Either he's figured out that the House is on solid legal ground and isn't backing down, or this is another stall tactic. We shall see.

I saw that. Is this part of what has been deemed "illegal" to hand over to the Dems?

No, it's a Counter-Intelligence under Schiff's Committee

Quote:
Congress does not know what happened to the counterintelligence investigation into President Trump, which began in July 2016 examining his campaign's ties to Russia.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., says his panel has not been briefed on the counterintelligence operation in nearly two years and is taking action to find out the probe's status.
Quote:
The counterintelligence investigation, code-named Crossfire Hurricane, was prompted by Australian diplomat Alexander Downer informing the FBI that Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos told him Russia had damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival in the 2016 election. That counterintelligence investigation is believed to have been wrapped into Mueller's effort, which was unable to find sufficient evidence to issue charges of criminal conspiracy between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Pointing to a specific page in Mueller's report [Volume One, p. 13], Schiff said the "heart of why" he wants a briefings and the counterintelligence materials is to determine the distinctions between what was under the scope of Mueller's investigation and went beyond it..

DOJ offers to provide House Intel with Mueller materials after Barr contempt threat
Quote:
Earlier this month, the committee issued a bipartisan subpoena for "all counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials in the probe, the full report, and underlying evidence. The materials Mueller gathered during his probe: “all materials, regardless of form and classification, obtained or produced by the Special Counsel’s Office in the course of the investigation, including but not limited to any addenda or annexes to the full report, or separate intelligence or counterintelligence-related reports; scope-related materials regarding the investigation’s parameters, areas of inquiry, and subjects; investigative records and materials,” as well as raw reporting and finished analysis related to his work.

Try it again with facts - that statement is factually incorrect.

This all goes hand in hand with the leftist ideology of punishing those who have done nothing wrong.

Did you run out of my money yet? Socialist, commie dirt bags !

Looks like Schiff wasn't playing with Barr.

Justice Department and House intelligence panel strike deal for Mueller materials
Quote:
The House Intelligence Committee will not enforce a subpoena against Attorney General William P. Barr as planned Wednesday, after the Justice Department agreed at the 11th hour to produce the redacted material and underlying information from the special counsel’s report that the panel sought, albeit more slowly than it wanted.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), the committee’s chairman, announced the deal in a statement Wednesday morning. He warned that the subpoena “will remain in effect and will be enforced should the Department fail to comply with the full document request.”

Schiff added that he expects the “initial production” of providing the committee with 12 categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence material from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of election interference by Russia would “be completed by the end of next week.”

You mean the president with his unhinged tweets this morning? Looks like the old man rolled out of bed the wrong way and his low approval ratings are on his mind.
