Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is demanding that special counselor Robert Mueller release all of his information to the House Intelligence Committee, but according to one colleague he’s not working with his fellow members on it, much less keeping them abreast.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Kassie Hunt, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) was asked about the Nunes request and revealed he’s not much for government transparency.
“We haven’t had notification from Mr. Nunes about anything he’s going to do for months now,” Quigley said. “He has undertaken rogue investigations. He’s working with the White House to prepare his own memo. He began the investigation with the midnight ride to the White House, which was very clear that he was getting information, then turning it back to the White House to show some other conspiracy.”
Quigley said that Nunes also put a halt to anyone being able to issue “subpoenas on documents and people of critical interest.”
“He’s basically worked hand in glove with the White House to thwart the investigation, so what he’s doing now, which is unilateral, rogue, against the rules of the committee and the House, is absolutely nothing new,” he explained.
He went on to call attempts by the GOP to paint the FBI as an unethical agency “desperate attempts” to “protect the president publicly and legally.”
“Nothing in all the wild allegations they’ve made for over a year and a half now has been found to be true,” he continued. “So, we can only expect this to continue.”
