Saturday night Rep. Devin Nunes Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, joined Judge Jeanine on Fox News in an explosive interview discussing the Trump/ Russia probe.
Additionally, Nunes talked about a letter he sent to Oversight head Trey Gowdy of South Carolina and Judiciary’s Bob Goodlatte of Virginia asking that they question individuals openly into the continuing Russian investigation. (Video Below)
Rep. Devin Nunes is referring 42 Obama administration officials, FBI agents and outside political activists to a House task force for an investigation into how the Obama Justice Department targeted the Donald Trump campaign.
If the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and Judiciary Committee agree, their task force would conduct the most extensive probe to date on anti-Trump government operations in 2016. (RELATED: Right When Rosenstein Thought The Coast Is Finally Clear, Nunes Drops A MOAB On Him)
Nunes is asking his fellow GOP legislators to summon for public testimony all 42 — a cast of FBI, Justice Department and State Department officials and outside anti-Trump people with whom they communicated.
The Thursday letter to GOP House Chairmen Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte is the third sent by Nunes in recent days referring people to Congressional panels in what appears to be a massive expansion of the “SpyGate” probe into the FBI/DOJ counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign surrounding the 2016 US election.

As the Washington Examiner‘s Byron York notes, Nunes is up to something.
The short version is that the investigation is expanding to the two additional committees, even as Nunes devotes his own committee’s resources to learning whether the FBI used informants against the 2016 Trump campaign and, if so, how many, when, and how much money was spent on the project.
In the last week Nunes has sent three letters to Goodlatte and Gowdy, each recommending a number of people that the task force should interview. The first letter focused on current and former officials of the Justice Department and FBI, 17 in all, whose actions formed the focus of the first phase of Nunes’ investigation, on the Trump dossier.

The second letter focused on current and former officials of the State Department and some other agencies, 10 in all, whose role in the dossier and other matters formed the second part of Nunes’ probe.
And the third letter focused on people outside of government, 15 in all, whose names have popped up throughout the investigation.
So Nunes has sent three letters encircling three specific categories of individuals involved in the Trump-Russia investigation in some way or another, and has recommended that either Judiciary or Oversight committees interview each person.
