    The House Intelligence Committee's ranking Republican member, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), reportedly declined to answer at a closed-door committee hearing Thursday whether he had received materials from Ukrainian sources meant to damage former Vice President Joe Biden's (D) reputation ahead of the 2020 election. CNN reported Thursday that Nunes was questioned repeatedly by another committee member, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), about his alleged contacts with a Ukranian politician, Andrii Derkach, who himself is a close associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's attorney who last year boasted publicly of a trip to Ukraine for the purpose of investigating Biden's past....

    Republicans are broadening their investigation into special counsel Robert Mueller as the Obamagate controversy heats up. Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said fresh criminal referrals are imminent as more people come forward with information about what Trump allies view to have been a plot to undermine the president. "Weve also expanded our investigation into the Mueller team and everything that happened with Mueller and the people at DOJ and FBI that were above Mueller. And so, we will be making criminal referrals in the coming weeks against the Mueller team. We're just now putting...

    Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., asked on Wednesday what the hell Obama administration officials were doing after they purportedly requested to "unmask" the identity of former national security adviser Michael Flynn during the presidential transition period. The House Intelligence Committee ranking member asked the question on Fox News @Night after a list of names from that controversial process was made public on Wednesday. It appears to me like what they were doing is a lot of them went wild after Trump won. They got poisoned with this Russia hoax, Nunes said. That's why you had Obama ambassadors across the globe unmasking,...

    Rep. Devin Nunes, top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, vowed to pursue multiple new criminal referrals amid ongoing revelations in the Justice Department's handling of the Russia probe.

    Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the Republican strategy during the House investigation into the Russia probe focused an asking if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The answer they got: none. We had a strategy here that we wanted to get every single person that we interviewed, to say whether or not they knew of any evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians, Nunes said during an interview on Sunday Morning Futures. Furthermore, what you will see is that we've been asked questions about hearsay. Did they hear anything? Do...

    Former national security advisor and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and then hired new lawyers who moved to withdraw his plea, has had his “bombshell” moment, according to some. According to others, there was not much to see here other than routine FBI tactics. On Wednesday night, the documents that Fox News host Maria Bartiromo’s sources promised would “exonerate” Flynn dropped. When they did, conservatives said that the documents were proof that the FBI entrapped and even “set up” Flynn. Bartiromo said the documents represented a “confirmed setup.” How much is enough?...
