Nunes: If Docs are Not Turned Over By DOJ and FBI this Week “There’s Going to be Hell to Pay”

Yesterday,House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes spoke with Maria Bartiromo regarding documents owed to him from the DOJ and FBI that are now  long overdue.

These documents are likely to shed light on Obama-era FISA abuse.

MARIA BARTIROMO: And we are back once again with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.

And, Mr. Chairman, this is my question as we continue diving into this I.G. report.

You have been asking for these documents from the DOJ and the FBI now for a year. You had a major meeting on Friday and have come up with an agreement that they’re going to deliver all of the documents that are left to be delivered to you by next Friday.

If you do not get those documents this week, by your deadline of Friday, what are you going to do?

DEVIN NUNES: Well, I would say it’s more this. The deadline’s not Friday. The deadline is this week.

So, if documents do not begin to be turned over tomorrow and a clear way and path forward for everything else is not clear here in the next couple days, there’s going to be hell to pay by Wednesday morning, because we can no longer — it’s not just about the committee chairman any longer.

This is about rank-and-file members of Congress who continue to come up to me and say, what on Earth are you guys doing? I have many members of the Intelligence Committee that are Republicans that are trying to get to the bottom of these issues.

They’re relying on me to get the documents, so that they can complete the investigation that we began. So, we are quickly — this is going to go from just myself and a few committee chairmen to all the members of the House of Representatives, who are going to begin to take action against the Department of Justice and FBI.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Taking action, meaning contempt of Congress?

DEVIN NUNES: Well, that’s just one of the options. That’s just one of many options.

But I can tell you that it’s not going to be pretty.
