This past Wednesday, Sept. 16, Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent subpoenas to the main players of the Russia investigation that led to President Trump’s impeachment, Fox News reported.
The subpoenas include former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey and other former officials involved in the Russian investigation, including former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and Kevin Clinesmith, who so far is the only one to be prosecuted for lying under oath as a result of the Durham probe.
Despite the abundant evidence presented by Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who managed to declassify several FBI documents in cooperation with Attorney General William Barr, no concrete progress has been made in the case. The documents declassified by Graham at the end of July, in and of themselves, present sufficient evidence of the origin of the impeachment, who was involved, who paid for the investigation, and who lied to Congress during the impeachment, but it seems that the saying that justice takes time is actually true.
In an interview with Fox News on Sept. 11, Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, called for a criminal investigation of FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Mueller’s team had filed the report that was the basis for President Trump’s impeachment. Judicial Watch had discovered through litigation that some 30 cellphones belonging to Mueller’s team had been completely wiped on the day Mueller was appointed to investigate Trump, eliminating a great deal of potential evidence.
Fitton questioned, in an interview with Lou Dobbs, the corruption of the Department of Justice and the FBI because of the time it is taking to be able to concretely prosecute the perpetrators of an impeachment that should never have happened, “There needs to be a criminal investigation of the Mueller team, and the fact that evidently hasn’t been done yet, speaks volumes about the way the DOJ is being run when it comes to their own internal corruption.”
