BREAKING: House passes resolution demanding DOJ turn over documents!

Well Jim Jordan was right. The House easily passed a resolution demanding that the DOJ turn over all the documents the House has requested:

THE HILL – The House on Thursday passed a resolution demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) hand over sensitive documents, in the process delivering a final warning shot to senior officials before conservatives move ahead with more aggressive action against the department.

In a 226-183 vote, lawmakers approved the messaging measure, which calls on the DOJ to turn over all of the documents House Republicans have requested related to the FBI’s handling of investigations during the 2016 presidential election.

The party-line vote, with one Republican voting present, puts the entire conference on the record in the escalating feud between the DOJ and House Republicans, who have been fighting for months for access to a trove of highly-sensitive documents.

While the resolution is not enforceable, Republicans say they wanted to send a clear message to the DOJ and are vowing to impeach or hold senior officials in contempt of Congress if they don’t comply with their document request.



The House can’t agree on a full repeal of Obamacare or how to strongly deal with our immigration problems. But they can find it within themselves to pass a resolution demanding that the DOJ stop withholding documents from them.

And this bodes well for the case Jim Jordan was just trying to make with Rosenstein in their fiery exchange.
