You guessed it, on the very day that Congress had to take action to try to get compliance while they had Rosenstein and Wray testifying, what did Nancy Pelosi do?
She took to the floor, on the House action vote, pleading to Rosenstein and Wray not to comply or cooperate with document requests which made the House subpoena necessary.
Then later in the hearing Rosentein referred to questions about the legality of the subpoena. He opened the door to noncompliance on that and other reasons.
The latest episode of the government defying the American people.
Wray, for his part, reiterated his claims of all the good the FBI does. He said nothing in the IG report, or Horowitz’s testimony, questioned the integrity of the institution of the FBI. How can this elaborate plot and rampant bias of a cabal from the 7th floor headquarters of the FBI not impugn the integrity of the institution? It does. Congress did not do that.
These top officials in the FBI were willing to risk the entire credibility of the institution, with their own, to do what they did. They didn’t care. Now they act as if all that didn’t happen. Instead they blamed Congress for its chase of documents.
Think about it, these career people put the whole institution on the line and they knew it. That’s abuse of power. Plus there has still been no accountability — except Comey and dufus McCabe getting fired. Yet the plot they started continues, by Rosenstein implying there might even be questions about the validity of the subpoena.
Another glimpse of how Rosenstein thinks:”ignore the tyranny of the news cycle,” he said. So officials use the very process, procedures of our top institution to obstruct and subvert Congressional oversight, and then complain about the news cycle. The news is tyrannical? It all happened within DOJ… now tell us about tyranny!
