CNN: Nunes Still Reviewing Russia Intel, Despite Recusal
According to a report by CNN, the former head of the House Russia investigation, Rep. Devin Nunes, is continuing to review intelligence related to the investigation—despite his recusal. Nunes allegedly took a trip to the CIA this week to review Russia intelligence, House Intelligence Committee sources told CNN. Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) allegedly shrugged when asked about the scenario. “He recused himself, so he can set those limits,” Quigley said. Two months ago, when Nunes went on a trip to the White House to review intelligence obtained by White House staff, he threatened to derail the House investigation and eventually was forced to recuse himself. “I don’t talk about intelligence,” Nunes said Thursday, when asked why he was still reviewing Russian intelligence.
