His request comes as a handful of Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee, where Wray is scheduled to testify Thursday, amped up their own calls for an investigation into the "unprecedented bias" against President Trump at the FBI.
The Iowa Republican is pressing the FBI for documents related to the activities of FBI agent Peter Strzok following reports that he demonstrated bias against President Trump while playing key roles in investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and in the special counsel probe into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation.
"We met with the department of justice ... and they have to go through the texts", Gowdy said. "Any Congressional oversight related to either one of these topics is not credible without also examining the other". He interviewed Clinton and her aides about the server, which contained classified material.
Over the weekend, Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, directed his staff to write up legislation that would hold the Federal Bureau of Investigation in contempt of Congress. Nunes cited media reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had removed Strzok from his investigative team after discovering that he and Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, his alleged mistress, had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Trump and supporting Hillary Clinton.
The dossier is a collection of negative research on Trump that alleges corrupt ties to the Russian government. Strzok sent negative text messages about Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
Simmons triple-double in loss to Lakers
A 18-7 Sixers run in the fourth cut what was once a 16-point Lakers lead down to four, 92-88, with over six minutes to play. The Lakers bounced back from a five-game losing streak with the win headed into a road game in Charlotte on Snday (AEDT).
Grassley suggested that Democrats weren't interested in delving deeper into the dossier after news reports revealed that it was funded by Clinton and the DNC.
Then there's Andrew Weissmann - another member of Mueller's investigative team who wrote an email to an Obama-era holdover in the Department of Justice, Sally Yates, expressing his delight that she defied Trump earlier this year on his proposed ban on travel from a handful of terror-prone nations. "But, I do know that unless both sides are willing to ask tough questions, no matter where the facts lead, there can be no bipartisan oversight". The goal is to issue a bipartisan report, but committees have sometimes had to issue separate findings from Republicans and Democrats. The more that presidents had secrets, the more likely they were to keep him from releasing them. "I think Mueller has fewer and fewer supporters in the Republican establishment, because of what he allowed to happen", Fitton told The WashingtonPost. "I don't want the drama of a contempt of Congress floor fight".
"We may be, when we conclude, in a situation where we don't choose to have a committee vote on anything; where our intent is to lay the facts down", Burr said Wednesday. "I have no basis for concluding that she was untruthful with us".
"We sent a letter to Attorney General Sessions, Deputy Attorney General [Rod] Rosenstein, and FBI Director [Christopher] Wray asking them to make available, make public, the application that we believe was taken to the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court to enable the spying to take place on Americans associated with the Trump campaign", he said.
