(National Sentinel) Fed Up: House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is sending investigators to the Department of Justice on Thursday to physically obtain outstanding documents requested by his committee involving ongoing investigation if they are not delivered sooner.
“Intel Cmte chair Nunes says Hse Intel Cmte will send investigators to DoJ Thursday to do a “scrub” of documents they have pursued since winter. Nunes says if McCabe doesn’t appear next Tuesd, he will move to subpoena him..or potentially hold McCabe in contempt of Congress,” tweeted Fox News’ Chad Pergram.
This comes on the heels of Nunes’ claims over the weekend that his investigators have found evidence of abuse in U.S. government surveillance.
“I believe there’s evidence that abuses have occurred,” Nunes told Fox News‘ Catherine Herridge in his first interview since the House Ethics Committee dismissed allegations he had wrongly released classified information as part of the panel’s Russia investigation.
“We have had an ongoing investigation into DOJ [Department of Justice] and FBI since mid-summer for both FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court] abuse and other matters that we can’t get into too much. But it is very concerning,” he said.
Nunes pointed to the leaked conversation between former national security advisor to President Donald J. Trump, Michael Flynn with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. as one example.
“I hate to use the word corrupt, but they become so dirty that, who is watching the watchmen? Who is investigating these people? There is no one,” he added.
In an interview with the network’s Laura Ingraham, Nunes said the government was “out of control.”
“Who’s lying at the FBI?” she asked.
“We don’t really know. Is it just Comey or is it the whole FBI?” he responded, which took Ingraham by surprise.
“That’s quite a change,” she said.
“Absolutely. This is the government out of control,” admitted Nunes.
