Saga Over Russia Docs Exposes Chasm Among House Republicans

Saga Over Russia Docs Exposes Chasm Among House Republicans

By    |   Monday, 25 June 2018 03:12 PM EDT

The Department of Justice and the FBI are either making a good-faith effort to turn over documents crucial to the genesis of the Russia investigation or they're obstructionists of the deep state.

Those aren't differences of opinions between Republicans or Democrats - just House Republicans, Politico reports.

Speaker Paul Ryan and committee chairmen Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy were encouraged by the DOJ's modest document dump over the weekend, using words like reasonable and productive.

Rep. Mark Meadows, on the other hand, said Monday that the bureau and Justice were acting as a "cover-up team."

House intel chief Rep. Devin Nunes said the weekend drip was wholly inadequate and wondered if the FBI and DOJ intended to "obey the law and fully comply."

Even President Donald Trump got in on the action Monday, tweet-wondering about nefarious schemes at work by his own administration.

Nunes on Monday said it's likely that the agencies are going to miss the deadline to comply with Congress.

"The Department of Justice and FBI are on a very slippery slope because we need to keep capabilities to track down terrorists, but I will tell you, I bet you wouldn't find one vote on the Republican side today to keep these capabilities in place," Nunes said.

Except for perhaps Ryan, Gowdy and Goodlatte.
