DOJ, FBI show House investigators documents on anti-Trump ‘dossier’

The Justice Division and FBI showed classified paperwork related to the controversial anti-Trump file to congressional investigators behind closed doors Wednesday, Fox News has learned.

Researchers from the House Intelligence Committee are trying to find to learn how much, if at all, federal police force officers have relied on the file since it was compiled by the research company Fusion GPS, with funding through the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Nationwide Committee, in mid-2016.

The documents examined Tuesday were presented for examination pursuant to a subpoena issued by committee’s chairman, U. S. Representative. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

Republican staffers state they were not allowed to make copies from the documents they saw, but had been only permitted to review them on-site and take notes. Other authorities told Fox that Nunes rebuffed the Justice Department’s offer to create the documents to the Capitol, stating he only wanted his staffers to view the documents and not get copies away.

Capitol Hill sources informed Fox News that U. S i9000. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the particular committee’s ranking member, attended the particular session at the Justice Department — as did two staffers intended for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Two Republican committee staffers and two Democratic committee staffers also attended.  

Republicans on the Home Intelligence Committee consider the attendance associated with Schiff and Pelosi’s staffers to become a notable change of tune for your Democrats, who have long insisted there was clearly no need to investigate the dossier.

Neither Pelosi’s office nor Schiff’s office instantly responded to requests for comment.

The resources also said the session increased contentious after the Democrats slowed down the procedure with numerous questions. However , additional officials said the meeting increased contentious only after Schiff grew to become upset that House Speaker John Ryan, R-Wis., had been notified in regards to the session before Schiff. Ryan failed to attend, nor did he deliver any members of his personnel.
