Goodlatte said he was following up on requests from his committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform panel, which requested the documents as part of a joint investigation into allegations of liberal bias within the DOJ and FBI that impacted their internal investigation into Clinton’s activities. Goodlatte said made the initial request for the documents four months ago, then again in February.
“Given the ongoing delays in producing these documents, I am left with no choice but to issue the enclosed subpoena to compel production of these documents,” Goodlatte wrote to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Goodlatte also referenced Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ firing last Friday of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility’s (OPR) recommendation that McCabe be dismissed for unauthorized leaks and demonstrating a “lack of candor” in conversations with investigators about the disclosures to the media.
