Nunes: Time for Phase Two of the House Investigation

Democrats and defenders of the FBI have their hands full after the release of the memo which demonstrates clearly that the FBI used a Democrat-fabricated dossier to justify surveillance on the Trump campaign.

But that’s just the beginning. House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes revealed on Fox News yesterday that he and his colleagues are now moving to Phase 2 of the investigation into collusion by the Obama administration.

This next phase will dig into evidence that the Obama State Department also colluded to influence the election.

But since we already know that agency was activity shielding Hillary from the email server investigation, it shouldn’t be difficult to find collusion.

Here’s more from The Hill…

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) revealed Friday that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would examine other agencies, including the State Department, after releasing a controversial memo alleging surveillance abuses.

Speaking on Fox News just hours after Republicans on the committee released a memo alleging surveillance abuses by the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ), Nunes said the panel was moving to “phase two” of its investigation.

“We are in the middle of what I call phase two of our investigation, which involves other departments, specifically the State Department and some of the involvement that they had in this,” Nunes said.

“That investigation is ongoing and we continue work towards finding answers and asking the right questions to try to get to the bottom of what exactly the State Department was up to in terms of this Russia investigation.”

Nunes was asked whether his panel would be releasing additional memos as part of their probe after the White House declassified information to allow Nunes to release a memo alleging that senior FBI and DOJ officials abused their powers to spy on members of President Trump’s campaign.
