Forget collusion between Donald Trump and Russia — according to House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), it was Hillary Clinton who should be investigated for working with the Kremlin to undermine her opponent.
Discussing links between Nunes' controversial declassified memo and a request written by two Senate Republicans to investigate Trump-Russia dossier author and former British spy Christopher Steele, Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed that the two documents taken together paint a portrait of collusion between Clinton's campaign and the Kremlin.
"Sir, are there crimes committed here?" he asked Nunes, who appeared to agree and said he hoped viewers "understood" Hannity's comments.
"We have a clear link to Russia," the chairman said. "You have a campaign who hired a law firm, who hired [dossier author firm] Fusion GPS, who hired a foreign agent, who got information from the Russians on another campaign."
"It seems like a counterintelligence investigation should have been opened up against the Hillary Campaign when [the FBI] got a hold of the dossier," Nunes continued, "but that didn't happen either."
Later, Nunes reiterated that he has seen "clear evidence of collusion — that the Democratic party and the Hillary Clinton campaign colluded with the Russians."
