On Monday, Rep. Ron DeSantis said that Congress is cracking down on individuals not complying with requests related to the Trump-Russia investigation.  Congress is preparing to “hold members of the FBI and Justice Department in contempt for not complying with requests related to the Trump-Russia investigation.” 

“‘Devin Nunes has been trying to get this information from DOJ and the FBI for months and they’ve stonewalled every step of the way,’ Mr. DeSantis, Florida Republican, said on Fox News.'”

Nunes of California, has been investigating the relationship between Robert Mueller and President Trump and whether or not there was collusion involved with the Russians.  Nunes pointed to Peter Strzok, a top FBI official who was also removed from the case last summer.  It was later found that Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump messages in emails to his mistress, who was also an FBI lawyer.

“‘The special counsel was not upfront about this. This happened months ago and just now this news is finally hitting,’ Mr. DeSantis said”

Strzok was also investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails during the presidential campaign.  Clinton was caught using a private server and personal device for State Department emails.

President Trump tweeted his response saying that Strzok was “tainted” but the investigation into Clinton’s emails “started to make sense.”

Members of Congress can not just threaten to hold other officials in contempt, but need to actually follow through on the consequences of these people’s actions in order to get the information needed.

“‘They’ve shown a pattern of the last year saying we will comply and then the compliance isn’t quite 100 percent. It’s maybe half. We need to make sure we get all the information,’ Mr. DeSantis said.”

    The DOJ and FBI’s refusal to comply with multiple Congressional Intelligence Committee subpoena’s justifies the firing of all those held in Contempt.. Fire them with total loss of all Gov’t benefits, including Pensions.

  • Keith

    Exactly. Fire these people right now. nough of this bullshit. They are supposed to be working for us, not Hillary!

  • RERJR

    It makes me angry that some FBI people including Comey leak everything they want to the NY Times but they won’t share it with Congress. That’s a firing offense and criminal.

  • markypolo

    Take away their pensions and Lock the lying, thieving democrats in Prison! That might “wake” them up.

    • Tar Heel58

      I’m all for that. They’ll tell you this is not their Country, and I agree with them.

  • Babsan

    DOJ,FBI are 95% Obama/Clinton scum and needs to be eliminated asap

    • Replier

      No 95% is not correct. Most FBI agents are great people doing a dangerous job and are great agents. What has happened is that Obama has during his 8 years in office corrupted the Federal Government and placed crooks and liars in charge of Federal agencies. Obama turned the Federal Government into one large criminal organization violating laws and the Constitution. The IRS, the EPA, the Justice Department and the FBI became his enforcement arm to go after political enemies and groups that opposed his political agenda. Most dangerous POTUS in the history of the US. The legacy Obama swamp needs to be cleaned out and why Jeff Sessions is not doing this is a mystery.

      • Tar Heel58

        No it’s not, Jeff has a history with Clinton, Deep State. This is pitiful, President needs to fire every body that has violated his trust or maybe even has idea that their not loyal.

      • Pathfinder0100

        Ya know tar heel–I would like to see all of the Military leaders that Obama left in charge replaced by those that Obama fired, wouldn’t you??

      • Tar Heel58

        Yep. He get rid of almost all battlefield Commanders. A lot of high ranking NCO’s retired as well. He barely had a skeleton crew with any real experience.

      • David McAllister

        Unfortunately you are correct.

        Per Director of FBI’s statement there are 37,000 full time active FBI employees in every country of the world and every state of the USA and its territories. Currently, per Director’s testimony to Congress, there were 1,000 thwarted terrorist attempts in the USA alone in 2017. Details are missing, now, for Two Border Agents killed in El Paso (crickets). Las Vegas shooter investigation??? A Total mystery, month’s later!!! YEP!!FBI working hard to keep America safe…but one terrorist rents a truck and mows down pedestrians, FBI to your rescue. 9/11, FBI field office in Phoenix, Arizona was following 9 foreign individuals taking flight lessson’s on “commercial aircraft, in commercial in-flight protocols” ONLY. YEP! FBI to the rescue…folks, FBI is only good for USA political skull-duggery. Pray. Amen. God Bless America and ALL Americans. Read A Bible. NKJV Psalm 128.

