Ranking member and democrat Adam Schiff called on Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the House Intelligence Committee Investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The call comes less than a week after Chairman Nunes informed the White House about potentially being the victims of a spying campaign by the Trump Administration.
Today, it was revealed that the informant that made the intelligence reports available to Nunes did so on White House property. The scandal!
“After much consideration, and in light of the Chairman’s admission that he met with his source of information at the White House, I believe that the Chairman should recuse himself from any further involvement in the Russia investigation, as well as any involvement in oversight of matters pertaining to any incidental collection of the Trump transition, as he was also a key member of the transition team,” Schiff said in a statement. “This is not a recommendation I make lightly, as the Chairman and I have worked together well for several years.”
It has been months that the Democrats and media have been investigating Russian/Trump ties. The FBI claims they’ve been incestigating since July 2016. All this time and there is not 1 solid piece of evidence showing collusion.
And that’s why Schiff is pounding his chest and calling for a recusal. They’ve got nothing.
