Nunes: FBI Email Chain May Provide Evidence of FISA Abuses
Outgoing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) reacted to reports that a recently uncovered FBI email chain may show that the FISA warrant process was abused by officials seeking to collect intelligence on Trump associate Carter Page.
Nunes, who is expected to be replaced by current ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) as head of the committee, spoke to Sean Hannity about the reports.
He said that the Republicans on his committee have been pushing House leadership to un-redact parts of documents that he believes show that there were indeed abuses in the way the warrant on Page was obtained.
Nunes said that a lot of information about the validity of the Trump-Russia dossier composed by ex-British Spy Christopher Steele may have been withheld in the process of obtaining the warrant.
He said that several officials had "reservations" about the dossier.
Nunes said it would be crucial news if there indeed was a concerted effort to withhold vital information about the accuracy of the claims made about Trump in the dossier.
