DOJ and FBI still hiding documents

Fox NewsNewly available records do not fully comply with congressional House subpoenas, and barring new developments Friday, recent documents from the FBI and Justice Department do not meet deadlines set by a House resolution, according to a source close to the discussions.

The source said House staffers -- who reviewed records Thursday at the Justice Department (DOJ) because lawmakers were out of town for the holiday recess -- concluded that Justice and the FBI have still not provided information and records about FBI activities before the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections officially opened on July 31 of that year.

An Intelligence Committee spokesperson told Fox News, “The DOJ gave the committee some, but not all, of the outstanding documents, so they are not in compliance.”

Given the bombshell revelations in the last batch, which still have not gotten nearly enough attention, it's obvious the FBI is just hiding shit and hoping they can keep the really bad stuff out of the news until after the election, when Democrats might take control of the House and make it all go away.
