Senate Wants to Hear from the FBI About Russiagate

(NewsReady.com) – The Senate Homeland Security Committee is pushing hard to find out exactly how the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged links to Russia got started. It filed a request to release all documents related to the probe.

The so-called “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation began in the last six months of the Obama administration and was used to attack President Trump’s reputation during the election campaign and into his first term in office. Details about this are sparse, however.

To remedy this lack of knowledge, the committee chairman, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), has now been given the authority to issue subpoenas and force government agencies to hand over all their records connected with the investigation.

Sen. Johnson has now subpoenaed the FBI in general, and Director Christopher Wray specifically, for “all records related to the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.” The subpoena makes it clear this includes any records the FBI shared with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the General Services Administration. Further subpoenas have been sent to the State Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

It’s taken a while for Johnson to get all the tools he needs to carry out his inquiry, but it looks like he’s determined to find out how and why the attacks on President Trump’s reputation got started.
