Rep. Steube: Americans Have Right to Know DOJ Information

By    |   Friday, 24 May 2019 03:04 PM

The American people have every right to know if there was "political misrepresentation" occurring in the Department of Justice in the days leading to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, Rep. Greg Steube said Friday in response to President Donald Trump's order to declassify information about the probe.

"I hope we find out soon," the Florida Republican told Fox News' "Outnumbered Overtime." "If there's documents that evidence that there were political motivations going on at the DOJ, and they were legitimately spying on the Trump campaign for political purposes and not for legitimate legal purposes, that's going to completely change what the Democrats are talking about right now."

Steube also said that he would think Americans would have "grave concerns" of an entity like the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court working in secret, as was the case when the DOJ obtained a warrant to surveil former Trump aide Carter Page.

"Given all the information and facts, if the information that was represented to the FISA court, if they knew this was campaign fodder or promulgated and still decided to issue a warrant, that would bring a lot of things to question," said Steube, a member of both the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. "Those are questions that I would have."

Meanwhile, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler has said Mueller would like to testify privately before the committee, and Steube said that's because Democrats have changed their tone.

Further, Steube said he'd like to see Mueller testify publicly because he encourages the public to watch all such hearings.
