Nunes Claims Trump Russian Investigation Moving Forward
While there have been a lot of reports and rumors regarding possible ties of President Donal Trump to Russia, this morning news is breaking that, after Democrats have called for Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to step aside from the investigation, he has claimed he is “moving forward” with it.
In a statement to CNN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said, “The Chair of the House Intelligence has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the country. Chairman Nunes’ discredited behavior has tarnished that office. (House) Speaker (Paul) Ryan must insist that Chairman Nunes at least recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation immediately. That leadership is long overdue.”
Other key democrats- including Adam Schiff– have called for Nunes to be removed from the investigation.
With all of that being said, Nunes spoke out to CNN this morning to claim that he is “moving forward” with the investigation regarding Russia/Trump.
This is interesting, as it seems to confirm- at least at this point- that Nunes will not be removing himself from this investigation. Also, if the words are taken at face value, it seems to indicate an investigation regarding Trump and Russia is going forward.
