Democrats have called for an independent investigation following reports that Nunes and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr reached out to reporters regarding Russian Federation on behalf of the White House. "At this point, the director was not willing to do that". The next step is for the American people to turn on the power of our elected officials to start an independent and transparent investigation of just how close the Trump campaign was or was not to Moscow. He continued, "We need to know if anyone in the Trump campaign had any direct conversations with someone from Russian Federation".

"I would say at this point we know less than a fraction of what the Federal Bureau of Investigation knows..."

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee is blasting the Federal Bureau of Investigation for holding back information, saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation director is revealing only a "fraction" about what he knows about Russian Federation. The same committee that is now investigating the Russian connections alongside-but apparently not with the full cooperation of-the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

House Intelligence members signed off on the agreement Monday evening, setting the boundaries for a high-profile look into the Trump administration's connections to Russian officials during the campaign.

Nunes said that he had no reason to believe the FBI would withhold any information needed for the committee's investigation, and he added that he not aware of any evidence that Trump associates had been in contact with Russian officials.
