Devin Nunes, White House Intelligence Committee Chairman, said on Monday that lawmakers should not begin a McCarthy-style investigation based on a couple of news reports from the media. He then continued to explain by asserting that he has not seen any evidence that the Trump campaign has had any contact with Russian officials. He actively inquired after evidence and says, so far, there is none to be found. He does not know who the New York Times’ anonymous sources are, but he has not found any hints of interaction between the workers of Trump’s campaign and Russian intelligence officials.
From Washington Times:
“We still don’t have any evidence of them talking to Russians,” Mr. Nunes said as he briefed reporters. “As of right now, the initial inquiries I’ve made to the appropriate agencies, I don’t have any evidence.” He said he’s interested in evidence, but it doesn’t appear the investigative agencies have it. The New York Times, citing anonymous U.S. officials, reported earlier this month that Trump campaign aides had “repeated” contacts with Russian intelligence, based on “phone records and intercepted calls.”
