"We have to move quickly", Nune insisted, "to hold the Attorney General of the United States in contempt and that's what I want to press for this week".

Nunes' committee has been looking into allegations of FISA surveillance abuses by the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation that led to spying on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

Multiple congressional committees are investigating the highly politicized inquiries by the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and allegations of collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign's and Russian interests. He warned Sessions that ignoring deadlines requested by Congress will result in contempt. Nunes also referred to comments lambasting Special Counsel Robert Mueller by U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III, who said in a Virginia Federal Court Friday, "we don't want anyone in this country with unfettered power".

Nunes was denied access to classified information from the Justice Department that he says is 'very important'.

On Fox and Friends, Nunes said that it's possible that Sessions was unaware of the subpoena request, although it's likely that Sessions knows about the situation now. "Like I said, everything we have tried to get they tried to stop us from getting", Nunes told the news program.

He's a member of the House Judiciary Committee.

Previously, Lois Lerner, former top Internal Revenue Service officer and former Attorney General Eric Holder have been held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify or for refusing to release documents.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions attends a law enforcement roundtable on "sanctuary" cities held by President Donald Trump, in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, on March 20, 2018.

As Fox News has reported, Nunes called the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department redaction of his committee's Russian Federation report "excessive and sloppy". "We've asked for very important information, it's still classified".

"Disclosure of responsive information to such requests can risk severe consequences, including potential loss of human lives, damage to relationships with valued worldwide partners, compromise of ongoing criminal investigations, and interference with intelligence activities", wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, who heads the Justice Department's Office of Legislative Affairs.

The Washington Examiner obtained a copy of the letter from the DOJ, which noted the decision not to provide the requested information came after consulting with the White House.
