Since President Trump was elected, the investigations have only been about him.
And they’ve produced NOTHING because he’s clean!
So now it’s time to turn the tables, and it looks like Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) are doing just that!
They’ve sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security requested a multitude of documents.
Here’s the letter:
More details, from the Gateway Pundit:
Congressmen Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent a letter to the head of the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday requesting a bunch of Obama-era documents related to “attempted interference” in the 2016 election.
Meadows and Jordan, both members of the Freedom Caucus and House Oversight Committee wrote in the letter, “During the 2016 election cycle, then-DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson briefed Members of Congress about attempted Russian interference. During the briefing – which also included President Obama’s National Security Advisor Lisa Monaco and then-FBI Director James Comey – the Obama Administration assured Members that it was adequately addressing any attempted interference in the election.”
Documents requested from Meadows and Jordan:
- All documents and communications created, prepared, or used for the purpose of briefing members of Congress about the threat of foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election;
- All documents created, prepared, or used for the purpose of briefing campaign officials about the threat of foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election;
- All documents and communications between or among Secretary Johnson or any other DHS employee, Director Comey or any other FBI employee, or Lisa Monaco or any other National Security Council employee referring to relating to briefing members of Congress about the Russian Government’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election; and
- All documents and communications produced to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs responsive to Chairman Johnson’s request of June 6, 2018.
What we do know is that Obama’s DHS tried to hack into Georgia’s election database.
In December of 2016, Georgia accused the DHS of attempting to penetrate the state’s firewall without authorization.
“Last month, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp wrote a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, in which he identified an ‘unsuccessful attempt to penetrate the Georgia Secretary of State’s firewall’ originating from a DHS-registered IP address,” a January 2017 letter written by then-Congressman Chaffetz said.
The documents requested by Meadows and Jordan may give us an idea what evidence the Obama Administration had regarding so-called ‘Russian interference’ in the 2016 election. Also, what were officials communicating to each other?
Confirmed by the IJR:
Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) want more information about what the Obama administration knew regarding Russian interference in the 2016 elections.
The coverage of Russian meddling in the 2016 election has been steady since President Donald Trump took office, with much of the focus being on alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, which prompted an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.
However, there is not much public information about the response from former President Barack Obama while this alleged collusion was supposedly happening. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a report showing that Russians had interfered with the 2016 election and even notified states following the 2016 election that they had been targeted by Russians.
Now, the Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee want to know what the Obama administration knew and when it knew it.
In a letter to current DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Jordan and Meadows pointed to a few meetings held between Congress and several members of the Obama administration. During the meeting, the Obama administration “assured members that it was adequately addressing any attempted interference in the election.”
Obama’s team also was asked to brief members of the campaign staffs for both Trump and Hillary Clinton about the situation.
Jordan and Meadows asked for all documents and communication from the Obama administration so they can see how the interference was being handled and to see how both campaign teams were being briefed about the situation.
According to a report by the Washington Examiner, Republicans requested this information because they believe Obama may have minimized the level of interference during the election because of fears that it would delegitimize Clinton, had she won the election. When Trump won, some Republicans believe they sounded the horn because they knew it would make voters question Trump’s election.
