Devin Nunes has uncovered the biggest scandal in American political history.
The FBI and the Obama administration used the fake news Russia dossier to spy on the Trump campaign.
And Nunes has one letter that has the Deep State in a panic.
The second phase in Nunes’ investigation is centered around determining who in the government had access to the Russia dossier and how they made use of it.
Chairman Nunes already sent a questionnaire to 20 law enforcement officials, the intelligence community, and government officials asking about their dealings with the dossier.
But the big news is he is now casting a wider net.
He told Breitbart that he is expanding the number of officials he is questioning about their dealings with the dossier.
“House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Breitbart News on Saturday the committee will likely send more officials a list of questions about when they knew about the Russia dossier and what they did with it.
“There’s likely going to be more people who will get it as the investigation unfolds, and if they don’t respond, they’ll be subpoenaed,” Nunes said in an exclusive interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
“If you’re an official and you knew about this, the Congress has a right to know about it, and so do the American people,” he added.
Last week, the committee sent a list of questions to more than 20 current and former law enforcement, intelligence, and State Department officials, asking when they knew about the dossier and what they did with it. Fox News reported that three of the recipients are former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The other recipients have not been named.
Nunes said one of the reasons the committee would not identify who has gotten the questionnaire is that they do not want recipients to coordinate their responses.
“We don’t want to let all the people know who’s getting it because, for one thing, we don’t want them coordinating their responses because we believe that some people will answer the questionnaire,” he said.”
The dossier is the key to this scandal.
In his memo, Nunes noted that former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe testified there would have been no FISA warrant without it.
And when the Democrats released their memo in response, they did not challenge that point.
Determining who had access to the dossier—and what they did with it—will go a long way in determining how widespread this scandal really was.
