Leak is the 'one crime we know of' in Russia investigation: GOP Intelligence Committee chair Nunes

Sun Mar 19, 2017 | 10:44am EDT

The Republican head of a congressional panel investigating accusations of Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election said on Sunday a leak involving former Trump aide Michael Flynn was a crime and that the panel was probing whether other names were leaked.

"The one crime we know that's been committed is that one: the leaking of someone's name ...," Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told Fox News Sunday.

Trump has been dogged by allegations that his associates had ties to Russian officials. Trump fired Flynn, his former national security adviser, last month after he failed to disclose contacts with Russia's ambassador before Trump took office on Jan. 20.

Trump has found himself at odds with Democrats and Republicans alike, including Nunes, over his March 4 assertion that the Obama administration tapped his phones during the 2016 presidential campaign.

UPDATE:

House Intel Chair: No FISA Warrant 'That I'm Aware Of' On Trump Tower

By ESME CRIBB Published MARCH 19, 2017, 1:17 PM EDT

House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) said on Sunday that he is not aware of any foreign intelligence surveillance court (FISA) warrant for surveillance of Trump Tower.

"Was there a physical wiretap of Trump Tower? No, but there never was," Nunes said on "Fox News Sunday." He said that information the House Intelligence Committee received from the FBI on Friday "continues to lead us in that direction."

"The President doesn't go and physically wiretap something. So if you take the President literally, it didn't happen," Nunes said. "I think the concern that we have is that, were there any other surveillance activities that were used."

"I just want to make that point," Chris Wallace said. "There is no evidence that there was any wiretap, I'm not talking about President Obama doing it but his administration, no evidence of any wiretapping of Trump Tower?"

"There was no FISA warrant that I'm aware of to tap Trump Tower, that's correct," Nunes said. "That's accurate."

1. Methinks nunes speaketh with a forked tongue.

What more can we expect from a republican?
Everyone knows (except maybe faux news people) that all the president's men were busy talking to Russia about the election.

3. Also has the shifty eyes.

He will attempt to blanket the fire before it spreads. He will likely get scorched by his proximity to the flames.

7. I can't BEGIN to tell you how feckless Nunes is

I have the sad admission that Nunes is my congress-dunce. His one skill is taking money from special interests and shitting on his human constituency. It's BIG FARM-ah money that keeps him in DC. Otherwise he'd be here in his district - milking cows instead of the federal teats.

4. Is he saying leaking the name of a criminal is the only crime.

I guess having a gang of criminals in the White house isn't the problem for republicans, but leaking the evidence one of them committed a crime is the real crime???

6. I can not agree more!

Impeachment would be WAY TOO EASY for the GOP mob. It would only give us more lies with a phony christian frosting applied. I've doggedly clung to my resistance towards owning a gun - but maybe it's time to buy one or two. A pitchfork makes for good imagery, but a gun is more practical as an intimidation.

9. divert from blame, distract from original point

these jerks are NOT going to do anything to the terrible triumvirate....Flynn is the only one that has been made to or will fall on their sword as sacrifice to these three decadent, depraved, immoral pagans running our country now.....bannon, milller, stupidass.

10. What were Feinstein and Grassley told in the meeting with

Comey last week, and will it come out in the committee hearings tomorrow?
