DOJ inspector general launches probe into secret seizure of top Democrats’ phone records

Adam Goldman:

Yes, there are.

In fact, there are there are many. And they’re sprinkled all up and down the Justice Department, in particular the National Security Division and the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, D.C. I can’t tell you how many because we’re not exactly clear when this case was opened specifically, and how it came in. Was it a referral from the intelligence community? This would have happened under Jeff Sessions, right, the investigation into members of Congress or their staffers.

But he was recused. So, ultimately, it would have fallen on the shoulders of Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, who would have approved any subpoenas, right? And this case languishes. They can’t make any headway. They basically run it to ground.

And then Attorney General Barr steps in, in 2020 and takes a trusted proxy from New Jersey and asks him to review a handful of cases, including this one involving Congressman Schiff. And they — like their predecessors who had reviewed it, they can’t make a case. There’s no one — there’s no one to charge.
