In a stunning punctuation to Rep. Devin Nunes’s (R-CA) troubled tenure as the head of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into the Trump Campaign’s involvement with Russia’s operation to undermine the 2016 presidential election, CNN is reporting this evening that intelligence documents, referenced by Rep. Nunes as evidence of wrong doing by the Obama administration, prove nothing of the sort.
According to CNN:
“After a review of the same intelligence reports brought to light by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and aides have so far found no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, multiple sources in both parties tell CNN.“Their private assessment contradicts President Donald Trump’s allegations that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice broke the law by requesting the “unmasking” of US individuals’ identities. Trump had claimed the matter was a “massive story.”
