Devin Nunes to DOJ: Hand over docs on alleged FBI informant by Tuesday or it's 'obstruction'
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has set a Tuesday deadline for the Justice Department to provide documents related to an alleged FBI informant looking for suspicious ties to the Russians who spoke with members of President Trump's 2016 campaign.
In a letter sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday, the California Republican demanded the documents be provided to all committee members "and designated staff," which would go beyond top members of Congress which have been invited to view material related to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.
"DOJ continues to obfuscate and delay its production using an array of tactics, such as incorrectly categorizing the requested documents as Gang-of-Eight-level material in order to limit access," Nunes wrote in the letter obtained by the Washington Examiner. "Such conduct by DOJ is unacceptable because the...

David Brooks wrote: ...what we learned in the last paragraph of this memo is the investigation got launched, nothing to do with the Steele dossier. It had to do with this conversation this guy George Papadopoulos had with an Australian diplomat in London at a wine bar.
And he blabbed, oh, the Russians have this stuff on Hillary Clinton. When the stuff started coming out, as my newspaper reported about a month, the Australians said â went to the Americans and said, hey, whatâs going on here? And that was the beginning. And so that undermines the main narrative that this whole investigation is premised on some Democratic partisan work. Itâs not true....

Or if Mueller subpoenas Trump to testify and Trump defies the subpoena, itâs a constitutional crisis.
Or if Mueller comes up with substantial evidence that Trump is guilty of colluding with Russia or of obstructing justice but the House doesnât move to impeach him, weâll have a constitutional crisis.

"The Democratic Party has been slowly accomplishing the amalgamation since the 1930s, dismantling American Judeo-Christian values and fomenting the ideological transformation of this country via public education, endorsement of socialist policies, proliferation of the welfare state and polarization of racial relations. The progression gained force with Franklin Rooseveltâs Economic Bill of Rights, which had its ideological roots in Russian Bolshevism.
Incidentally, this was a period of widespread infiltration of the U.S. government by communists, communist sympathizers, and NKVD (predecessor of KGB) agents, to the extent that by the1940s, to some erudite observers, the American government looked like an extension of the Kremlin. Overzealous NKVD agents, unable to contain their excitement, called FDR âthe Kerensky of the American revolution,â to be replaced by Lenin." (americanthinker.com)

are those running the SBC that insulated from reality that after 50 years of failure, when the nation itself is moving on that this is what they would drag the church through? pushing more progressive policies as a means to building a "collective kingdom"?

Perhaps Trump's sycophant Nunes would explain why Trump does the following?

It was a painstaking process that was the result of a clash between legal requirements to preserve White House records and President Donald Trumpâs odd and enduring habit of ripping up papers when heâs done with them â what some people described as his unofficial âfiling system.â
Under the Presidential Records Act, the White House must preserve all memos, letters, emails and papers that the president touches, sending them to the National Archives for safekeeping as historical records....
