Devin Nunes warns: ‘Hell to pay’ if DOJ does not turn over documents — Video

While appearing on Sunday’s edition of Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Maria Bartiromo that the Department of Justice leadership has until Monday to turn over documents that have been subpoenaed.

As the New York Post explained, the documents he requested are related to ​the federal warrant against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, which helped spark Mueller’s probe into Russian campaign collusion with the Trump campaign.

If the agency refuses to hand over the documents by Wednesday, he added, there’ll be “hell to pay.”

“The deadline is this week,” he said.  “If documents do not begin to be turned over tomorrow and a clear way and path forward for everything else is not clear here in the next couple days, there’s going to be hell to pay by Wednesday morning because we can no longer — it’s not just about the committee chairman any longer. This is about rank and file members of Congress who continue to come up to me and say ‘what are you guys doing?’”

“I have many members of the Intelligence Committee that are Republicans that are trying to get to the bottom of these issues,” he added. “They’re relying on me to get the documents so they can complete the investigation that we began. So we are quickly — this is going to go from just myself and a few committee chairmen to all the members of the House of Representatives who will begin to take action against the Department of Justice and FBI.”

Bartiromo asked if action could include contempt of Congress.

“Well that’s just one of many options, but I can tell you that it’s not going to be pretty,” he said.

He also told Bartiromo that he’s ready to move for the impeachment of DOJ and FBI leadership: “Absolutely, yep. I’ve been there for a while now.”
