Chaffetz subpoenas FBI for full Clinton email probe file

 

 

 

 

This is the full hearing and in particular explains a lot about house rules work. Mr. Cummins himself had questions on procedure that were cleared up and helped explain why the special session was called.

Chaffetz subpoenas FBI for full Clinton email probe file

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz publicly subpoenaed the FBI’s full case file in the Hillary Clinton email investigation Monday, delivering the document demand to a senior FBI official during a contentious hearing where Democrats accused Republicans of mounting a partisan attack on Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“It’s ‘trust, but verify’ is how it works,” Chaffetz told FBI acting legislative affairs chief Jason Herring. “You don’t get to decide what I get to see. I get to see it all.”

The chairman also complained that the FBI was trying to decide for itself what was relevant to the committee’s probe.
“That’s the way a banana republic acts, not the way the United States of America acts,” he said. “I don’t expect to have to issue a subpoena to see unclassified information.”

All I can say at this point is GO OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE! Finally they found the moxy to take on their responsibilities.

Apparently there was quite a dust-up in this special called meeting between Democrats calling Election Badgering Against Hillary.  

I really am appreciative of their efforts because this could have implications far into the future.

    Chaffetz needs to team up with “Judicial Watch.”

    And we wondered why he didn’t do a damn thing…​Excerpt:
    These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

    How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

    Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

    Please read all of it.

    OK, where were these demands months ago?

    So here’s the Congress, OUR elected representatives, just now doing what Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch has been doing for the past three years. A good three quarters of the info that Trey Gowdy’s guys used in their email / Benghazi hearings was discovered by Judicial Watch. This is why the only federal-level political contributions I make are not to candidates but to Judicial Watch.

      True. But in this particular case Comey only testified before congress in June or July. It was the first time Comey and FBI deliberately stonewalled them on Clinton. Chaffetz got pissed at that point. Others. Have but this one created havoc I am guessing when all of them were on vacation

  4. I watched as much of this as I could stomach…especially when that mozlem piece of crap, Cummings, opened his goat-ass mouth. He tried to blow this off as a Republican conspiracy, a pathetic attempt to smear the FBI. NUTS!

    I day-dreamed of seeing a “Stalin moment” happen to him…

    All these hearings, investigations, grillings have, so far, come to naught. WHEN will they grow the gonads to ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING?

    None of us peons would last an hour if we did anything like this yet these reptiles are treated as royalty, untouchable, and walk….I need a drink!

    Lol. woke up after a “Smash Lineral” dream today. Hey I am with you. Every time a Dem opened mouth they proved how stupid and like a robot they were. I will give Cummins a one hand clap though. After he first objected and Chaffetz read him the rules all he could do and did was gracefully accept. As too the discipline who DO you call to act when the top agencies and their handlers refuse to comply? About the only ones I see would be US Marshalls or something. And same scenario. Obama has a deep grip on all. This SHOULD have been halted long ago.
