A day after President Donald Trump declared himself “vindicated” in the Russia investigation thanks to a controversial Republican memo alleging FBI wrongdoing, three Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee on Sunday broke with the president and said the memo changes nothing. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the only Republican on the committee who actually saw the classified FBI intelligence at the center of Rep. Devin Nunes’ divisive memo, said special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation should continue despite allegations of anti-Trump bias in the memo. “I actually don’t think it has any impact on the Russia probe,” Gowdy said on CBS’ Face the Nation. Rep. Will Hurd (R-T.X.) echoed Gowdy on ABC’s This Week. “I want to stress, Bob Mueller should be allowed to turn over every rock, pursue every lead so that we can have trust in knowing what actually the Russians did or did not do,” Hurd said. Rep. Chris Stewart (R-U.T.) said on the Fox News Sunday program, “It would be a mistake for anyone to suggest that the special counsel shouldn’t complete his work.” The memo “doesn’t end that need at all,” Stewart said.
