GOP Chairman Nunes Says Trump Was Wrong

Published

Congressmen Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) stood shoulder to shoulder this morning. The pair are the House Intelligence Committee chairman and ranking member. They spoke to reporters this morning about allegations President Donald Trump against former President Barack Obama. The committee is investigating both any wiretapping of Trump Tower but also what actions the Russian government took to undermine the 2016 election.

The two have different interpretations of how things need to be approached but neither believes there is any evidence that the former president acted listen in to conversations at Trump Tower. Nunes said, “We don’t have any evidence that that took place….I don’t think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower.”

Nunes went on to say, “Now you have to decide, as I mentioned to you last week, are you going to take the tweets literally? And if you are, then clearly the president was wrong.”

The House Committee had set Monday, March 13th as the deadline for the Department of Justice (DOJ)  to hand over any information they had to back up Trump’s claims. The DOJ asked for more time and now James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will testify in an open hearing on Monday morning. Both Nunes and Schiff have said they are willing to use the power they have to compel the administration to release the evidence they have.

The Senate also wants answers

On the other side of the Hill, senators are also getting anxious. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has also said that he would use his power to issue a subpoena to get to the bottom of the controversy. He said, on CNN this morning,  “I want to get to the bottom of it. The FBI would know if a warrant was issued. They would know if a warrant was applied for. I want to answer that question. If they do not provide the answer to that letter we wrote in a bipartisan fashion, there will be a bipartisan subpoena following the FBI.”
Given how strange this story has gotten, from officials suggesting the Obama administration used things such as microwave ovens and televisions, Monday should be an interesting day in Washington, DC.
