Issa says DOJ lying through their teeth

LifezetteDepartment of Justice officials are “lying through their teeth” while “slow-walking” congressional document requests until after the 2018 midterm elections “in the hopes that the Democrats will wake over the House or the Senate,” Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) claimed Sunday on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Issa, former chairman and still a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, rebuked DOJ and FBI officials for refusing to cooperate fully and in a timely manner with lawmakers’ repeated requests and subpoenas for documents.

“The reality is [that lawmakers] are being slow-walked until after the election in the hopes that the Democrats will take over the House or the Senate, and then the investigations will be covered up,” Issa warned. “No question in my mind that this would be something that would just go away if we lose the gavel.”

Wait, wait, don't Republicans control the Senate? Can't they continue the investigations? Oh, right, only with McCain's vote.