  • William Sasman

    Pass time to clean up the FBI. They are suppose to be our protectors and not someones cover. There in business to hold the law and go after those that break it be it Republican or Democrat.

    • Evermyrtle

      Who will protect,us, as Conservative Americans, from the FBI!

      • Doris Will

        If I remember correctly, some of the agents were furious because Hillary was not going to be charged, Where are they? Those are the people we should be talking with. I think that there a lot of truth hidden somewhere, I would like to know what it is,

      • Tar Heel58

        Those people got reprimanded and split up and posted out of Country. Can’t have those secrets being exposed.

        Who will guard the guards – Quis custodiet, ipsos custodes – Decimus Iūnius Iuvenālis known in English as Juvenal , was a Roman poet active in the late first and early second century AD.

      • Tar Heel58

        Ma’am that’s a good question. Reason we must keep the 2nd Amendment at all cost. Without it I really don’t like to think what life would be like. They can arm anyone for any reason and then blame whole towns being exterminated by one of their many hate groups financed by Soros. There’s no end if we don’t stand up now.

    • Tar Heel58

      Obama went deep in FBI,EPA,NSA and every other government organization. But you have to start somewhere.

  • Maggiemae

    Action is long past due. This country has suffered at the hands of Hitlery Clinton for way too long. I always thought that the FBI was a group of honest, trustworthy people. Apparently that was just a ‘fairy tail’. It became so obvious after Clinton lost….that fair minded and honest was not part of the plan.

    • Fugg

      The FBI has never been a group of honest, trustworthy people. Hoover was a homosexual cross dresser that collected damaging evidence on every politician and used that info to effect elections and policy.

  • FreemenRtrue

    The Deep State just laughs at Congress. It works the same way the heretical Jesuits defied Pope St. John Paul II – we’ll be here when you are gone – like little imps in eternal fire.

  • Morgan23

    Congress holds the purse strings. Defund the FBI until it turns over the information and fires the culprits.

  • thekid

    How ironic is it that one of our chief federal law enforcement agencies refuses to comply with the U.S. Congress. This is proof that Senator Joe McCarthy was correct in his assumptions that our government is full of communist and their sympathizers. Joe McCarthy was beat down, just as the communist are trying a beat down on Trump.

  • messup

    The cover-up is now unfolding before America’s eyes. Congressional Hearings with FBI Director have turned into an “obstruction-of-justice” quest aimed at fitting two prongs of DNC Impeachment process evolving: 1) Comey’s firing was an “abuse of Power” by President Trump (therefore an impeachable offense) – per Democratic lawmakers meme, and 2) “Unfit, mentally” to occupy the Presidency. These are the two prongs of these FBI Congressional Hearings (per Democratic Socialist’s of America), now unfolding before We The People’s eyes. An obvious attempt at meeting (and exceeding) George Soros and Media Matters stated goals…a Welfare State. Pray. Amen. God Bless America and ALL Americans. Read A Bible. NKJV Psalm 128.

    • jackw97224

      I think Jehovah God no longer “blesses” Amerika as it has turned its collective/commie/socialist back on Him. Sure, there are a few real Christians remaining but the bulk have “bought” the “statist” spiel of the welfare state politicians. This will end badly though I suspect there are years remaining until the economic collapse to the bottom of the abyss arrives.

  • jackw97224

    Well, politics is violence so it is poetic justice when politicians “eat” their own.

    Back when I was a coporate gen counsel of a big public company and then later on as a lawyer I had contacts frorm the FBI that improperya)sought and b) volunteered information and favors offering them in return, That goes back to the days of J. Edgar Hoover. Disohonestyand improperr conduct were rife. And the FBI hired lawyers but not always( seldom?) hired the best and brightest. Indeed I remember a US attorney apologizing for the conduct ofn FBI agent whohe was forced to use.
