Specifically, he is asking the DOJ and FBI to comply with a subpoena for information he requested in April, regarding the use of FBI informants who approached members of the Trump campaign in 2016.
If they do not comply, next steps could include impeachment of top Justice Department officials, holding them in contempt, and passing a resolution to enforce compliance, Nunes told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Last week former Trump campaign advisers Michael Caputo and Roger Stone informed the House Intelligence Committee that they recalled meeting a man in mid- to late-May 2016 who claimed to be a U.S. citizen of Russian descent named “Henry Greenberg” who had dirt on Clinton.
Last Thursday, Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray met with and granted access to the documents to the Gang of Eight — top leaders in the House and Senate, as well as the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and their aides.
Potential consequences include holding Rosenstein and Wray in contempt of Congress, articles of impeachment, a resolution demanding enforcement of the subpoenas, calling Rosenstein and Wray before an open hearing, and enforcing the subpoenas in court.
