Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee led by Chairman Adam Schiff are changing course after reaching a deal with the Justice Department.
Previously threatening to pursue “enforcement action” against Attorney General William Barr, the committee has wisely chosen to reverse course after being granted access to 12 categories of counterintelligence and foreign intelligence materials.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd offered to assist in expediting the committee’s request for the information, so long as the committee agreed not to take punitive action against Barr.
It looks like the committee has decided to take advantage of the offer. Hopefully this cooperation can set an example for future collaboration on more pressing issues.
