The already steaming political world is only getting hotter. Sunday on Fox News, Rep. Devin Nunes dropped a bombshell during an interview with Maria Bartiromo.
“We now know that there was no official intelligence that was used to start this investigation. We know that Sidney Blumenthal and others were pushing information into the State Department. So we’re trying to piece all that together and that’s why we continue to look at the State Department,” Nunes said.
Nunes continued, “This is really important to us because the intelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens.
He then went after the Obama DOJ, “So, we’ve long wanted to know what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation. So what we found now after the investigators have reviewed it is in fact there was no intelligence. So we have a traditional partnership with what’s called the Five Eyes Agreement…”
Maria Bartiromo followed up to his comments, “Mr. Chairman you’ve got to explain what you just said. I think this is extraordinary. That you’re telling us that in order for the FBI, the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into so-called collusion between President Trump and the Russians there was no official intelligence used. Then how did this investigation start?”
