(National Sentinel) Under Oath: During his marathon testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday regarding the ongoing Russia investigation, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s testimony contained “numerous conflicts” with statements made by earlier witnesses, Fox News reported.
The biggest issue, congressional investigators told the network, is whether McCabe was honest about the FBI’s probe into the infamous “Trump dossier” and the exact timeframe when he discovered it was funded by Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC.
Due to those discrepancies, Republicans on the Intelligence Committee will issue fresh subpoenas next week for Justice Department and FBI personnel, Janine Pirro reported as she hosted the “Hannity” program Wednesday.
Joining Pirro as a guest was Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who told her that “we have a major problem” that is brewing within the halls of power.
“We have the Department of Justice that has an issue with the subpoenas that have been issued. They haven’t answered all of our questions,” he said.
“But most importantly, you have an investigation that was started that it appears now for political reasons,” he continued, while “the Democrats have been claiming that there was collusion between the Republican and the Russians.”
“And what we’re finding out there was collusion but the collusion was between the Democrats, the Department of Justice, and the people who were doing this dossier,” Labrador said. “So, we have a problem and we need to get to the bottom of it.”
Pirro noted that GOP lawmakers on various committees decided to move ahead with subpoenas because FBI and DoJ officials were not responding to requests for witnesses and documents.
That, she added, must be frustrating for committee members.
Labrador said that FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein promised they would ensure that they would deliver whatever information the various congressional committees requested.
However, as Pirro pointed out, that information still is not forthcoming.
“We’re going to get to the bottom of this,” Labrador said.
