No Democrats at WH meeting between DOJ/FBI and Congressional leaders
There will be a meeting at the White House on Thursday between FBI Director Wray, Attorney General Rosenstein, House Oversight Committee's Gowdy and House Intelligence Committee's Nunes. No one from the White House will be at the meeting and no Democrats will be there either.
“To my knowledge the Democrats have not requested that information so I would refer you back to them as to why they would consider themselves randomly invited to see something they’ve never asked to,” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.
What will happen at this meeting? Will the meeting be yet another discussion about the documents that Congress has legally demanded and the DOJ has ignored? Or will the requested documents be produced as required by law?
Let me tell you right now that I doubt they will be turning over those documents.
The documents in question have to do with the origination of the investigation into Trump. When did it start? The story keeps changing. Early spring? July? What evidence was presented to the FISA court FOUR TIMES to continue surveillance on the campaign, even after Trump was elected and serving as president? It's obvious the DOJ and the FBI don't want you or me to know. Why?

Oh look, Democrats have lost their edge in the congressional ballot and the GOP is now leading
If your party platform is centered around maniacal hatred of President Trump, defending hyper-violent MS-13 gang members, advocating the release of violent illegal immigrants into communities and your media cheerleaders/spokesmen are using the "news" to gossip about some porn star and to share political fantasies about RUSSIA collusion, you are going to lose the voters. Full stop.
Only a tiny minority care about the porn star and only a tiny minority can even follow the media's repeated narrative shifting on the RUSSIA-collusion mythology served up on nightly news shows. Overall voters like stability in their government, no matter who is in charge and this constant desperate attempt to undo the 2016 presidential election by any means necessary and shrieking about CONSTITUTIONAL CRISES and IMPEACHMENT does not play well. It makes voters nervous.
