Are the Department of Justice and the FBI taking their time with the Republican requested documents on purpose?
According to Rep. Darrel Issa, the two are just buying their time, waiting for Dems to capture the majority after midterms. That sounds like a lousy idea.
As reported by washingtonexaminer.com
Rep. Darrell Issa charged the Justice Department and FBI with purposefully slow-walking their responses to document requests from Congress in the hopes that Republicans will lose their majorities after the 2018 midterms.
With the Democrats in power, the California Republican claimed the intelligence community will get their way.
"The realty is they are being slow-walked until after the election with the hopes the Democrats will take over the House or the Senate and then the investigations will be covered up," Issa said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
Issa suggested there are now thousands of documents that have yet to be produced, despite requests over the past year by committee chairmen Bob Goodlatte, Trey Gowdy, and Devin Nunes, who in their oversight roles are looking for evidence of wrongdoing by the government.
If the DOJ and the FBI are involved in massive, legal cover-up of this magnitude, that's bad news for everyone. Especially President Trump. How do you weed out so many un-trustworthy individuals holding the highest ranks in law enforcement when you don't really know which ones to trust? The only thing these institutions should be after is the truth, not a political agenda. If they are covering stuff up, that means they are hiding it. If they are hiding it, that means they knew it was wrong to begin with, and if they were doing something wrong, they were doing it with an intent and a purpose. Was that purpose to keep President Trump out of the White House? If so, at who's orders?
Perhaps this cartoon by political cartoonist Ben Garrison isn't so funny.
