(CNSNews.com) - "We didn't waste the August recess," Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News's Mario Bartiromo on Sunday.
"We interviewed a number of key witnesses, including Bruce Ohr. And now we are proceeding to get additional documents from the FBI and line up additional witnesses."
Goodlatte, referring to the witnesses, said his committee is "digging them out one at a time. And we're making a lot of progress."
Bartiromo asked him, "Are you going to be able to interview people like (former Attorney General) Loretta Lynch, (former FBI Director) Jim Comey, (former Deputy Attorney General) Sally Yates before the midterm elections?"
"We are working right now to schedule them," Goodlatte replied:
If they don't appear voluntarily, we will subpoena them. We're going to do that work right through the fall. And whether it falls before or after the election, we're going to persist.
But we want them in as quickly as possible, as well as some other key people, Nellie Ohr, the wife of Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, her employer at Fusion GPS, and others who have knowledge of what was going on where a major law firm and an opposition research firm were actually working -- that are related to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign -- were actually working with the FBI to launch an investigation.

They better subpoena them very soon because the witnesses will fail to appear and hope that they can drag it out, especially if the Dems win the elections. Then the investigation of the corrupt FBI will totally stop, and new investigations of Trump will start.
Don’t waste our time indict, convict and sentence. Stop the bs.
The editor should hire an editor, its MariA Bartiromo not MariO Bartiromo.
It’s all for nought as long as Sessions is AG.
Does it not stand to reason that the more this is discussed in the media, the more likely liberals will screech and howl about lack of fairness? Since when is justice in it’s TRUE sense better served by media exposure?
Sessions neither comprises nor is coterminous with the DOJ. There are plenty of avenues for prosecution without direct involvement on the part of Sessions.
Was there a raid at the offices of Perkins Coie? If not, why not? Where are the bank records showing DNC and HRC (and possibly BHO) payments to Fusion GPS? Where are the payment records or payroll records for Nellie Ohr from both her work for Fusion GPS and the Federal agency(ies) she worked for?
If only we had an Attorney General....

Are you sure he didn’t interview Maria’s brother?
Just go ahead and scratch that off your plan...they will not show.
Supenia them and have US Marshalls pick them up for escort to the hearings. Will save weeks.
And dont forget Obama’ NSA adviser——Susan Rice. She is the direct link to Obama’s part in all this.
PROOF POSITIVE THAT OBAMA KNEW
Obamas CYA maneuver of January 3, 2017-the signing of NSA Data-Sharing Order Section 2.3 by AG Lynch is the coupe detat to blow out The Deep State. Obamas after-the-fact ex/order contains some unusual language particularly the convoluted language WRT The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Obamas Executive Order 12333:
NOTE WELL: Prior to the formal signing of Section 2.3, greater latitude ALREADY existed within the White House in regards to collection of information especially in relation to the Trump Campaign. However, once signed, Section 2.3 granted broad latitude to inter-agency sharing of information.
But by the time Obamas new executive order was signed on January 3, 2017, all that information was already in the possession of Obama White House.
Thus, Susan Rices January 20, 2017 email to herself takes on an even greater significance b/c no one was ever supposed to know about the REAL meaning of Obamas retroactive CYA.....until Rice stupidly laid it all out in an official email.
When Susan Rice stupidly wrote a CYA memo to herself, she inadvertently confessed to a series of crimes that added the time line and inferences about what the outgoing Obama administration illegally concealed from incoming President Trump and his aides. CYA memos are rarely a good idea. Most often, they reveal things the author never intendedala Susan Rices now-infamous email to herself.
WHY SUSAN RICE WROTE AN EMAIL TO HERSELF........the extraordinary email Obamas National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017........within minutes of President Trumps inauguration must have been her last act, more or less, before she vacated the White House. So obviously the email was important to her. But why would it be important to send an email to herself (the only person copied was one of her aides)?
If you read the email, along with Senator Grassleys letter to Rice, it is obvious that it is a CYA memo. But the question is, whose A is being Cd?
Most attention, so far, has focused on the first two paragraphs of the email, which describe a meeting that occurred around two weeks earlier. The participants included
<><> Sally Yateswho turns up like a bad penny whenever skulduggery is afoot
Rice made sure to underscore that Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities by the book. Rice writes Obama stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.
This is pure boilerplate.
It represents, obviously, the company line. But Rice did not write her email to cover Barack Obamas rear end. If she or anyone else had wanted to document the claim that Obama said to proceed by the book, the appropriate course would have been an official memo that copied others who were present and would have gone into the file. (My guess is that such a memo was written, but we havent seen it.)
The important part of the email is not the paragraph that purports to exonerate Obama, but the paragraphs that follow: From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.
The next paragraph of the email remains classified and has been redacted. The email concludes:
The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.
CONCLUSION Why did Susan Rice send herself an email purporting to document this part of the meeting? Because she was Cing her own A. Rice was nervous about the fact that, at the presidents direction, she had failed to share information fully as it relates to Russia with President
Trumps incoming national security team.
Her actions violated longstanding American tradition. Outgoing administrations have always cooperated in the transition to a new administration, whether of the same or the opposing party, especially on matters relating to national security.
Susan Rice is far from the brightest bulb on the tree, but she was well aware that by concealing facts ostensibly relating to national security from her counterpart in the new administrationGeneral Michael Flynnshe was, at a minimum, violating longstanding civic norms.
If she actually lied to Flynn, she could have been accused of much worse. So Rice wanted to be able to retrieve her email, if she found herself in a sticky situation, and tell the world that she hid relevant facts about Russia from the new administration on Barack Obamas orders.
What were the secrets that Obama wanted to keep from the new administration? We can easily surmise that the fact that the Steele memo was paid for by the Democratic Party; that the FBI had to some degree collaborated with Steele; that the Clinton campaign had fed some of the fake news in the dossier to Steele; and that Comeys FBI had used Steeles fabrications as the basis for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign were among the facts that Obama and his minions didnt want Michael Flynn and Donald Trump to know. Susan Rice, we can infer, was told to keep these secrets, and if anyone ever asked why she had failed to disclose them to Michael Flynn and others on Trumps team, or even lied to those people, she would have the defense that President Obama ordered her to do it.
There may be more to it than this. The redacted paragraph likely contains more information about what it was that Rice wasnt supposed to tell the Trump team. One of these days, we will learn what was blacked out.
The fact that Michael Flynn was Susan Rices counterpart in the incoming administration may also be significant. We know that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynneven Peter Strzok!reported that they didnt think he had lied about anything. And yet, Obamas DOJ and Bob Muellers investigationbasically a continuation of Obamas corrupt Department of Justice under another, less accountable namepersecuted Flynn to the point where he finally pled guilty to a single count of lying to the FBI in order, as he says, to end the madness and the financial drain.
Why were the Democrats so determined to discredit General Flynn? Perhaps because they wanted to pre-empt any outrage that may otherwise have followed on revelations that the Obama administrations National Security Advisor hid important facts from her successor during the transition, and may have lied to him about those facts, in violation of all American tradition.
And the sky is black during the day..all the time.
Liz you are an amazing fountain of information, you my friend SHOULD BE a journalist, YOU are a TRUE JOURNALIST!!!!
They better get it done before the election because if we lose the house these investigations will be shut down.
subpoena them and have them testify publicly, under oath, Rep. Goodlatte.
