House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Thursday that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has missed a deadline to comply with a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report and counterintelligence files related to the investigation.
Schiff told reporters that the committee has “reluctantly scheduled” a business meeting next week to take an “enforcement action” to compel the Justice Department to turn over the files –– but he offered no details on what that action would be.
The article goes on to state the following:
He said the committee maintains “some small but vanishing hope” that the department will comply with its oversight requests, though he expressed fear that President Trump has given “a top down instruction” for his administration to “stonewall every congressional request, no matter how reasonable.”
“We gave them a reasonable period of time to produce them and ask them to do so as a demonstration of good faith, and an initial part of what would be a rolling production of documents, the long and the short of it is the deadline came and went without the production of a single document, raising profound questions about whether the department has any intention to honor its legal obligations,” Schiff said.
“So we are reluctantly scheduling a committee business meeting for next week, where we plan to take up an enforcement action,” Schiff said.
Schiff also says committee will vote on Monday to release Michael Cohen transcripts.
