Shortly after House Speaker Paul Ryan finished extolling his triumph over a group of 20 intransigent blue-state Republicans who opposed a budget bill passed by the House on Thursday, the Republican leader dropped a surprising revelation about the House Intelligence Committee’s push to subpoena the FBI for records pertaining to the infamous ‘Trump dossier.’
As the public’s perception of the dossier’s credibility has deteriorated further following this week’s revelation that it was financed by the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, the FBI is finally acquiescing to the House Intel committee’s monthslong campaign to obtain the records. The agency said it will provide the documents to Nunes & Co. by next week, Ryan said.
After Ryan accused the agency of ‘stonewalling’ and ‘foot-dragging’ during an interview published on Wednesday, the FBI contacted his office and promised the requested materials would be readily provided, Politico noted.
