Go ahead, be shocked by Trump's Russian Federation ties - and investigate

Go ahead, be shocked by Trump's Russian Federation ties - and investigate”

Last week, Nunes said of the "incidental collection", which apparently occurred during the transition, from November to January, that "none of this surveillance was related to Russia or the investigation of Russian activities or of the Trump team".

The Democratic call comes on the heels of recent dramatic events in which Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, briefed President Trump at the White House after seeing documents that he says identified USA citizens in the Trump transition being caught up in incidental surveillance of intelligence agency targets. If the allegation were true, she said, "this is the greatest overreach and the greatest abuse of power that I think we've ever seen and a huge attack on democracy itself".

"There must have been a very strong push-back from the White House about the nature of Monday's hearing".

This dispute began Wednesday when Nunes held a snap press conference to announce that a source had revealed to him "dozens of reports" showing that unnamed United States intelligence agencies had collected information about Trump or members of his transition team as part of their "normal foreign surveillance".

Presumably, the Intelligence Committee chairman is referring to reports or other summaries of emails or phone conversations obtained by the NSA under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Clint Payne agreed, saying, "He was an unbelievable individual who loved everyone and tried to make the world a better place". The couple had no set itinerary for the trip to London , the family said, but instead enjoyed simply soaking in the city.

Devin Nunes, a former Trump adviser, reportedly jumped out of an Uber vehicle on Tuesday night to see potentially critical documents relating to the investigation of Trump aides, without informing his fellow passenger, a senior Washington staffer on the committee.

"He has not shown it to me", Gowdy told CBS's "Face the Nation." Many have called into question Nunes' ability to conduct a fair investigation of the Russian Federation matter. "So if that's a big deal in Washington, then we've sunk to a new low".

"These reports that I've read are, for the most part, valuable intelligence", Nunes said. That hearing would have featured testimony from former Obama administration officials, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Schiff held a separate press conference where he blamed Nunes for trying to "choke off" public information. Nunes' spokesman, Jack Langer, said the cancellation was more of a postponement and done because "we have additional questions arising from Monday's hearing" that lawmakers wanted to ask in a classified setting. "... Where I think that the House process went off the rails was with that venture by the chairman to the White House".

We encourage all concerned citizens to call for an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate the possible Russian interference in our election system for the sake of our democratic system of government.

Kayleagh also revealed that Coleman later sent a text message to Shane to thank him for his words of comfort. I was just talking to Seamus, teaching him how to breathe through it.' He remembered it all.

The House Intelligence Committee isn't the only game in town.

Intelligence committee hearings usually are behind closed doors, which made Monday's session with Comey and Rogers uncommon enough, and added to the drama of Comey's public announcement that the FBI was investigating close associates of the president for collusion with Russian Federation. Mark Warner (D-Va.) is "open" to an independent panel but said he still has "trust" his GOP chairman, Sen.

"I think this is overwhelmingly not information from or to an American", former NSA and Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Hayden told Chuck Todd Thursday on Meet the Press Daily.

Former Trump advisor Roger Stone and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort have both volunteered to testify before Congress in hopes to clear their names.
