With direct and specific oversight responsibility over the U.S. Department of Justice, Chairman Goodlatte is one of the key congressional leaders looking into the myriad of issues with the former DOJ and FBI officials running the agencies.

    A Republican congressman said Tuesday he’s rounded up enough GOP co-sponsors to force multiple immigration votes on the House floor. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) told The Hill that he has secured support from more than 40 House Republicans on a resolution that would allow debate and votes on four separate immigration proposals. Etc...

    Tomorrow Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce the assignment of U.S. Attorney John Lausch to facilitate the production of documents from the DOJ (Horowitz/Huber) to the House Judiciary Committee, and Chairman Bob Goodlatte. Mr. Lausch is a Trump appointed U.S. Attorney from outside Washington DC. John Lausch currently heads the Northern District of Illinois which includes Chicago, and this specific U.S. Attorney has extensive experience in complex cases of conspiracy and political corruption; a key skill-set given the issues within the Horowitz/Huber investigation of potential politicization of the FBI and DOJ offices. Accepting the OIG report is almost certainly the...

    The Justice Department failed to meet an initial deadline to give the House Judiciary Committee 1.2 million documents related to the charging decisions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, possible abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility's recommendation to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. A Republican Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News late Thursday that the Justice Department had "not yet" complied with the March 22 subpoena issued by committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. The aide added that the committee was "working with officials at DOJ to take immediate steps...

    House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte appears on Fox News to discuss the ability of Federal Prosecutor John Huber to investigate the criminal conduct within the FBI and DOJ. My notes follow the interview: Points to note: ♦ The flow of investigative documents from IG Horowitz to Goodlatte (congress) slows down at the same time as Federal Prosecutor John Huber is appointed by AG Jeff Sessions to parallel the Inspector General and look at the identified criminal conduct. Duh. Why? Because releasing criminal evidence to congress, in advance of indictments, would be nuts. ♦ Prosecutor John Huber can subpoena witnesses and...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte subpoenaed the Justice Department on Thursday for documents regarding the charging decisions in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, potential abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Goodlatte, R-Va., who has said he would not seek re-election in November, penned a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday, attached to the document subpoena. Goodlatte requested documents related to the Clinton email investigation and noted that only a “fraction” of those documents had...
  • Goodlatte [GOPe Free Traitor] Allies With Indian Tech-Workers to Boost His Immigration Reform Bill

    Breitbart ^ | 8 Mar 2018 | NEIL MUNRO
    The GOP chairman of the House judiciary committee is trying to boost his immigration-reform and DACA-amnesty bill by including a separate bill to accelerate the immigration of Indian and Chinese tech-workers. The separate bill, numbered H.R. 392, allows faster delivery of green cards once Indian or Chinese guest-workers — such as H-1B or L-1 visa workers — get initial approval for immigration. The delivery process does not allow more than 7 percent of each year’s green cards be given to approved people from any single country, so many approved Indian and Chinese workers are stuck in their own country backlogs.[...]

    The FBI this week detailed to Congress a series of mistakes and missed opportunities to intervene before a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida -- including a revelation that staffers knew two warnings about suspect Nikolas Cruz were related, but still closed the case. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich made the comments in a closed briefing Tuesday with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees. In a summary released Wednesday to Fox News, Bowdich cited two tips that the FBI received about Cruz in September 2017 and January 2018 that were mishandled.

Republican Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, respectively the chairmen of the judiciary and oversight committees, sent a note making the request to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein.

(full pdf’s below – #1 and #2) There are nuances in each response specific to the statutory roles of each Chairman and the specific requests made by each committee.  Reflected in Judge Collyer’s responses is a need for careful consideration of each unique request.♦House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes holds primary oversight authority over the aggregate Intelligence Community (IC).  Chairman Nunes has requested the transcripts from the FISA Court during the DOJ/FBI Title-1 surveillance...
  • Chairman Goodlatte Requests FISA Court Documents From Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer

    02/07/2018 5:18:54 PM PST · by Enterprise · 52 replies ^ | February 7, 2018 | Sundance
    Chairman Goodlatte has written a letter to Presiding FISA Court Judge Rosemary Collyer, requesting the FBI application documents that underwrite the October 21st, 2016, “Title 1” surveillance request against Carter Page. Goodlatte is cutting to the chase and requesting the underlying FISC material directly from the court as provided by the DOJ and FBI. The Goodlatte request presents a very interesting dynamic because Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer was the FISC Justice who wrote the extensive 99-page opinion (based on the reporting by NSA Director Mike Rogers and the admissions from the Department of Justice) that outlined the intentional abuse and...

  • FBI Texts Discuss “Destroying Evidence”, Scramble To Find Hard Drives: Report

    During a Sunday exchange between House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo over recently released FBI text messages, Bartiromo asked if there were any unreleased texts between two anti-Trump FBI agents referring to destruction of evidence. Goodlatte gave a guarded response to Bartiromo’s question, however he did mention an “earlier investigation led by former director Comey” in which evidence was destroyed – including by people working for former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton: Bartiromo: After the election, they talked about this “secret society,” did they also talk about destroying evidence? I’m told there are some texts that...

Chairman Goodlatte holds primary oversight authority over the entire Justice Department. Part of the conversation turns very interesting, and provides an indicator into the next phase, when Bartiromo mentions messages between FBI Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ Attorney Lisa Page surrounding an intent to “destroy evidence”, during their participation in the Clinton investigation.

    Congress Quietly Pushing Bill to Require National Biometric ID for ‘ALL Americans’ Earlier this month, Rep. Bob Goodlatte [R-VA-6] introduced H.R.4760 – Securing America’s Future Act of 2018, a sweeping bill that entails everything from Education and the Workforce to Homeland Security to the military. Also, tucked away in this 400-page behemoth of a bill are the details of a new biometric National ID card that could soon be required for everyone. Not surprisingly, there is almost no media coverage on this legislation.

    Calling proposed immigration reform legislation “devastating” to Western Growers members, association president and CEO Tom Nassif alerted members that the group will work to stop it from becoming law. The immigration reform package, the Secure America’s Future Act, was authored by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. House leaders passed a continuing resolution on Jan. 18 that will fund the government for another four weeks. Facing a midnight deadline Jan. 19, the Senate had still not passed any bill to keep the government operating. According to Nassif, the House passage of the continuing resolution included a commitment to vote on...
  • Giddy Up – Friday Night Document Surprise from Office of Inspector General…

    Well, well, well… here’s a surprise. Office of Inspector General has apparently begun giving Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte the 1.2 million pages of evidence from the year-long inspector general investigation into FBI and DOJ politicization: As previously discussed, Inspector General Michael Horowitz had promised to deliver around 1.2 million pages of documents from his investigation to Chairman Bob Goodlatte on/around January 15th, 2018. The DOJ Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs is Stephen Boyd; he’s a Trump appointment and replaced the politically corrupt Peter Kadzik (John Podesta’s pal). Boyd is the liaison between the DOJ and Congress responsible for complying...
