The current Gang of 8 members want to view they documents seized by the FBI during the Mar-a-Lago raid.
The DOJ and FBI have yet to explain why it was necessary to raid Mar-a-Lago for documents a year-and-a-half after President Trump left office.
The DOJ and White House also have repeatedly lied about their involvement in the unprecedented raid on the home of their top political opponent.
The raid took place despite the fact that Trump officials were openly working with DOJ officials in their latest garbage attack on President Trump.
The Gateway Pundit has reported since the raid that the FBI was on a clean-up operation to fetch documents incriminating FBI and DOJ officials in their numerous attempts to target and eliminate President Trump.
The Gang of 8 includes Chuck Schumer, dirtbag Mitch McConnell, Sen. Marco Rubio, Nancy Pelosi, Kevin McCarthy, Sen. Mark Warner, Pencil-neck Adam Schiff and Rep. Mike Turner.
Do these people REALLY think they can trust the DOJ and FBI to tell them the truth now?
The group of congressional leaders charged with reviewing the most sensitive intelligence information has asked the Brandon administration for access to the documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s private residence in Florida, according to two people with direct knowledge of the request.
The inquiry from the so-called “Gang of 8” comes as lawmakers from both parties seek to learn more about the unprecedented investigation into the former president. And it suggests that Congress is unwilling to be a bystander in the political and legal fallout following the FBI’s Aug. 8 search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.
It follows a similar request from Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Vice Chair Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), two Gang of 8 members who asked the nation’s top intelligence official to draw up an assessment of possible national-security risks related to Trump’s handling of the sensitive documents.
The Gang of 8 includes the top two congressional leaders in each chamber — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — as well as the top Democrat and Republican on the House and Senate intelligence committees.
A spokesperson for the Senate Intelligence Committee declined to comment. A representative for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence also declined to comment. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for a Gang of 8 member indicated that a specific request hadn’t been signed onto by all eight lawmakers, but acknowledged that congressional oversight is ongoing. (The Gang of 8 and its staff routinely ask the intelligence community for specific information in ways that don’t always require sign-off from all eight members.)
