Obstruction of justice by FBI?: FBI won’t provide Comey memos to Congress yet

The FBI isn't offering up the infamous Comey memo because it either doesn't exist or they're trying to keep Comey from being charged with a crime for failing to report to the DOJ what the memo claims.  
Politico reports the FBI on Thursday declined a congressional request for explosive memos by former Director James Comey detailing his interactions with President Donald Trump.

The House Oversight Committee and other congressional panels requested the memos earlier this month after The New York Times reported that Comey wrote in one that Trump had asked him to shut down the FBI’s investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Trump denied the allegation.

n a letter to Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), the FBI’s assistant director for congressional affairs, Gregory Brower, said the bureau can’t provide the memo until it consults with Robert Mueller, the new special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s election meddling.

  1. The FBI can't figure out how to put a fake date on a memo? I'm seriously concerned about the competence of our intelligence agencies.
