(National Sentinel) Disclosure: House Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes said Sunday he is likely to release the panel’s documents regarding its probe of all things POTUS Donald Trump and Russia before the midterm elections.
That would include transcripts of witness testimony and other documents and materials, the California Republican told Fox Business‘ Maria Bartiromo on “Fox Sunday Futures.”
“We believe that the depositions that we took, I think nearly about 70 people, those need to be published, and they need to be published I think before the election,” he said.
“By published, I mean put out for the American people to review so that they can see the work that we did and they can see all of the people that were interviewed by us and their answers to those questions.”
He added, “I think full transparency is in order here. I expect to make those available from our committee to the American public in the next few weeks.”
Nunes, like tens of millions of Americans, is fed up with the nonsensical and untrue allegations of “Russian collusion” between Moscow and the 2016 Trump campaign. He sees the false narrative as purposefully distracting to the president and for the country.
But he also understands there are far too many Americans who actually believe the lie, and that’s worse.
“It’s in the best interest of our intelligence agencies to have full transparency on this because you’re really dealing with many Americans who are living in an alternative universe, who have drank this Russia Kool-Aid,” he contined.
“There’s a large number of Americans, Maria I know it’s probably not the people watching your show right now, but you would be shocked at the number of Americans who have drank the Russia Kool-Aid and they actually believe that Donald Trump is under control of Vladimir Putin.”
