MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday suggested if the Republican Party “wants to of what is best for this county,” it will remove Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Scarborough made the remarks after Nunes told President Donald Trump that the U.S. intelligence community may have incidentally collected information on members of the Trump transition team prior to his inauguration.
