'Fake News': Nunes Responds to Mueller Reportedly Probing Meeting With Flynn, Foreign Officials
According to The Daily Beast, the breakfast event -- which took place at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 18, 2017 -- has come under scrutiny by Mueller and federal prosecutors in Manhattan as part of a probe into whether foreign donors illegally funneled money into Trump's inaugural fund and a pro-Trump super PAC to buy influence in the White House.
"It’s always another day, they do another fake news story. I don’t even know what they’re talking about," Nunes (R-Calif.) said on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday, explaining that as former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and currently the leading Republican on the committee, it's his job to meet with foreign dignitaries.
Nunes, who served on Trump's transition team, said that during inauguration week, he attended numerous events, and he continues to work with foreign officials and ambassadors in Washington.
"The fact that I’m holding meetings with ambassadors -- you can have at it, because I do it every day," Nunes said.
Kilmeade noted that according to the report, prosecutors aren't looking at the meeting in and of itself, but if foreign donors illegally contributed to the inaugural fund.
"I don't put anything into this," Nunes said, noting that he worked on national security issues on the transition team and did not serve on the inaugural committee.
"If they want to come talk, we're available."
