Outgoing Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said Monday that the Justice Department “institutionally continues to not want to cooperate with Congress.”
Issa, who announced his retirement in January, made the remark during an interview with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner. Issa is a member of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, before which former FBI Director James Comey testified for a second time Tuesday.
Comey said after his first round of testimony before the committees on Dec. 7, referring to the special counsel’s probe: “The FBI, for understandable reasons, doesn’t want me talking about the details of the investigation that is still ongoing.”
Citing several aspects of the FBI and Comey’s involvement in the Russia probe before Comey’s dismissal by President Donald Trump last year, Issa said: “There’s certainly a reason to make the record complete.”
