Devin Nunes sets new deadline for DOJ, FBI to hand over materials on Trump campaign informants

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., called on Sunday for the Justice Department and the FBI to provide the House Intelligence Committee outstanding information about the use of FBI informants to make contact with members of the Trump campaign, setting a Monday deadline for his latest request.

Nunes, who chairs the House intelligence panel, blasted the DOJ and the FBI in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Sunday for "unilaterally" restricting access to some subpoenaed documents to the "Gang of Eight," a term used to describe a bipartisan group of congressional leaders often briefed on intelligence matters.

Nunes also slammed the referral of the intelligence committee's questions regarding transcripts and summaries of conversations between FBI sources and Trump campaign aides to Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence.

The new request seeks clarification on whether Rosenstein or FBI Director Christopher Wray is responsible for complying with the panel's subpoenas. Additionally, he is demanding the FBI confirm informants were used to gather information on the Trump campaign and, if so, how many were used and how much money was spent on the operations.

House Republicans have been at loggerheads with the DOJ and the FBI for months over their failure to comply with subpoenas issued by Nunes and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.

The FBI on Friday sent the House intel committee two letters, one classified and the other unclassified, partially complying with a subpoena issued by the panel.

"While the late-night letters, once again received by the Committee just before the deadline, address many of the questions outlined in the Committee's outstanding subpoenas, they have raised more questions than answers," Nunes wrote in the letter Sunday. "These questions include whether the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) leadership intend to obey the law and fully comply with duly authorized congressional subpoenas."

I believe the FBI has usurped a lot more jurisdiction than it is entitled too. DOJ believes they are little gods that can demand anything in the way of paperwork and call any member of government before their scourging trio of leadership and force them to respond to their illegal interrogations.
