The FBI is hiding something from Congress

The key question for today is what is the FBI hiding from Congress and why will they not turn it over. The House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has threatened to get tough and play hardball with the FBI. The top two leaders of the FBI have been canned and Christopher Wray is now in charge. What are the bureaucrats at the FBI afraid of? Here is what the speculations could be.

As Written and Reported By Monica Showalter for the American Thinker:

Nunes is likely to win in the matter of wresting the pretext documents for the FBI’s 2016 Trump investigation, as he always has, and still, the FBI doesn’t want Congress to see it. Why?

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes is threatening another legal fight, this time over the Rosetta Stone of the Russia collusion investigation: the FBI document, (or E.C., for electronic communication) showing exactly what triggered it.

According to the Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray that instructed them to produce unredacted copies of the documents that the FBI used as the basis to officially open up its Russia investigation.

It’s significant because an FBI investigation of a presidential candidate that was begun right in the middle of a presidential campaign, apparently as an “insurance policy,” as the texts of FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page suggested, is unprecedented in a democratic system.  If the pretext for the probe were anything but something serious about national security, it would be an FBI abuse of power.  The FBI investigation also amounted to the building material that led to the appointment of the special counsel and that office’s investigation of Russian collusion, something that has frequently thrown the Trump administration into turmoil and has resulted in firings and indictments of Trump’s closest aides…..
