House Freedom Caucus members Meadows, Jordan and DeSantis sent Trump a letter asking him to order AG Sessions to end DOJ obstruction and cover up, provide…
The House Freedom Caucus has been at the forefront of the effort to end the obstructionism and subversion emanating from the Department of Justice. They’ve been valiantly fighting the corrupt leadership within with little to show for it, given the magnitude of the offenses. Now they’ve determined the time for indulging the corrupt political operatives posing as public servants is over.
Three members of the Freedom Caucus, Reps Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Ron DeSantis (R-FL) are going over the heads of the corrupt anti-American criminals caught with their hands in America’s cookie jar. They’re making their case to the President of the United States, who also happens to be struggling with the same villains, who are leading a coup against him. The letter stated, in part:
We write to request that you exercise your authority as President of the United States to instruct Attorney General Jeff Sessions to immediately produce all documents requested by Congress relating to our investigation of certain prosecutorial and investigative decisions made by the Department of Justice and FBI in 2016 and 2017.
In May 2017, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein informed Congress that the Special Counsel’s investigation should not impede ongoing Congressional investigations. Additionally, Mr. Rosenstein requested that Congressional efforts coordinate with the Department of Justice.
In the year that has passed since these commitments were made, the Department of Justice has failed to fully comply with regular and repeated Congressional requests and subpoenas. Our power as Congress to conduct investigations is broad, inherent and mandated by the Constitution” As a separate and equal branch of government, we have a constitutional right to these documents.
To complete our independent oversight and investigative duties, we must obtain all documents responsive to previous requests by Congress. This includes the documents related to potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act; documents related to the FBI and broader Department of Justice’s initial investigation into the Trump campaign prior to the appointment of the Special Counsel; and the unredacted August 2017 memo written by Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein that articulated the scope of the Special Counsel’s jurisdiction.
The Department of Justice has obstructed Congressional oversight by refusing to supply necessary and relevant documents. As members of the legislative branch, we believe the best course of action would be for you to exercise the powers vested in the Executive to make the documents we require available to Congress.
House Republicans have been engaged in a constant battle for documents, with over 1.2 million requested and only approximately 9,000 delivered, many of them heavily redacted and of questionable value.
Rep Meadows said on Wednesday, “We’ve been consistent from the beginning that the American people have a right to know the truth about what happened at the highest levels of the Justice Department. This letter is another step in that effort for transparency.”
Many wonder why President Trump hasn’t taken these steps independently, on his own, particularly since he would likely benefit from the disclosure of the hidden information Sessions, Rosenstein, Wray and company are covering up.
Now it will be much easier for him to make such a move and much harder to explain should he for some reason decide to assist Sessions and the boys in their deception and obstruction by refusing to compel his crooked Attorney General to follow the Constitution and respect the legitimate demands of Congress.
