Devin Nunes: If DOJ Has Nothing To Hide, ‘Show Us The Documents’
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes criticized the Department of Justice on Fox News Sunday for failing to provide him with documents related to the Russia investigation.
Nunes hit back on claims that he was trying to leak the identity of an FBI informant who was found to be spying on the Trump campaign, and said deep state actors are keeping requested documents from his committee. (RELATED: President Trump Calls For Documents Regarding Campaign Infiltration)
“I can tell you that nobody was ever interested in an informant,” Nunes asserted. “We asked for specific documents that we still have not received from the Department of Justice. So they continue to leak out things about this informant and we don’t know if there is one informant of more informants because there’s so much out there now.”
The California congressman added that he is still working on uncovering the role of the Steele dossier in the DOJ obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
“We have a right to get the information,” he said. “If James Comey and many others and people who are currently at the Department of Justice today continue to say there’s nothing to see here — well, if there’s nothing to see here, show us the documents we’re asking for.”
