Top ranking Republican Congressman on the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes confirmed the Democrats’ worst fears, warning of incoming subpoenas for all of the “dirty cops,” if Republicans happen to take back the House in November.
During an appearance on Fox News, Devin Nunes made the remarks, specifically calling out the Justice Department and FBI officials who were involved in the counterintelligence investigation against President Trump.
“You can be sure of this, if we take the House in November, we have subpoenas ready to go that will continue going after these dirty cops,” he said.
Devin Nunes was credited with revealing the FBI’s abuse in the FISA process in his report released February 2018, which led to the Inspector General finding “17 significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the process by which warrants were obtained to spy on Donald Trump.
The fight for reform in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act after the FBI’s alleged abuse against Donald Trump in the process continues to this day.
Republicans and Democrats were expected to pass legislation on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act last week, but House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler canceled the key hearing. Republicans believe this was done in order to delay a vote for bipartisan amendments aimed at limiting the government’s surveillance powers in the act.
“What they’re trying to do is a cover-up – they’re trying to cover up the fact that their party was involved in the biggest political scandal in modern U.S. history, where they fed disinformation, likely Russian disinformation from a campaign into the FBI and opened an investigation on the other campaign,” Nunes said.
Last week, this lawmaker made an unprecedented step, announcing plans to send criminal referrals to the Justice Department against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution team.
