Washington, DC – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.) released the following statement concerning the 384 pages of new text messages between top FBI officials:
“This weekend we met to discuss the text messages and possible next steps in our oversight of these agencies. The contents of these text messages between top FBI officials are extremely troubling in terms of when certain key decisions were made by the Department of Justice and the FBI, by whom these decisions were made, and the evident bias exhibited by those in charge of the investigation. The omission of text messages between December 2016 and May 2017, a critical gap encompassing the FBI’s Russia investigation, is equally concerning. Rather than clearing up prior FBI and DOJ actions, these recently produced documents cause us to further question the credibility and objectivity of certain officials at the FBI.”
Dear President Trump,
It is imperative that you release the Memo prepared by the House Oversight Committee concerning the corruption that has been perpetrated by Senior Officials in the FBI.
We have been awaiting the release of this memo to help us understand why Hillary Clinton was not indicted. We have been awaiting the release of this memo to help us understand why a Dossier bought and paid for by the Clintons and the Democrat Party was used by the FBI to initiate an investigation into the Trump Campaign and the Trump Presidency.
Mr. President it was revealed on the Lou Dobbs Show tonight that your Chief of Staff is allowing the FBI to examine this document. Mr. President the FBI upper management has rendered itself unworthy of examination of this document. Their actions concerning this matter have created to much mistrust among the American People. I want to see the document as the Committee released it. Please do not let the FBI drag you into a cover up. We want the truth!
