump’s campaign, Carter Page.

What’s worse than the actions of Strzok, who was fired from Mueller’s team in August, is that both the FBI and Justice Department withheld from Congress the fact that he was operating with a heavy anti-Trump bias while carrying out his duties. Now, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is fighting back, and he’s not messing around this time.


The Daily Caller has more:

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is threatening to hold the Justice Department and FBI in contempt of Congress for withholding details about why a top FBI investigator was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign.


“I have instructed House Intelligence Committee staff to begin drawing up a contempt of Congress resolution for DOJ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray,” California Rep. Devin Nunes, the Republican chair of the committee, said in a statement on Saturday night.

Nunes set a Monday deadline for the DOJ and FBI to comply with the committee’s list of demands, which includes requests for interviews with Rosenstein, Wray, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe as well as documents related to the anti-Trump dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele.

For months, House Republicans have been badgering the DoJ and FBI for information related to the Trump-Russia probe, but it’s been to no avail. In fact, they’ve been stonewalled by both agencies at nearly every turn.

But what finally led to this bold action was the reporting from the Washington Post and New York Times detailing Strzok’s extreme bias.

But the final straw for Nunes appears to be the bombshell revelation that FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok was kicked off of Mueller’s team over the summer after it was discovered that he exchanged anti-Trump text messages with his mistress, an FBI lawyer named Lisa Page who also worked on Mueller’s team.

The New York Times and Washington Post reported on Saturday that the Department of Justice’s inspector general discovered the text messages as part of an investigation into how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation.

Strzok was removed from the Mueller team in August, though Mueller’s office, the FBI, and the DOJ have left the circumstances of his ouster a mystery for nearly four months. Strzok now works in the FBI’s human resources department.

Nunes didn’t hold back in his statement announcing contempt of Congress charges, and he accused both the FBI and DoJ of “hiding” information about Strzok’s “documented political bias.”

“In light of today’s press reports, we now know why Strzok was dismissed, why the FBI and DOJ refused to provide us this explanation, and at least one reason why they previously refused to make Deputy [FBI] Director [Andrew] McCabe available to the Committee for an interview,” said Nunes.

Now, both FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are coming under increased scrutiny for seemingly blocking the House’s investigation.

“This is part of a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this Committee’s oversight work, particularly oversight of their use of the Steele dossier. At this point, these agencies should be investigating themselves,” said Nunes.

Indeed, they should. The corruption that manifested in these agencies during the Obama years is an utter disgrace to this country and the rule of law. Thankfully, patriots like Nunes are willing to stick their necks out to not only expose the malfeasance in our government, but hopefully start the process of cleaning house and restore the integrity of two of the most powerful agencies in America.
