Nunes on Release of Mueller 'Dossier': Dems Will Immediately Leak Info to Media 'Buddies'
Says 'full transparency' needed on how probe began.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Monday that he views the Mueller report as a "dossier," arguing that it was assembled by a team of "partisans."
The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee was asked by Harris Faulkner about Attorney General William Barr's promise to send Congress a redacted version of the report within weeks.
"We really do want to see not just the report, but the underlying information," he said, adding that former officials like James Comey, John Brennan, Loretta Lynch, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page must also be investigated.
He said he's eager to see the Mueller team's investigators' witness interviews and subpoenas and whether any wiretaps were used.
"I just want to make sure everybody understands what full transparency means," he said, calling it "silly" for Mueller to look into President Trump for obstructing justice because Comey "illegally" leaked documents to the media after his firing.
Nunes said Democrats want the full report so they can immediately leak classified information to their "buddies in the media" and keep the Russia collusion narrative going.
He said criminal referrals will be sent from Republicans to the Justice Department for Obama-era intelligence officials and the FISA warrant to surveil a member of the Trump campaign.
"The House Republicans on the Intelligence Committee were the first to come out and say that something is really wrong here, something stunk. We now know that they used the counterintelligence services to target a political campaign ... It's not a matter of politics. This is is a matter of whether people broke the law."
