House Republicans have found evidence that Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team may have misled the courts and Congress and are considering making criminal referrals asking the Justice Department to investigate those prosecutors, a key lawmaker says.
Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Just the News that his team has been scouring recent documents released by the FBI, including witness reports known as 302s, and found glaring evidence that contradicts claims the Mueller team made to courts and Congress.
"We're now going through these 302s, and we're going to be making criminal referrals on the Mueller dossier team, the people that put this Mueller report together," Nunes said during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast set to air on Tuesday.
Nunes specifically reacted to a story in Just the News disclosing that FBI interview memos of key figure George Papadopoulos show he was helpful in trying to locate a witness named Joseph Mifsud but that Mueller's prosecutors portrayed Papdopoulos as trying to thwart or frustrate the investigation's efforts to question Mifsud.
The new FBI memos provide "our first evidence of the Mueller team lying to the court. It a lie. It's a total lie," the lawmaker said, referring to the Mueller team's claim that Papadopoulos tried to hinder efforts to locate and question Mifsud.

House Dems would ever let it happen!
Make all the referrals you want, the DOJ won’t do anything.
Would that be a promise?
Yea, yea, yea.
This needs to be retitled "house republicans go full retard".
Let me know when somebody goes to jail...
Update: Authorities have ruled the death of Rep. Devin Nunes was a suicide after finding a gun beside his body.
Lots of room in Barr’s bagpipe to hide referrals.
are all you Eeyores stalking me?
get a grip and hope to hell that DJT can pull this off!
He’s got miles to go before he sleeps.
That's GOP-speak for "You've upset us this time!"
Go for it!
Whatever happened to the Durham investigation?
That means a mildly worded letter of concern is on the way.
John Solomon BUMP!
