House Intelligence chair responds to Trump-Russia investigation by calling for new Clinton probe
Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing opened with the revelation that the FBI’s inquiry into Russian electoral interference on Donald Trump’s behalf includes an investigation of the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia.
But later, citing no reasons whatsoever, House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) suggested to FBI Director James Comey that his bureau should also look into possible collusion between Russian officials and the candidate they wanted to lose — Hillary Clinton.
“You announced this morning that there will be an investigation into Trump associates’ possible — and President Trump and anyone around the campaign and any association with the Russian government,” Nunes began. “If this committee — or anyone else for that matter, someone from the public — comes with information to you about the Hillary Clinton campaign or their associates or someone from the Clinton Foundation, will you add that to your investigation? They have ties to Russian intelligence services, Russian agents — would that be something of interest to you?”
Comey — who is clearly never been shy about investigating Hillary Clinton — wouldn’t rule it out.
“People bring us information about what they think is improper and unlawful activity of any kind and we will evaluate it,” he said. “Not just in this context. Folks send us stuff all the time — they should keep doing that.”

7. This has already been woven into the RW talking points
In a "debate" with a Trump chump yesterday on FB, he repeatedly dismissed Trump's myriad wrongdoings by asking "what about the investigation into Clinton's ties with Russia?"
The misinformation and double-speak goes in one ear and right out their ass.
