Fox News host Maria Bartiromo interviewed Rep. Devin Nunes regarding the latest findings of the House Intelligence Committee. Bartiromo was clearly not prepared for the bombshell Nunes dropped, as it relates to the spying of the Trump campaign by Barack Obama’s DOJ.
Bartiromo explained to her viewers that Nunes told her four weeks ago that the House Intelligence Committee was waiting for the electronic communications to understand how the investigation into the Trump campaign’s collusion with Russians began. Nunes then explained how
Nunes: “This is really important to us because the intelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens. So, we’ve long wanted to know what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation. So what we found now after the investigators have reviewed it is, in fact, there was no intelligence. So we have a traditional partnership with what’s called the Five Eyes Agreement.”
Bartiromo: “Mr. Chairman you’ve got to explain what you just said. I think this is extraordinary. That you’re telling us that in order for the FBI, the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into so-called collusion between President Trump and the Russians there was no official intelligence used. Then how did this investigation start? I don’t understand sir, please explain.”
Nunes responded: “This is even more critical. What was this about? This was about a counter-intelligence investigation, that was, at the height of a political campaign, where you opened up an investigation, using these intelligence services to spy on another campaign. It’s really serious stuff.
Bartiromo then asked Nunes if Hillary was the one pulling the strings? “So, you’re investigating the State Department. Does that mean it was Hillary Clinton pulling the strings? I mean, here you have Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State, shes the other candidate, is she pulling the strings on her opponent, her political opponent, Donald Trump?” Bartiromo asked.
Watch, as Nunes explains:
