House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes suggested Wednesday that Democrats are not serious about the ongoing investigation into Russia’s involvement in the election. Politico reports Nunes told NBC News, “We’re beginning to figure out who’s actually serious about the investigation because it appears like the Democrats aren’t really serious about this investigation.”
Fox News had a brief interview with Nunes outside his Capitol Hill office. “As far as I know they’ve done very little to even look through the documents that the intelligence agencies have provided,” Nunes said. He added, “At the end of the day here, we’re going to get to the truth and we’re going to find out who’s actually doing a real investigation. And you’ll find out that we are very much doing an investigation and have been for a long time.”
Asked about conflict with the House Intelligence Committee’s ranking member Adam Schiff, Nunes said, “We’re always concerned about this and we always want to keep the committee bipartisan but at the end of the day we’re going to do an investigation with or without them.” He continued, “If they want to participate that’s fine, but the facts of the matter are pretty clear that they have no…we don’t even know who their witnesses [are] that they want to call.” Nunes concluded saying to the Fox News reporter, “I would encourage you guys to go and start to follow them around and figure out who they want to bring in and interview.”
Yesterday a Democratic member of the Intelligence Committee accused Nunes of being part of a White House-orchestrated cover-up.
There is NO story.
The Dems just want to keep the innuendo around the non-story alive as long as possible.
Today I heard a Dem go ballistic over the fact that Dr. Ben Carson made a below asking price offer on a home that had been on the market for 5 months & the seller accepted his offer.
Did you know that every time I, or anyone else, pointed out how sick Hillary looked and acted during the campaign it was really Russian trolls?
Dems want you to believe that.
They want “scandals” to last for years even when there’s no “there,” there.
@Nanny G: Oh Nancy there is, lets investigate both candidates and their ties to Russia, did Trumps charity get 10s of millions from the Ruskis, Did Trumps spouse get 3x speakers fees for speeches to the Red menace? Did Hillarys intelligence briefings include any information on the opposing candidate? As per MSLSD one of the advisors in her campaign was telling all her old buds spying on Trump to spread whatever might be twisted into something damaging everywhere and gather all they could. Yes a former Obama appointee was ordering intelligence gathering on the opposing candidate, was she doing this at the orders of the Democrat nominee? This Evelyn Farkas needs to be questioned by the FBI.
