Department of Justice, Bjoertvedt, CC BY-SA 3.0

Three officials wrote a letter to the committee saying its refusal to cooperate would complicate its ability to investigate rioters, claiming the transcripts are “critical” to its work.

The DOJ previously asked the committee to share transcripts of its witness depositions, but the panel rejected the department’s request as it did not want to share “its product” prematurely.


Almost exactly one month later, the DOJ is again attempting to compel the House committee to share its work.

“It is now readily apparent that the interviews the Select Committee conducted are not just potentially relevant to our overall criminal investigations, but are likely relevant to specific prosecutions that have already commenced,” read its latest letter to the panel.

“Given this overlap, it is critical that the Select Committee provide us with copies of the transcripts of all its witness interviews.”

The letter was signed by Matthew Graves, U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C., Kenneth Polite, assistant attorney general of the DOJ’s Criminal Division, and Matthew Olsen, assistant attorney general for department’s National Security Division, according to NBC News.

The DOJ is asking for all transcripts as its grand jury investigations are not public, so the committee “does not and will not know the identity of all the witnesses who have information relevant to the Department’s ongoing criminal investigations.”

The committee has not issued any comment at this time.

It sounds like they’ve got nothing. Just another Schiff show. I thought that the FBI already investigated. This kangaroo court Congressional committe is better at investigating than the FBI?! Maybe it’s time to disband all of these government agencies. They’ve proved themselves to be both useless and untrustworthy

How could they, when everything they are supposedly “investigating” is a fraud. Besides, why are they not calling on FBI and Capitol Police who were in the crowd and pushing people forward? It was a set up from the start, because they do not want President Trump to run again — which he can and should do.

“Because they do not want PRESIDENT TRUMP to ever .. be eligible to run again.”
That is and has been from the very GitGo, the whole purpose for this partisan and illegal Schiff Show.

There is absolutely NOTHING legitimate and constitutionally legal about this whole Kangaroo Court show.

Actually, the only thing which upsets me about this charade, are all the Political Prisoners who are detained and being strong armed into confessions of made-up guilt. Otherwise, while the “Dummie Crats” are engaged in this farse, most, if not all of their over-the-moon, Utopian agenda items are not being accomplished.

This friends, proves our point. The Dumbocrats are not interested in governing to benefit America. They are in the game to attain and retain power into infinity.
