(National Sentinel) Swamp Drain: House Republicans for weeks have publicly discussed theories and scenarios regarding the actions and motivations of key FBI and Department of Justice officials who appear to have conspired against then-GOP candidate Donald J. Trump.
Now, however, a report on Wednesday claimed that Republicans are holding “secret talks” while building criminal cases against those key FBI and Justice Department officials.
As reported by Politico, a group of Republican House members have gathered in secret for weeks to investigate potential corruption at the department after being frustrated by their lack of progress in getting DoJ officials to turn over documents and other materials to explain how the FBI used the infamous “Trump dossier.”
The site noted further:
A subset of the Republican members of the House intelligence committee, led by Chairman Devin Nunes of California, has been quietly working parallel to the committee’s high-profile inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. They haven’t informed Democrats about their plans, but they have consulted with the House’s general counsel.
Those familiar with the chairman’s plans say the goal of the effort is to point out what several committee Republicans believe is systemic corruption and an ongoing conspiracy by upper FBI and DoJ ranks.
The group plans to release a report early next year laying out their concerns about DoJ and FBI officials tied to the “Trump-Russia collusion” and Clinton email investigations. They may also seek a vote in Congress to declassify portions of their evidence.
In the past, these GOP members have pointed out that there doesn’t appear to be any evidence to support collusion between the president’s transition team and Russia, but there is plenty of evidence to suggest Clinton criminally mishandled classified information.
Yet, under then-FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, no charges were filed against the Democratic presidential frontrunner last year and in fact, it appears as though Comey and the DoJ exonerated Clinton months before the FBI even interviewed her.
Whatever evidence the secret Nunes-led group produces, it could be used to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia collusion investigation.
Others believe Mueller is now conducting an impeachment probe.
“I hate to use the word corrupt, but they’ve become at least so dirty that who’s watching the watchmen? Who’s investigating these people?” Nunes said in a Fox News interview earlier this month. “There is no one.”
