An unexpected breakthrough in negotiations between the Justice Department and the House Intelligence Committee is about to offer some lawmakers an intimate look at highly sensitive intelligence files collect by special counsel Robert Mueller.
The development represents a rare example of a deal despite what Democrats otherwise describe as a sea of stonewalling by the president and his officials of their investigations.
The article goes on to state the following:
While the Justice Department has not yet met all of the panel’s demands, Chairman Adam Schiff (Calif.) and other committee Democrats say they are encouraged.
“Optimistically, there’s been a thawing,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), a member of the committee, told The Hill.
DOJ has accepted our offer, and will begin turning over to the Committee twelve categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials beginning this week.
Our subpoena will remain in effect, and be enforced should DOJ fail to comply with the full document request.
