Democrats Call For Independent Probe Of Russian Ties
“Thank Goodness We Have One, Known As FBI” | Democrats Call For Independent Probe Of Russian Ties
California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee reiterated his call for an independent committee to probe Russian ties with the Donald Trump campaign. He appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday maintaining his earlier stand.
“There are enough questions that have now been called, that have been raised where I think the establishment of a commission would give the country a lot of confidence that at least one body was doing this in a way that was completely removed from any political considerations.’’
This comes after Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee; briefed President Trump at the White House after seeing documents that according to him identified some members of the Trump transition team caught on random surveillance.
The top Democrat tweeted early Sunday “The events of this week only underscore need for an independent commission to conduct its own Russia investigation, along with Congress.”
On the other hand, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee is dismissing Rep. Adam Schiff’s call for an independent committee saying “Thank goodness we have one — it’s called the FBI,” he said on “Face the Nation.”
“It doesn’t get any more independent than that…Let Congress do its job, which is provide oversight over the intelligence community” He said on Sunday.
Gowdy also defended Nunes’ meeting President Trump. “If that’s a big deal in Washington, then we’ve sunk to a new low. So if the commander-in-chief cannot be briefed by the chairperson of the House Intel Committee on a matter that has nothing to do with the FBI investigation then I don’t know what they can talk about.”
