House Judiciary Republicans Aren't Happy With The DOJ And FBI

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are clearly unhappy with the Department of Justice.

A hearing Thursday was called to discuss the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and the inspector general report about that probe. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christoper Wray answered lawmakers' questions. 

"In a few minutes, the House of Representatives is going to go on record saying you haven't complied with requests from a separate and equal branch of government, that you haven't complied with subpoenas, and you've got seven days to get your act together," Rep. Jim Jordan said at one point.

At another, Rep. Trey Gowdy said: "You have a counterintelligence investigation that's become public. You have a criminal investigation that's become political. You have more bias than I have ever seen manifest out of a law enforcement officer in the 20 years I used to do it for a living."

A few representatives took issue with previous committee requests that they say have been unfulfilled. Others critiqued the surveillance warrant application process. And some brought up concerns about the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling.

"Whatever you got, finish it the hell up because this country is being torn apart," Gowdy said. 

Wray and Rosenstein defended themselves and their agencies, but both men have said concerns highlighted in the inspector general's report will be addressed
