House Intelligence Committee issues subpoenas to Justice Department over Trump dossier

House Intelligence Committee issues subpoenas to Justice Department over Trump dossier”

Former FBI Director James Comey considered the dossier so important that he insisted it be included in January's final Intelligence Community Report on Russian meddling in the election and reportedly offered Steele $50,000 to corroborate the dossier--something the bureau denies paying. In the letter, he threatened to drag Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray before the committee for a public grilling and hold them in contempt of Congress - a jailable offense - if they don't hand over the documents.

The House Intelligence Committee has reportedly subpoenaed the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice over the infamous so-called "dossier" about President Donald Trump. On September 5, the committee issued subpoenas for information about an unverified dossier, according to Gowdy. The new subpoenas call on the officials to appear before the committee and explain why they did not comply with the previous requests, the report said. But he capped it off with a sharp threat.

US Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of SC, waits for former CIA Director John Brennan to testify during a House Intelligence Committee hearing about Russian actions during the 2016 election on Capitol Hill, May 23, 2017.

"We've got to run this thing to ground", said Republican Rep. Michael Conaway, who is heading the House Russia investigation.

The subpoenas were first reported by the Washington Examiner.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said the pair of subpoenas were issued over his objections last month and are created to "undermine" the claims about the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Representative Adam Schiff told MSNBC in an interview that he and other Democrats on the committee objected to the subpoenas, which he said Republicans issued in an attempt to discredit its author, former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

The subpoenas had initially set a deadline of September 1 for the documents, but they were extended to September 14 after both agencies missed the deadline. It contains allegations - some since verified - about Trump's associates, finances and personal life.
