The FBI and DOJ Continue to Engage in Political Theater

For a very long time now, we have been a witness to what can only be called “political theater”. The FBI and the Department of Justice have slow-walked documents related to FISA abuse, FBI, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Clinton Emails and other inquiries. There are 1.2 million documents to be reviewed and redacted and only somewhat over 3,000 have been produced. Will this new appointment finally stir some action or is it just more theater by the Department of Justice. The president has demanded action. Will he get the action this time? Read on and make your own judgment.

As Written and Reported By Sara Carter:

Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Northern District of Illinois U.S. Attorney John Lausch to oversee the delivery of more than 1.2 million documents demanded by Congress from the FBI.  Congressional investigators claim the FBI has ‘slow-walked’ the release of the information needed for the lawmakers’ investigation and some lawyers are saying the DOJ’s appointment is nothing but “political theater” to avoid contempt of Congress.

Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray made the decision to tap Lausch over the weekend after a subpoena deadline imposed by Congress on Justice Department Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein passed without action.

President Trump also pressured the DOJ to turn over the documents on Saturday tweeting that the DOJ was “slow-walking” the requests to Congress related to the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send classified information.

“Lawmakers of the House Judiciary Committee are angrily accusing the Department of Justice of missing the Thursday Deadline for turning over un-redacted Documents relating to FISA abuse, FBI, Comey, Lynch, McCabe, Clinton Emails and much more,” the president said on Twitter…..
