Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said "Russia hoaxers" are scared of Attorney General Bill Barr and what results may come of investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. In an interview with FNC's Laura Ingraham, Nunes said the British intelligence services need to be asked about their role in starting the Russia probe, notably the notification then-President Barack Obama received about Christopher Steele.
"These Russia hoaxers just won't go away," Nunes said Monday night. "I think it shows that they're scared about what the Attorney General is doing. They're scared that there could be a grand jury convened in Connecticut."
REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-CA): Our president has been very concerned with what our allies in London and the U.K. have been doing all this time. One of the things that we found out in the course of this investigation is that we actually believe that the British did inform the United States government at some point. We're trying to get our hands on that document. We haven't been able to get it. So imagine that, that the Obama administration was notified about Steele's credibility and that wasn't actually turned over to the incoming Trump administration.
The president's aware of this. I believe he wants these questions answered. I'm not sure that he will bring them up with [outgoing Prime Minister Theresa] May because she's on her way out but for sure the U.K. intelligence services need to be posed these questions by our intelligence agencies.
