Devin Nunes is done playing around. He wants answers and he wants them right now.
Look, the Mueller investigation is coming to a head here any day now. Take it to the bank that something will happen before Labor Day.
So to prepare for the inevitable, Devin Nunes made his move.
From Fox News:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes gave Sean Hannity an update on the investigation into the FISA warrant that led to federal surveillance on a former Trump campaign aide, and the production of the unverified Steele-Russia dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump.
Nunes (R-Calif.) said his committee is finally getting some more of the information it requested, but several important issues remain outstanding.
“We still have information that we need from the DOJ,” he said.
Nunes said he is still waiting for about 20 pages relating to the FISA warrant that allowed for spying on Carter Page: “We need that declassified.”
He said that the FBI interviewed one senior Justice Department official, former drug enforcement task force Director Bruce G. Ohr, “a dozen times and produced reports” called 302s — which Nunes’ committee also has requested.
Nunes said that after the FBI cut ties with former MI6 Agent Christopher Steele, who had compiled the dossier, Ohr continued to meet with the spy and get information from him.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for the same opposition research firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS.
Sean Hannity predicted much more information will come out regarding Ohr’s activities.
From the Washington Examiner:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said on Monday that Bruce Ohr, a former top official in the Justice Department, will become “more and more important” as GOP lawmakers look for evidence of power abuse and corruption at the highest levels of the Obama administration.
“I think people should pay close attention to it,” the California Republican said to Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
Nunes was referring to findings that suggest Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the Trump dossier on behalf of the Clinton campaign, kept supplying allegations to the FBI after the 2016 election, even though by that point he was terminated as a source by the bureau for giving confidential information to the media.
