I have tried to stay uninvolved with the Department of Justice and FBI (although I do not legally have to), because of the now totally discredited and very expensive Witch Hunt currently going on. But you do have to ask why the DOJ & FBI aren’t giving over requested documents?

“Knowing the past, they probably are not going to meet the deadline.”
I think the American people are beginning to see what it is that we have been after for a very long time. And that is, is it common, or does it ever happen that the counter intelligence agencies or capabilities of this country, are they used to target political campaigns? We need to know that answer. The Democrats are hiding because they are married to the Russia Gate fiasco that has been going on for so long.
Most of the American people, including most people in politics, would be very, very worried if the FBI and others are running informants into our campaigns.
Very simple question, it deserves a very simple answer. We have been asking that question for many, many months. On Friday we thought we had a meeting on Friday. But we received a letter almost at midnight Friday night, a textbook swampy example of what they do here in Washington is to tell you they are going to get it by the end of the week and wait till nearly the stroke of midnight.
They provided many documents last week, we cleaned up most of what was on the table, except for the most important piece. First Issue: You can’t Use Gang of Eight. You can’t take information that our investigators and our committee members found and then retroactively say NO! NO! Sorry Congress, we are going to move that so only the leaders in Congress can see this information, when it’s information that we dug up. We will handle that today. We are going to meet with the Director of National Intelligence. Hopefully, we get somewhere on that issue.
Second Issue: Did you or did you not run informants into the Trump Campaign? Especially, before the investigation even began.
How did this investigation begin according to the New York Times and the Mainstream Media?
1. The DNC email dump in July
2. Our great friend from Australia gave us “five eyes” intelligence so that we can open the investigation. (That’s not True) There was no Five Eyes intelligence product that was used. It was ran through the State Department from State Department people who still need to be interviewed and who are now talking to their friends in the mainstream media. They say they are the ones who got that information to the FBI. That would be totally irregular how you open this investigation in the first place. What people are ignoring is: What if parts of that story are not true?
3. Did you use the counter-intelligence capability of this country to run informants or spies into the Trump Campaign before that date?
4. Are you running spies into another Senate Campaigns? House Members’ Campaigns? Is this a practice that you have been using for years. This needs to be cleared up. The DOJ & FBI are in a very slippery slope. We need to keep these capabilities to track down terrorists. I bet you would not find one vote to keep these capabilities in place.
