Clinton Investigations: Real this time?

Devin Nunes Refers Hillary Dirty Tricks Hatchet Man Sidney Blumenthal, Others Tied to Phony, Dirty Trump Dossier for Testimony

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., sent another letter Thursday — his third in a week — to two fellow GOP chairmen, referring to them 15 people connected to the Russia investigation for testimony in an "open setting."

Many of the individuals on the list, sent to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., are tied to Hillary Clinton and the infamous Trump dossier, which contains compromising, yet unverified claims about President Trump's ties to Russia. Compiled in 2016, the research effort was conducted by ex-British spy Christopher Steele and was funded in part by Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Glenn Simpson and Thomas Catan, co-founders of Fusion GPS, the opposition research company that commissioned Steele, are included on the list. Also mentioned is Nellie Ohr, wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, whom Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee alleged in a February memo "was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump." Ohr, who according to the GOP memo delivered his wife's research to the FBI, was demoted from his role as associate deputy attorney general late last year after it was discovered he had secret meetings with Simpson and Steele.

Nunes has led an inquiry looking into the genesis of the federal Russia investigation as well as alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on at least one member of the Trump campaign, all the while being panned by his Democratic colleagues. For instance, last week Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN that Nunes was one of the "the four horsemen of this apocalypse," along with Gowdy and Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, for their effort to push the DOJ to submit materials "that can be leaked or fed or misrepresented, like the infamous Nunes memorandum, in the service of the president."

Devin Nunes calls for House probe of 42 Obama-era anti-Trump activists

Rep. Devin Nunes is referring 42 Obama administration officials, FBI agents and outside political activists to a House task force for an investigation into how the Obama Justice Department targeted the Donald Trump campaign.

If the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and Judiciary Committee agree, their task force would conduct the most extensive probe to date on anti-Trump government operations in 2016.

Mr. Nunes, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, has sent letters to Oversight head Trey Gowdy of South Carolina and Judiciary’s Bob Goodlatte of Virginia.

The California Republican is asking his fellow GOP legislators to summon for public testimony all 42 — a cast of FBI, Justice Department and State Department officials and outside anti-Trump people with whom they communicated.

Last year, amid a probe into Russian election interference, Mr. Nunes veered from the Trump collusion narrative. His new inquiry was sparked by indications that a piece of evidence driving the FBI probe — the Democratic Party-financed dossier — was unverified and at worst a hoax.
