In Friday’s press conference regarding the surveillance of President Trump, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes announced that he will be calling FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael S Rogers back in a closed session for questions Comey “probably couldn’t answer in public.”
House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes had four announcements in regards to the panel’s investigation into the Obama administration’s supposed surveillance of Donald Trump’s transition team.
First, Nunes and ranking committee member Rep. Adam Schiff agreed that the FBI will brief the entire panel on the counterintelligence investigation, instead of just the two of them.
Second, he noted he has asked FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael S. Rogers to appear in closed session, postponing their next public hearing.
Asked if the committee is meeting with Comey in a closed session because he was not fully forthcoming at Monday’s hearing, Nunes said there were questions he “probably couldn’t answer in public session.”
Nunes also told reporters he was not calling Comey back based on documents he’s seen.
As for the Obama intelligence officials’ surveillance, “it looks like it was all legal” and Trump’s wiretap claim is just a claim.
