Sen. Chuck Grassley is the powerful chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and now he’s angry…very angry.
In a fiery speech on the Senate floor yesterday, Grassley blew his top and unloaded on the FBI and DOJ, essentially accusing both departments of obstruction of justice for their refusal to comply with committee requests for information and testimony in the investigation of possible collusion.
After laying out the long train of abuses and unexplained leaks and meetings, Grassley wondered aloud, “So, who was actually colluding with Russians?”
We now have multiple congressional committees and half a dozen high-ranking members ready to switch to guns on the FBI and DOJ.
This is about to get really interesting, folks.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Last week, the House Intelligence Committee voted to release a memo compiled by staff of that committee. If focuses on two major areas. First, the abuse of FISA authority that resulted in that law being used by the outgoing Obama administration to monitor activities of the incoming Trump administration. Second, the fairly blatant antipathy of some senior FBI officials toward the idea of a Trump presidency and how this antipathy may have impacted upon the use of the Trump dossier and other parts of the ‘collusion’ investigation. This memo is based, in part, on top secret and compartmented information. It is held in the SCIF at the House of Representatives and members, over 200 thus far, can read it but not have copies or make notes.
Now Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has joined the fray. In a blistering speech, a speech that was a veritable Festivus style airing of grievances, Grassley called out the FBI for deliberately obstructing his committee’s investigation. And more. Read the statements these are the highlights of the floor speech.
Grassley just leveled both barrels at the dossier operation: “Steele, who was working for Fusion GPS, who was working for the DNC and the Clinton campaign, was working with the Russians. So, who was actually colluding with Russians? It’s becoming more clear.”
