House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said on “Fox News Sunday” that the speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan led a meeting on Friday evening with senior members of the DOJ and FBI, and made it clear that “measures, the request on the floor of the house this week, when the FBI and DOJ do not comply with our subpoena.”

The House Judiciary Committee more than a million documents from the FBI and DOJ in relation to the Hillary Clinton email probe, the dismissal of the former top FBI official Andrew McCabe has requested, and reported the monitoring of a trump aide during the 2016 presidential elections.

“Under the heading of small miracles, it was the members of the house to work on a Friday night,” Gowdy said. “Paul Ryan led this meeting. You had [House Intelligence Committee Chair] Devin Nunes, [House Judiciary Committee Chair], Bob Goodlatte, me and everyone you think may be from the FBI and the DOJ, and we went point for point to these two outstanding subpoenas.


And Paul made it very clear; it’s not about the action on the floor of the house this week, when the FBI and DOJ comply with our subpoena request,” he continued. “So is [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein, [FBI Director] Chris Wray, you were in the meeting, you understood him just not as clearly as I did. We’re going to get compliance or the house of representatives is to win with his full arsenal of constitutional weapons of compliance.”

Last week, E-Mails post by Fox News showed that Rosenstein even threatened a “subpoena” E-Mails, phone records and other documents of legislators and staff to a Republican-led house Committee during a tense meeting earlier this year, in what aides described as a “personal attack.”

Gowdy said on “Fox News Sunday” that “the full spectrum of the constitutional weapons available to the people’s house” on the table, also the contempt of the Congress.

“I don’t want the drama, I want to be added to the documents,” Gowdy.

In a statement last week, Gowdy said he was “dismayed, angered and deeply disappointed” at the revelations in the DOJ IG report, released Thursday, analyzes Federal investigators, the behavior during the Hillary Clinton email probe.

The watchdog report unearthed new texts from high level FBI officials who investigated both the Clinton and the trump campaign, including one in which the No. 2 investigators on the Clinton probe, Peter Strzok, vowed to stop Trump from becoming President.

Gowdy reiterated on “Fox News Sunday” that the IG was report deep.

“I don’t know what [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller,” he said. “This I know: this trend is so ubiquitous, and everyone who once stood in front of a jury and had to explain that in a way will tell you it is the most miserable feeling in the world, and I’ve never seen, to leave this plane.”
