Rep. Devin Nunes last week did enormous damage to the credibility of the House intelligence committee he chairs when he released an inaccurate memo created to undermine the probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
The campaign committee for House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes has been funding a website billed as a local news outlet.
CBS News reports that the wall is expected to be build this spring and is a sign of "increasing partisan hostilities" in the House Intelligence Committee. While committee Republicans have denied any knowledge of the plan, they intimated that it was conceived by Nunes.
"I'm not part of that decision", Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) told the network.
"I swear to God I didn't know that", Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL) said. While acknowledging a wall might not be constructive for the committee's work, he said, "The level of trust and the level of everything down there is-it's poison". The White House is now reviewing a rebuttal memo authored by Democrats on the committee. He announced he would recuse himself from that investigation previous year, and his work on the committee culminated recently in a dispute over a GOP memo he spearheaded alleging FBI surveillance abuses.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top House Intel Democrat who Trump claimed is "one of the biggest liars and leakers" in DC, hit back at the irony in the President's request for revisions when the White House approved publishing the Republicans' "deeply flawed and inaccurate memo" without redactions.
