    Phase 2 of Nunes investigation

    Lawmakers in dark about 'phase two' of Nunes investigation

    It would appear more is coming

    House Intelligence Committee lawmakers are in the dark about an investigation into wrongdoing at the State Department announced by Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) on Friday.
    Democrats on the committee say Nunes has refused to brief them on the probe, which he described as “phase two” of his investigation into alleged surveillance abuse at the Department of Justice. Senior members say they learned of the investigation when Nunes announced it on Fox News.
    And some committee Republicans appear to know little more than the Democrats.
    Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), the No. 2 Republican on the panel, said he had been briefed on “some of the priorities” of the probe but said he believes Nunes will lead the investigation. Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), who along with Conaway is leading the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, throughout the week has said he doesn’t know what the focus of the new probe will be.“He hasn’t talked to me about that,” Rooney said Monday, several days after Nunes announced the inquiry into State.
    Some key Republicans insist that the new focus on State is nothing more than the committee exercising its oversight powers.
    One member called the characterization of the State inquiries as a new investigation “a garble.”
    Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who was intimately involved in the creation of the surveillance memo released by Republicans and is participating in the inquiry into the State Department, also doesn’t view what Nunes is doing as a “phase II,” according to an aide, but rather an ongoing examination.
    “It’s not Devin launching another investigation,” Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) said. “We’re aware of it, we’ve talked about it, it’s just something that we know as much about at this point. That’s not because Devin has kept from us, it’s just we don’t know that much about it yet.”
    Despite expressing some private uncertainty about the future of the committee’s expanding investigative purview, Republicans did not suggest they were being deliberately excluded from Nunes’s plans.
    Democrats repeatedly pressed Nunes on the scope of his investigation into State in a bitter closed-door Monday meeting, the transcript of which was released on Friday. Nunes did not address the matter.
    The apparent confusion comes as Democrats have accused Nunes — they suggest perhaps alone — of breaking committee rules by launching new investigations without briefing the minority.
    "What you can glean from the process, in what he is saying, is this is not a committee activity, this is a Devin Nunes activity or arguably maybe a majority activity,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) said Thursday. “But again, none of the Democrats to my knowledge have been briefed on this.”

    Oh

    I thought you meant we were gonna finally investigate that weasel. It's obvious to to me that Devin Nunes is nothing more than Trump's puppet.

    And yet all of the things coming out point to Democrats and the abuse of power.

    What about all of the text that point to a cover up? Or is it OK because they were all working to try and get a Democrat elected.

    and Comey and lynch? They're Obama/Clinton puppets. They're getting what they are trying to dish out on an innocent man. Apparently you're in denial about how deep this thing goes. But wait, Nunes will bring it all out *grin*

    The Weasel James Comey is being investigated.....over the Hatch act.

    As to your obviousness.....that's not saying much since you aren't in touch with reality. Let us know when you actually start to catch up to Reality. Then see if you can engage with something else other than the Demo Undergrounds talking points.

    Politics are involved in all Congressional investigations, both sides try to paint things in the better light for their side. Who knows where this will end and what direction it will lead.

    Actually no, they only do that if you listen to the limited number of RW media outlets and Devin Nunes himself, who is an obvious water carrier for the *president* and has no credibility.

    The texts, every time you look at the context, turnout to be perfectly innocuous. Remember, first they showed bias from the whole FBI until they didn't. Then they pointed to a "secret society" until they didn't. Now they show Obama's personal involvement in the clinton investigation, except they don't. They mean nothing except that two people were disaffected with candidate and *president* trump.

    It's time to put down those buckets and look around.

    Not my first choice no, but then again he doesn't come from my state so I didn't have a say in it.

    OTOH he light years ahead of Pompeo who was previously my rep. I'm not as familiar with the new guy as I should be though.
