House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes reacted to a New Yorker expose on Trump-Russia dossier compiler Christopher Steele.

Nunes said the piece is "more evidence about how dirty this dossier is."

While voicing concern that the piece appeared in a reliably left-wing magazine, Nunes said that if parts of the story are true it helps the committee majority's case.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes reacted to a New Yorker expose on Trump-Russia dossier compiler Christopher Steele.

"The dossier on the face of it is ridiculous," Nunes said. "The Russians had an operation against us, but they’ve always had an operation against the United States of America, going back for many, many years and many elections."

The piece's author, Jane Mayer, noted a Washington Post report that President Obama was sent an "intelligence bombshell" by CIA brass, alleging that the Russians were cyber-campaigning against a presidential candidate.

The report said Robert Hannigan, the head of the United Kingdom's intelligence arm, claimed there were "illicit communications between the Trump team and Moscow," Martha MacCallum said.

Nunes, a Republican from Tulare, Calif., said he was not sure those exact reports were true, citing the New Yorker's alleged political bent.

"Stating the obvious that the Russians were trying to interfere in our elections, that was myself and Republicans that warned of that," he said.

"This is just more evidence about how dirty this dossier is," he said, calling the piece a "rehabilitation project" on behalf of the former MI6 spy Steele.
