Following reports that the Republican Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes went straight to the White House instead of briefing members of his committee on his apparent new findings, American Bridge spokesperson Sabrina Singh released the following statement:
“Rep. Nunes has lost all of his credibility. From the start it was difficult to see how he could conduct this investigation in an impartial fashion considering he served as a senior member of the Trump transition, but today he made it clear that his partisan agenda is his top priority. For all we know he could be looking at his own name in any incidental collection done by American intelligence agencies and now misleading the public about it, a reality that underscores the need for a special prosecutor.
“Nunes is a White House pawn. He can’t be trusted in any capacity, let alone one that has him overseeing what should be an unbiased investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia.”
