In an interview with Breitbart News Republican Rep. Devin Nunes announced he is planning criminal referrals over Spygate next week.
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) is planning to send a criminal referral next week to the Justice Department that will detail “multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” including leaking classified information, as part of his investigation into misconduct at the Justice Department and the FBI.
“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” he told Breitbart News on Wednesday in an exclusive interview. “We will have some leakers in there for sure.”
“We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time. Basically from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players,” he said.
In addition, Nunes plans to interview about 50 people—some who have never been called before Congress—who were involved or know about the pushing of the “pee dossier” within various U.S. government agencies, and its use to get a surveillance warrant on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“It all stems from the fact that we know that this investigation started long before the end of July,” he said. “We are quite confident that this investigation started long before they told us that it did.”
He said it reaches all the way to the Obama White House, though it is not yet clear how involved former President Barack Obama was.
“Look, there’s big problems — big problems that the public needs to know about. Maximum transparency is the best thing here,” he said.
Nunes said he believes Barr will have to act on his criminal referral. “There’ll be things in there that cannot be ignored. There will be crimes … so they have to be dealt with,” he told Breitbart News.
It seems that the Republicans are taking President Trump’s remarks very seriously. Investigations into the deep state are on there way and it seems that there is nothing that the deep state can do about it.
President Trump is in a perfect position to start these investigations. If he went at them to soon it would likely look like he was trying to stop the investigations into himself. Since he has already been cleared that argument no longer exists.
