Nunes: The FBI is Not Cooperating With Our Investigation

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) told reporters, following a meeting with President Trump, that the FBI is not cooperating with the House’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Earlier in the day, Nunes told reporters that he had been presented evidence that confirms members of President Trump’s transition team were under surveillance, and would be headed to the White House to brief President Trump on the matter.

After meeting with President Trump, Nunes took some questions from reporters that were gathered outside of the White House.

A reporter pointed out that people were aware of some incidental collection because of General Michael Flynn, and asked if this goes beyond the wiretapping that President Trump had tweeted about.

“It definitely goes beyond what happened to General Flynn. Now, of course, we don’t actually know yet, officially, what happened to General Flynn,” Nunes told the reporter. “We just know that his name leaked out, but we don’t know how it was picked up yet. That was one of the things that we asked for in our March 15th letter, was for the NSA, CIA, and FBI to get us all the unmasking that was done.”

Nunes went on to say that the NSA is being cooperative, but told the reporter, “the FBI has not told us whether or not they’re going to respond to our March 15th letter, which is now a couple of weeks old.”
