(VIDEO) NUNES: DOJ "PART OF CLEAN-UP OR COVER-UP CREW"?

ObamaGate (renamed SpyGate) started with illicit spying under false pretense of "Trump collusion with Russia". Members of the Trump campaign were set up and then surveiled; the information was then leaked to the media. The House Judicial Committee is conducting broad investigation into the abuse of power within the DoJ and FBI. (Senate probe). Chairman Nunes has demanded documentation from the DoJ, which they refused to hand over so far.

UPDATE: This week is make or break for the Dept. of Justice. Nunes said this morning that Rosenstein and Wray have to decide this week, if they are part of the cover-up crew or part of the clean-up crew. Since the IG Report was released last Thursday some witnesses changed their testimony. It has now become clear that the FBI was running spies in the Trump campaign from May 2016,  well before the start of the official counter-intelligence investigation. The window for the DoJ to comply with Congress is from tomorrow to Wednesday in order to thwart impeachment of Rosenstein and possibly FBI Director Wray as well.

(VIDEO) FREEDOM CAUCUS RESOLUTION FOR 2ND SPECIAL COUNSEL


A group of congressional Republicans plans to introduce a resolution today calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate alleged misconduct at the FBI and Justice Department. The resolution is backed by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus as well as two of the group's co-founders -- Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla. Fox News has learned the 12-page resolution will ask a second special counsel to probe matters related to three topics: The ending of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's personal email server, the progress of the Trump-Russia investigation from its origins through the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, and abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the warrant application process.

THE "MOTHER OF ALL LEAKS"


Last week, smelling a rat, Nunes cancelled Friday's meeting with the DoJ.

He said on Sunday he will not meet with officials from the Justice Department (DOJ) until he receives documents connected to an FBI source who met with Trump campaign aides in 2016 over alleged contacts between members of the campaign and Russia.
