FBI has info suggesting coordination between Trump aides, Russia: report
The FBI has information suggesting that associates of President Trump may have worked with Russian operatives to release information aimed at hurting former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign, CNN reported Wednesday, citing U.S. officials.
FBI Director James Comey on Monday revealed that his agency is investigating Trump and his aides' potential ties to Russia, as well as possible coordination with Moscow.
The revelation confirmed months-long speculation that Trump's aides were included in federal probes of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
They must move to have an independent investigation in tandem with the FBI probe. Nunes is just a Trump stooge and he is chairman of the investigation? From the article...
Tensions grew among members of the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, after the panel’s chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) announced that he had seen evidence that the intelligence community incidentally collected information on Trump transition team members as part of routine surveillance of foreign targets.
Without discussing the matter with the Intelligence Committee, Nunes went to the White House to brief Trump on the information, sparking fury among committee Democrats. Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) slammed Nunes’s decision, accusing him of routing the panel and muddying the investigation.
"The Chairman also shared this information with the White House before providing it to the committee, another profound irregularity, given that the matter is currently under investigation,” Schiff said in a statement on Wednesday.
“I have expressed my grave concerns with the Chairman that a credible investigation cannot be conducted this way."
