DOJ misses subpoena deadline

Washington ExaminerThe Justice Department missed a deadline to submit documents ordered in a subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee, aggravating Republicans who were eager to see documents on a variety of issues, including the agency’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., sent the subpoena to the DOJ two weeks ago, after the agency failed to respond to a request for the documents from Goodlatte and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., that was issued four months prior.

AG Sessions appointed an outside-of-DC attorney to oversee the process. Whether that helps or hurts remains to be seen.

I'm of two minds: I think all this should be released as soon as possible, but I don't want that to interfere with the process of investigating and bringing criminal charges against the people who did it.

Frankly, I'm afraid we're not going to get either, despite Huber.
