Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence committee, has had enough with DOJ stonewalling and he’s ready to star holding folks in contempt of Congress. The Washington Post’s Robert Costa reports:

Rep. Nunes later said on Laura Ingraham’s show that impeachment proceedings against both FBI Director Christopher Wray was not out of the question:


Ingraham: What are the chances you will hold them in contempt of Congress? Right now?

Nunes: Well, I can just tell you that we’re not going to just hold in contempt, we will have a plan to hold in contempt and to impeach

Ingraham: To impeach Christopher Wray?

Nunes: Absolutely.

Ingraham: Rod Rosenstein?

Nunes: We’re not messing around here.

According to Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Maggie Haberman in today’s New York Times, this fits pretty closely into what President Trump is thinking as well:

Mr. Trump angrily told his advisers that people were trying to undermine him and that he wanted to get rid of three top Justice Department officials — Jeff Sessions, the attorney general; Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who appointed Mr. Mueller; and Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director — according to two people familiar with what took place.
