    House Republicans still want Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm behind the anti-Trump dossier, to comply with their subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill despite his plans to invoke Fifth Amendment protections, a GOP House Judiciary Committee aide told Fox News on Friday. The tension with the Fusion GPS co-founder comes as new details emerge about just how widely distributed the unverified and politically funded dossier was back in 2016. A Fox News review of congressional testimony, British court records, emails and other documents indicate that at least five sources worked through other government agencies or fed the dossier...

    Former FBI Director James Comey has rejected a request from Republicans in Congress to sit for a closed-door interview as part of their efforts to probe allegations of bias at the Justice Department and the FBI. Comey instead offered to testify publicly, according to a letter sent by his attorney to leaders of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Monday. “Mr. Comey respectfully declines your request for a private interview,” David Kelley, Comey’s attorney, wrote in the letter, which was obtained by The Hill. “He would, however, welcome the opportunity to testify at a public hearing.” Reps. Bob Goodlatte...

    Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said Sunday that Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is cooperating with the committee and will testify in October. “Nellie Ohr is cooperating. We have a date for her appearance before the committee for an interview on Oct. 19," Goodlatte said on Fox News's "Sunday Morning Futures." Goodlatte's comments come after Republicans last week threatened to subpoena Nellie Ohr after a deal fell apart that would have led to her testimony last week. The Ohrs have come under GOP scrutiny for their ties to a controversial dossier...

    (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...

    In April the inept and corrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that he was not going to create a special counsel to investigate the Mueller investigation despite calls from Republicans in the House to do so. Instead, AG Sessions stated that he was going to ask an Obama appointee to look into the situation. We knew then that Sessions was balking and doing all he could to prevent justice in his Justice Department and now there’s proof. CNN first reported that John Huber, the federal prosecutor in Utah, has been investigating Republicans’ allegations that the FBI abused a surveillance program...
  • Goodlatte's son says he’s 'embarrassed' his father’s 'grandstanding' got Strzok fired

    Bobby Goodlatte, the son of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said on Monday he is “embarrassed” that his father’s “political grandstanding” cost FBI agent Peter Strzok his job. Earlier Monday, it was announced that Strzok was fired on Friday after sending disparaging text messages about President Trump during the 2016 election. TWEET: "I’m deeply embarrassed that Peter Strzok’s career was ruined by my father’s political grandstanding. That committee hearing was a low point for Congress. Thank you for your service sir. You are a patriot." Strzok, a frequent target of GOP critics of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation,...

    So much for all of the anticipated excitement in Washington today. We were all set for former FBI attorney and Team Mueller member Lisa Page to show up and testify before the House Judiciary Committee. While it was going to be a closed session, at least some of the details were likely to leak out and several of the members have quite a few questions about Page’s text messaging history with her illicit lover, Peter Strzok. But now that’s all been put on hold. Despite having been served with a subpoena to appear, Page’s lawyer announced last night that she...

    The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said Wednesday that Republicans recently were forced to call in U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to testify before Congress, as he accused Page of “apparently” having “something to hide.” The revelation came after Page’s lawyer claimed she “will cooperate with this investigation,” even as Page defied that subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees. Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., warned that if Obama administration officials he referred to a congressional task force for testimony on the Russia investigation refuse to cooperate, they will face subpoenas. Nunes wrote a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., with a list of 10 names from the Obama-era State Department and White House on Monday, urging them to interview these individuals in an "open setting." During a Monday evening interview on Fox News, Nunes emphasized that because all the people on his list are American...
  • Hardline immigration bill fails in the House

    The Hill ^ | Juliegrace Brufke | Juliegrace Brufke
    The House on Thursday rejected a hardline immigration bill — introduced by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) — after leadership postponed a second vote on a compromise measure written with centrists. The 193-231 vote came a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending the controversial practice of separating children from parents who cross the border illegally. No Democrats voted in favor of Goodlatte's bill. House leadership had expressed pessimism on the chances for either Goodlatte’s legislation or a second compromise bill written with centrists, both of which come as the growing crisis at the border dominated headlines. The...

    The top FBI agent explicitly named throughout the recent Justice Department inspector general report as having anti-Trump bias will voluntarily go before Congress. In a letter sent Saturday and made public Sunday to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, the lawyer for Peter Strzok says he will voluntarily appear and testify before the panel, and “any other Congressional committee that invites him.” Aitan Goelman said the idea that Strzok would have to be subpoenaed to appear is “wholly unnecessary.”

    FBI agent Peter Strzok offered to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in a letter from his attorney released on Sunday. The letter was drafted by Strzok's attorney Aitan Goelman and was sent to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.). The letter comes amid reports that Goodlatte had begun initiating procedures to subpoena Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling after it was revealed he sent anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 presidential campaign. "While you are, of course, free to continue pursuing this process, it is wholly unnecessary," Goelman wrote in the...

    The White House said Friday that President Trump supports House legislation that closely tracks his priorities on border security and limiting legal immigration, walking back comments he made on national television rejecting the GOP bill. The reversal came after hours of confusion on Capitol Hill, where Trump’s words roiled an already fragile internal debate between conservative and moderate House Republicans who have been trying to find an immigration compromise after months of false starts. “The president fully supports both the Goodlatte bill and the House leadership bill,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said, referring to legislation drafted by House Judiciary...

    Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) today called for an investigation into allegations that the Obama Justice Department pressured the FBI to shut down its Clinton Foundation probe during the 2016 presidential election. A recent report issued by the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General contained disturbing information that the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General, who is the top staff person in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General and advises on all major investigations and policy matters, called former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to express displeasure that FBI agents were pursuing a...

    Social media took center stage on Capitol Hill again Thursday, April 26, 2018. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing examining the “Filtering Practices of Social Media Platforms.” While certain Republican members of Congress and the pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk argued social media platforms are politically biased against conservatives, other witnesses and Democrats claimed the hearing was “ridiculous” and a distraction. […] Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) spoke next (after Bob Goodlatte), questioning Congress’ priorities in addressing how social media sites run, rather than discussing potential Russian interference in the election through social media. “In short, House Republicans have no...
