Mark Meadows says the DOJ isn’t cooperating with the House Judiciary investigation and it’s “unacceptable.”
The deadline for the subpoena issued by Chairman Goodlatte was today at noon. We got no documents from the Department of Justice. Just a phone call.— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) April 5, 2018
This is unacceptable--it's time to stop the games. Turn over the documents to Congress and allow us to conduct oversight.
More from the Hill:
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are infuriated by what they view as a stall by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in providing documents related to the panel’s investigation into the FBI’s decision-making during the 2016 presidential election, even under subpoena power.
Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who is leading a joint investigation with Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), issued a subpoena two weeks ago after conservatives on his panel grew increasingly impatient about what they claim was the DOJ dragging its feet in turning over the documents they’ve repeatedly requested.
The deadline for the subpoena was set for Thursday at noon.
Hours after the 12 p.m. deadline, multiple committee aides told The Hill that the panel had not received the documents they had requested.
Clearly the DOJ isn’t cooperating – shouldn’t they give a reason why they aren’t? And this is Trump’s DOJ, shouldn’t he be kicking someone in the pants to get this done? Drain the SWAMP!!!
