Facing threats of impeachment and further legal action, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein handed over key material to the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday regarding FBI documents surrounding the Russia investigation.
Rep. Nunes confirmed that his Committee had finally received the information after months of heated exchanges between the House and the Department of Justice; adding he’d like to “thank Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for his cooperation.”
“Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I’d like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today,” said Nunes.
“With this production, in conjunction with the 1,000 pages of classified materials—much of which is now being provided to entire [House Intelligence] committee membership—we believe we have substantially satisfied Chairman Nunes August subpoena in an appropriate fashion,” said one DOJ official. “The Department will be pleased to continue to work with the Committee on other, related requests for information.”
