House Intel Chair Asks Comey: Would You Probe Potential Clinton-Russia Ties?

Source: Talking Points Memo



By ALLEGRA KIRKLAND Published MARCH 20, 2017, 12:27 PM EDT

Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing was devoted to Russian interference in the U.S. election, including potential ties between President Donald Trump’s allies and Russian officials. But the committee's Republican chairman made sure to get in some questions about Hillary Clinton.

“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?” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) asked FBI Director James Comey. “If they have ties to Russian intelligence services, Russian agents, would that be something of interest to you?”

“If people bring us information about what they think is improper, unlawful activity of any kind, we will evaluate it," Comey replied. "Not just in this context. Folks send us stuff all the time. They should keep doing that.”

Comey confirmed Monday that the FBI was conducting an investigation into whether there was “coordination” between the Russian government and Trump campaign.

So Hillary would collude with Russia and Putin to make sure she lost the election?

8. I'd agree with that assessment. If she won in 2016 I think I'd have to reassess reality.

Putin and his -istas hated her.

The Reeps are truly getting buggy and crazy

3. I think most in the US

Could no longer give a shit about Hillary Clinton. They know she isn't President...nor will she ever be at this point. It is simply red meat for the 20% of Trump deplorable panel of shit stains.

10. Trump Tweeted Today

"What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?"

So it's just Nunes carrying on with Trump's effort to deflect, as usual

11. Me (sadly - bigly) being a resident of Nunes district

I'm hoping that he'll end up with enough SHIT clinging to him that we can oust the dough-faced asshat come next election! He's just been paying his dues until his elevation to this prominent Intel job. NOW - some public scrutiny BEYOND his district might bring a clearer focus on him - like an ant on a sunny day - under a magnifying glass!

15. Nunes acting more complicit every day, bending over backward for Dump

WHY? He was on Dump transition team, did Nunes meet w/Russians or was he bribed? Did he get listening devices planted in Dem Congress'l offices?
