The House Intelligence Committee Says Leaks And Russia Probes On Hold Until FBI Director James Comey And NSA Director Rogers Again Testify On Capitol Hill.

Devin Nunes Chief of the House Intelligence Committee has put the Committee on hold in their investigations of Trump Transition Team leaks and Russia/Trump probe. So Comey and Rogers are holding up major investigations. It seems this would be embarrassing to Comey, but honestly after just watching his questioning on Capitol Hill on March 20, 2017 by Trey Gowdy, I am questioning the mental health of Comey.
In trying to understand who could have briefed President Obama of the Trump surveillance which ended up in two newspapers, Gowdy repeatedly questioned Comey and gave him every chance to tell the truth. He just can’t seem to do it, and he must be in deep himself to be this secretive. In fact, it seems to me that he himself could have briefed President Obama of Trump surveillance.
The good news is the House Intelligence Committee’s probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, including potential ties between the Trump team and the Kremlin, is effectively on hold. There will no more questioning of witnesses until the two spy chiefs return to Capitol Hill for a still-unscheduled private briefing. They failed to show up for their private hearing with the Committee on March 28, 2017. So Comey has it all in his hands at this point.
Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’s declaration Tuesday that “until [FBI Director James B.] Comey comes forward, it’s hard for us to move forward with interviews and depositions” comes as an indefinite stop order on a roster of expected interviews and testimony, from top Trump campaign surrogates to top intelligence and law enforcement officials serving during the election and transition period.
Late last week, Nunes (R-Calif.) canceled an open hearing scheduled for Tuesday that would have featured testimony from former director of national intelligence James R. Clapper, former CIA director John Brennan, and former acting attorney general Sally Yates. He did so, he said, “in order to make time available” for Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers to brief the panel on “additional information” that came up during an open hearing with the same spy chiefs last Monday.

Nunes told reporters Tuesday that he intended to reschedule Yates, Clapper and Brennan for an open hearing “as soon as we can get the questions answered from the FBI director.” “That would be a logical first step,” Nunes added. But he did not say when he expected Comey to return to the committee, or whether he believed the FBI director could answer all his questions in one more closed-door meeting.
Nunes and Rep. Adam B. Schiff (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, are also waiting on information from the FBI, NSA and CIA in response to a letter they sent the three agency directors this month, asking for a full list of names of U.S. persons whose identities had been exposed after popping up in surveillance reports directed at other targets. Nunes, who has refused to reveal his source or the full substance of what he has seen, told reporters that the information he viewed at the White House suggesting that even the president’s identity may have been revealed would be part of those documents.
I do not understand how FBI Director James Comey by law can hold up the investigation of the House Intelligence Committee and its important work. What is he hiding? Is he putting off being charged of a felony which carries with it a 10 year prison term?
The following applies to Devin Nunes as he fights his battle against his fellow Committee members, who are asking him to step down, which he says he definitely will not.
U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said on Tuesday he will not divulge – even to other members of his panel – who gave him intelligence reports that indicated President Donald Trump and his associates may have been ensnared in incidental intelligence collection.
Asked by an ABC News reporter whether he would inform the other committee members about who gave him the reports he viewed on the White House grounds last week, Nunes said: “We will never reveal those sources and methods.”
Devin Nunes is under so much pressure right now, I know it makes his job so much harder, and some speculate his source is President Trump. According to what I have gathered in my research it is FREEDOM WATCH and Lawyer Larry Klayman representing NSA/CAI whistleblower Dennis Montgomery. At this point, I am wondering if I have the story straight. However, FBI Director James Comey is holding the truth hostage, and I am just thankful Devin Nunes is honorable and a strong man. I wish I could say the same about Comey.
