Rep. Trey Gowdy never shreds his words when it comes to condemning individuals for their criminal actions. Remember what happened when Gowdy promised to expose Hillary Clinton for everything she has done during her time as Secretary of State? Gowdy’s latest move is definitely causing discomfort in FBI agents.
The House Intelligence Committee subpoenated the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department over the documents that may pull strings back to the Trump dossier. Both groups failed to “honor” the deadline, and it was extended to September 14th. This came packed with a nice warning, and Gowdy said that no one will forget the infamous events, noting that truth always finds its way out.
The FBI Director Christopher Wray and the US Attorney General Jeff Sessions were also warned, and they will have to provide information about the dossier. That’s not all. Wray and Sessions will have to give an explanation about their inability to hand in the information the first time round.
“We got nothing. The witnesses have not been produced, and the documents have not been produced,” Gowdy said, visibly irritated of not having the requested information in his hands.
Gowdy talked to agents at the Bureau who said that their compliance may interfere with the work of Robert Mueller.
This subpoena was Gowdy’s way to determine whether the FBI and the Justice Department are involved in the creation of the dossier.
Gowdy is trying to investigate whether the unverified information was presented to the court in an effort to allow surveillance on Trump and other individuals. “I want to know the extent to which it was relied upon, if at all, by any of our intelligence agencies or federal law enforcement agencies, and to the extent it was relied upon, how did they vet, or either corroborate or contradict, the information in it?” Gowdy said.
This is getting bigger and better, and we can’t wait to see the final result of the battle.
What do you think about this subpoena? Do you think Gowdy will get the information he requested? How will the FBI act upon the subpoena?
