DOJ To Hand Over Official's Anti-Trump Texts, Amid Contempt Threat
Fox News ^ | 12-5-2017

Posted on 12/05/2017 4:00:07 PM PST by blam

The Justice Department is in the process of handing over to the House Intelligence Committee the anti-Trump text messages that got a key FBI official removed from Robert Mueller's Russia probe, Fox News has learned -- a move that comes as the panel weighs a possible contempt resolution.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., had demanded the text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer with whom Strzok was romantically involved. Both were part of Mueller's Russia team at the time. Page has since returned to the FBI, and Strzok was reassigned to the FBI's HR department after the discovery of the anti-Trump texts.

The existence of the texts first emerged publicly over the weekend. A source familiar with the discussion between the DOJ and House panel told Fox News on Tuesday that Nunes has been assured those messages will be turned over in the coming days.

The exact timeline is unclear, and only the relevant texts will be turned over.

Also unclear is whether this will satisfy committee Republicans who had been looking to move forward with a contempt resolution against top DOJ and FBI officials barring a breakthrough – after the agencies did not comply with a deadline to hand over long-sought information that goes well beyond text messages.

Nunes originally had given the agencies until “close of business” on Monday to “fully” comply with the panel’s demands. Otherwise, he threatened to move a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

No rule of law at work here, rule by partisan hack lawyers is all it is.

Here’s the test:

Will they hand over the usual redacted, blacked out crap that is meaningless, or the real stuff? Remember, the DOJ is under Republicans—Sessions and ultimately Trump. If they still stiff-arm Congress, you’ve got Deep State in your face, right there.

Wow, I found this from JUNE 2017:

BUSTED: Top @TheJusticeDept Witch Hunter Lisa Page’s Mom Loves Calling @realDonaldTrump Supporters Bad Americans

The BULK of Obama's heinous destruction of our government happened BEHIND THE SCENES, loading our agencies with Deep State operatives hellbent on DESTROYING our FBI, DOJ, IRS, DHS, blah blah blah..

And I really wish Trump would REINSTATE all of the military generals, officers, etc. that Obama sh*tcanned while he was in office!

Even our officials' MOTHERS are Pieces of SH*T.

Absolutely baffles me how anyone can be in law enforcement and support Democraps, especially after the past 8 years with the constant cop bashing which in turn encouraged the assassination of cops all across the country and then this absolutely disgusting display of bringing the mother of attempted cop killer Michael Brown to the Democrap convention, Hillary treated her like a blood sister. Oh yes, and banning police officers from wearing their uniforms lest a democrap getting offended and refusing to show the US flag on stage. How the hell can anyone call themselves a law enforcement officer while supporting that? It really shows how deep the sickness is.

Is there anything more useless than a “congressional resolution?”

Face it, the GOPe is shooting pool with a rope. If the GOP was a married man they would be the husband sitting in the corner watching another man screwing their wife.

“Lisa ‘big gums’ Page is a piece of work, ain’t she?”

I am halfway to believing that Lisa Page is another “Spawn of Hubbell” like Chelsea Clinton.

Who? Sessions? Is Sessions handing this over, or is he still on desk duty?

Yeah but these freakin’ FBI scumbugs Mueller, Comey and this Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, these are all FBI people, it’s unbelievable. This Mueller was director of the FBI, what the hell is he doing investigating a hoax invented by Hillary Clinton? He knows damn well this “Trump/Russia collusion” stuff is utterly ridiculous, it’s like searching to see if Trump colluded with Martians, yet there is Meuller being led around on a leash like a trained poodle doing the bidding of these anti-American criminal lowlifes.. This is not someone interested in law or law enforcement, this is a sc*mbag doing the bidding of criminals same as Comey. He’s an insult to every cop out there today.

Lisa Page is guilty on all charges anyone brings against her.

Hard to imagine anyone would have married her, and second, had an affair with her. Stryok’s wife must really be a piece of work - sure hope I don’t see her picture - likely give me nightmares.

The contempt of Congress is turned over to the Justice Department.
Which means criminal charges could be filed.

Here's what they say...

The exact timeline is unclear, and only the relevant texts will be turned over.

So, whatever THEY decide is relevant. In other words, we will show you what we want you to see, so shut up and pay your taxes!
