Devin Nunes is bringing back James Comey to answer questions in a private setting that he would not answer in public.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in that meeting.
Will Comey admit he briefed Obama on Team Trump surveillance, including Michael Flynn?
Will Comey explain WHY “incidental” surveillance DID take place on Trump team members?
House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes had four announcements in regards to the panel’s investigation into the Obama administration’s supposed surveillance of Donald Trump’s transition team.
First, Nunes and ranking committee member Rep. Adam Schiff agreed that the FBI will brief the entire panel on the counterintelligence investigation, instead of just the two of them.
Second, he noted he has asked FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael S. Rogers to appear in closed session, postponing their next public hearing. Asked if the committee is meeting with Comey in a closed session because he was not fully forthcoming at Monday’s hearing, Nunes said there were questions he “probably couldn’t answer in public session.” Nunes also told reporters he was not calling Comey back based on documents he’s seen.
Third, Nunes said the NSA has kept them “completely informed” and it is possible they will receive the documents they have requested on Friday, though he “doesn’t expect the entirety of everything they need.”
