After a little weekend prompting from President Donald Trump. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray have announced some news that many patriotic Americans didn’t know they were waiting to hear. In order to speed up the fulfillment process of producing records to Congress on all sorts of open investigations, U.S. Attorney John Lausch has been assigned the task of facilitating the process.
‘By appointing Mr. Lausch to oversee this specific document production, our goal is to assure Congress, the President, and the American people that the FBI is going to produce the relevant documents and will do so completely and with integrity and professionalism,’ Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement.
And by appointing an attorney who was nominated to his post by President Trump, NOT any of his predecessors, and a gentleman who comes to Washington from Northern Illinois, there is an added assurance that political interests will not outweigh carrying out the task of helping Congress get to the bottom of the shenanigans that used to go on in the Obama Administration.
‘The Attorney General and the FBI Director understand the concerns of members of Congress and the President about the pace of production and levels of redactions in the documents already received by Congress,’ Isgur Flores also said.
‘They agree that the Department and the FBI should accommodate the Committee’s request in a timely fashion and in the fullest manner consistent with the Department’s law enforcement and national security responsibilities,’ she added.
Beyond documents from the Clinton email investigation, lawmakers want details on the FBI’s surveillance of former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, as well as documents on Sessions’ last-minute decision to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the same weekend he was supposed to retire.
The FBI has doubled the number of attorneys working on records procurement, but still, there are a lot of investigations open and to do it all right, all ts need to be crossed and all is dotted. That is what Lausch is there to do.
Stay tuned. We may see some productive fireworks in the swamp after all.
