oceanedge2: No kidding!  This from the group supposedly all hung up on THE rule-of-law. 

 

 

They're all about the rule of law until it catches one of them, then they go on the warpath with smear campaigns trying to undermine the law.

nctarheel: 

This Sara Carter has been debunked, re-debunked, and re-debunked; and yet, you still post her articles like they are true.

 

Can you not find a legitimate media outlet with the same information?

 

 

It's all about hearing what he wants to hear, not about the facts.

The DOJ is still using the excuse of "National Security" when in reality the REAL reason they don't want these documents out is they are EMBARRASSING!  Too bad...  Cough em up!

 

 

 

 


Since you have apparently seen the documents in question, why don’t you provide Trump with the information?

How dare they impede Trump's meddling in an ongoing investigation? ROFL

No kidding!  This from the group supposedly all hung up on THE rule-of-law.  Pathetic.  Sara Carter is making a fool of herself and being paid well to do just that.  Whine, intensly, as if she knows what she's talking about.  She has fans and that is just sad.

@jimc91,

 

Are you finding it impossible to resource your original posts from anything other than fringe websites?

 

This Sara Carter has been debunked, re-debunked, and re-debunked; and yet, you still post her articles like they are true.

 

Can you not find a legitimate media outlet with the same information?

 

Why don't you check and see if this "reporter's" words appear anywhere else.

 

I bet not.

 

She's a fraud and many in the media have that opinion.

The Department of Justice reneged on a commitment to provide access to documents they promised to congressional lawmakers by Thursday morning. Instead, DOJ issued a press release after midnight suggesting they will only meet with a group of select lawmakers to discuss the matter on the same day the North Korea summit opens in Singapore, according to numerous sources and a DOJ statement.

 

Moreover, the Justice Department also issued new stipulations for briefing congressional members and limited the meeting with only the Gang of Eight, which is comprised of eight leaders within Congress who are briefed on classified intelligence matters.

“This is yet another line of obfuscation, stonewalling and delay tactics by the DOJ…”

These sources claim that briefing Gang of Eight lawmakers restricts the dissemination and discussion of the documents that will be taken for review. Although the DOJ contends that the documents are highly sensitive material, in reality, these documents are not considered to contain high-level national security information.

So while it seems that DOJ is complying, congressional sources say it means that the documents provided may be highly redacted.

 

A source familiar with the discussions stated that the documents, “…do not rise to Gang of Eight level material requiring such strict rules that would limit those members to discuss the material with other lawmakers.”

 

Lawmakers are also questioning the Justice Department’s decision to provide the documents early next week during the highly anticipated start of the North Korea summit. A senior Justice Department official announced the briefing is, “expected on Monday or Tuesday, depending on members’ schedules.”

 

On May 24, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), Rep. Trey Gowdy, (R-SC) and Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), met with DOJ officials and FBI Director Christopher Wray to discuss Nunes’ demand on April 24, for specific classified documents related to the committee’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Russia/Trump investigation. According to a source familiar with the discussions, the DOJ pleaded with the members, “not to say anything about the DOJ having brought the documents to the meeting.”

 

In last night’s press release, however, the DOJ admitted to having the documents. A senior Justice Department official accused the committee members of not reviewing the documents provided at the May meeting stating, “The Department and FBI will also provide the documents that were available for review but not inspected by the members at the previous briefing along with some additional material.”

 

According to sources with knowledge of the May 24 briefing, the DOJ argued with congressional members over who would have access to the documents during the meeting. The DOJ also limited the distribution of the documents to “only those members in the room” and would not allow investigators to review the documents for their ongoing investigation into the FBI’s handling of the alleged Russia/Trump probe.

 

“This request for documents is not at the Gang of Eight level,” said a source familiar with the matter. “This is yet another line of obfuscation, stonewalling and delay tactics by the DOJ. They were supposed to deliver the documents to Congress Thursday and then at the last second did what they always do: fail to keep their commitment. Now they are waiting until the opening of the North Korea summit in an attempt to bury it from the public.”

 

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fl) told this reporter that the DOJ’s failure to produce documents has put both Congress and the American people in a seemingly never ending predicament that does more harm than good for the nation.

 

“It’s the same old games and Congress is facilitating this behavior by continuing this back and forth with the Justice Department,” said DeSantis. The lawmaker noted that Congress has the power of the purse and authority to follow through with the contempt proceedings against DOJ Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein.

 

DeSantis added, “American’s are upset about this and have every reason to be. They could’ve turned these documents over more than eight months ago and answered our questions and we wouldn’t be in the mess that we are in now.”

 

A senior Justice Department official said in the press release, “The Department and FBI are prepared to brief members on certain questions specifically raised by the Speaker and other members…The Department and FBI believe it can provide information that is directly responsive to congressional inquiries in a manner that is consistent with its national security and law enforcement responsibilities, and is pleased to do so.”

 

The DOJ official said with regard to not providing the documents on Thursday, “Although the Department and FBI would have liked to provide this information as early as this week, officials have taken a little additional time to provide the most fulsome answers to the members’ questions as possible. The Department and FBI take congressional inquiries seriously and believes that the documents provided next week will be valuable to the Gang of Eight.”

Here we go again with another story from far right never never land to keep people from the real news.

How about Trump trying to destroy the G-7, and wanted to have Russia back into it. Putin could not have asked for more from his lackey Trump, and Putin did not even ask him to do it.

What every one should be concerned about is what he is doing to the G-7. This was a group formed by the US after WW2 to help make sure we did not have any more WW, and for over 70 years it has worked, and the US was the leader. Our parents who lived and fought in WW2 did this for us and it has worked. Trump and his enablers are destroying what they did for us as Trump moves on to be the first Dictator of the US helped along by his enablers who have not a clue on what is happening. The enablers are really worse than Trump. Now rather that discuss the documents which is a really silly subject. Discuss how we end the Trump path to dictatorship and leave our kids a country like we were handed. Stand up to the enablers and tell them you will not vote for anyone with a R behind their name in any election.
