Chairman Nunes recently conducted an explosive interview with investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, where he dropped one bombshell after another.
Most importantly, Nunes made it clear that the FBI and DOJ are not “above the law,” and if FISA abuses occurred, they will have to answer for it in court.
From Full Measure
Sharyl: Congressman Adam Schiff says, your goal is to put the FBI on trial, and to put special council Bob Mueller’s investigation on trial.
Rep. Devin Nunes: Yeah, well FISA abuse has nothing to do with, with the Mueller investigation. As it relates to Department of Justice and the FBI, if they need to be put on trial, we will put them on trial. The reason that Congress exists is to oversee these agencies that we created. DOJ and FBI are not above the law. Congress created them, we oversee them, and we fund them. And if they’re committing abuse for a secret court, getting warrants on American citizens, you’re darn right that we’re going to put them on trial.
Sharyl: What would you say is the takeaway?
Rep. Devin Nunes: And I think people are just starting to learn now what really happened. Because as we peel more and more of this back, I think more and more Americans get educated. And I think that they’re gonna demand that changes are made.
