Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray have blinked first, giving House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) a much-needed victory against the Deep State.
On April 11, Rosenstein and Wray bowed to impending legal action from the House and allowed Nunes and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) access to the FBI memo used to launch the Bureau’s investigation of the Trump campaign.
An FBI official stated, “With this production, in conjunction with the 1,000 pages of classified materials—much of which is now being provided to entire [House Intelligence] committee membership—we believe we have substantially satisfied Chairman Nunes August subpoena in an appropriate fashion. The Department will be pleased to continue to work with the Committee on other, related requests for information.”

The news came just one day after Nunes threatened to slap the two men with contempt and possible impeachment.
Nunes made it clear that the access to the memo has not cleared the table of repercussions from DOJ/FBI obstruction.
“Although the subpoenas issued by this Committee in August 2017 remain in effect, I’d like to thank Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for his cooperation today,” Nunes stated. The California Republican added that “we’re not going to just hold in contempt. We will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach … we’re not messing around here.”

According to Fox News “Nunes, Gowdy and committee Republican staff were able to view the two-page memo with relatively few redactions. The source described those redactions as ‘minimal and justified.’”
It is believed that FBI agent Peter Strzok either authored or heavily influenced the writing of the memo.
What do you think? Will this access help unravel the soft coup?
