An Angry Senator Grassley Lashes Out At FBI, DOJ In Fiery Senate Floor Speech
It should be pointed out that the House Intel Committee chaired by Devin Nunes (R-CA) has made much more progress with Fusion GPS, after the House found out that Fusion agreed to provide them with bank records, only to withhold 112 transactions relevant to the Russia probe. Due to this, the House is now demanding bank transfers to Fusion with other law firms in addition to the DNC's council at Perkins Coie and Hostelter. Because of Fusion's ommission of the banking transactions - effectively lying, the House committee is now arguing that the use of law firms to conceal payments to operatives is now fair game and relevant to their investigation.
While Grassley's speech focused on Democrat efforts to hamstring Senate investigations, Feinstein told CNN on Monday that Grassley had similarly refused to sign her letters requesting more information on actions taken by the Trump campaign, saying "We want him to sign on. I think there's an effort ... not to go deeply," adding "I hadn't realized it before. But I realize it now. And we're going to have to find a way to deal with it."
Grassley shot back yesterday, stating "[Democrats] complain publicly and they complain privately that I'm not doing enough to investigate obstruction. But obstruction of justice is a legal term of art. It is a conclusion not evidence. ...I do not make my conclusions first and try to shoehorn the facts to fit my conclusions.
