Goodlatte redraws red lines Congress set for DOJ to meet their demands for documents, allowing slow-walking and obstruction by Sessions, Rosenstein, and Wray to…
The DOJ’s response to Congress threatening contempt and impeachment for noncompliance with demands for the production of 1.2 million documents is not unlike someone short on cash sending in their payment to the finance company but “accidentally” forgetting to sign the check. [[WATCH VIDEO BELOW]]
It’s a trick to buy time that has the appearance of a good faith effort. With Goodlatte and Congress, the pathetic response is equivalent to mailing the check back with a new due date in the future and an offer for an unsecured line of credit. It seems that Paul Ryan has stepped on them, told them to “just be patient.”
The unsigned check that DOJ has sent to Congress comes in the form of two US Attorneys who are looking into problems at DOJ, one in Utah rope-a-doping on the corruption cover up and another in Chicago working to devise a scheme to complicate what should be a simple matter of sending a van to the IG’s office, loading it with 1.2 million documents in question, and driving to Capitol Hill.
Three Congressmen, Nunes, Gowdy and Goodlatte, have set a new deadline for a sampling of the documents, the Comey memos which Sessions could have released immediately upon his firing of Comey but chose not to do so.
They may get them and it could shed light on the Comey circus, but it’s really playing into the diversion in doing so. There’s no evidence of Obama collusion or other regime misconduct in those memos, just more fuel on the feud between President Trump and the globalist operative Comey.
It’s a distraction and part of the DOJ, Deep State cover up. The documents that make a difference aren’t memos the liar Comey wrote to himself for future use in his defense. Comey knew what his vulnerabilities were and with Trump elected, would certainly attempt to construct false evidence to bolster his own claims. They should be being reviewed in a courtroom under oath as part of a criminal proceeding against Comey by now, not by panels on CNN.
Maria Bartiromo questions Goodlatte on his promise of three weeks earlier to subpoena and if necessary impeach DOJ and FBI officials if documents in question weren’t produced by a short-term deadline, which passed without action. She asks how many documents were received in response to his threat with Goodlatte sheepishly replying, “Uh, we have not received very many of those documents.”
He then paints a smiley face on the “some progress” they’ve made in the interim, the appointment of the two US Attorney appointments. That’s hardly consistent with the fiery rhetoric of a few weeks prior. Goodlatte says that following meetings with John Lausch, the Documents Czar, he believes the criminals at DOJ may finally decide to toss them the crumbs they’ve been so hungry for.
Bartiromo diplomatically points out that despite their ranting no documents have been delivered, asking what the next step is, what are they going to do. Goodlatte returns to his familiar milquetoast former persona, saying, “We have additional steps we can take and will continue to do that, there’s a lot of pressure on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and on the Department of Justice to produce these documents.”
He says if DOJ doesn’t play ball they’re willing to “take additional steps,” perhaps backward or taking the same unproductive steps over again. Bartiromo asks if he’s willing to impeach Rod Rosenstein. Goodlatte weakly replies, “All of those tools are on the table but I don’t think we should say what we’re going to do until we actually reach a decision that we have to do it.”
He continues, “But we have shown a willingness to issue subpoenas (empty threats), and to take our case to the Attorney General of the United States (empty words), and to take our case to the American people (blather weakly on television). We’ll continue to do that.” Essentially Goodlatte is pledging to continue to do nothing, or as little as possible so as to not rock the establishment cover up boat.
They also discuss a call that Andrew McCabe took that he claims was orders from the top, likely the Obama White House, through the Assistant Attorney General, which McCabe believed to be instructions to shut down the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
Goodlatte says the criminality could reach into the Obama White House (ya think?) and then goes into a long, drawn out filibuster of airtime that effectively diverts the conversation away from the fact that without the document production, with Sessions and Rosenstein schemes blocking their way, none of the Obama regime’s involvement is going to be revealed.
Enough with the big talk and backing down on deadlines, boys. Aside from Devin Nunes ripping a few pages from Rosenstein’s filthy globalist claws, it’s produced nothing. Enforce your deadlines. Impeach Rosenstein, Sessions and Wray and put someone in there who will cooperate with Congress rather than an enemy of the people intent on protecting the criminals and obstructing Congress in their oversight role.
