Kushner, taking new White House role, faces rare scrutiny

Kushner, taking new White House role, faces rare scrutiny

On Monday, several Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, called for Nunes to step down as the head of the House Intelligence Committee.

Amid growing pushback on his handling of that investigation.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said, technically, the White House didn't stop her testimony.

"If the president puts Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that's a Russian connection", he suggested. "At some point April you have to take no for an answer with respect to whether or not there was collusion".

Nunes has said he sees no reason to step aside from the investigation, and House Speaker Paul Ryan has expressed confidence in him. "We have a responsibility to do this investigation". Q - Are you gonna recuse yourself from the investigation sir?

Mr. Nunes blundered when he informed the White House about some information he received without first telling committee Democrats.

Jim Hines, a Democratic representative and a member of the House Intelligence Committee, accused Nunes of ceasing his duties as chairman of the committee and "running interference for the Trump White House" by cancelling the hearings in a recent interview with The New Yorker.

Both the House and Senate intelligence committees are pursuing their own inquiries, while FBI Director James Comey has his own probe into whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Nunes argues he had to review classified, executive branch documents from a secure facility at the White House because the reports had not been provided to Congress and could not be transported to the secure facilities used by the House intelligence committee.

"Chairman Nunes is falling down on the job and seems to be more interested in protecting the president than in seeking the truth". He said Tuesday that he will "never" reveal sources or methods to fellow committee members but that he still hopes to share the documents.

McCain: "Absolutely, I can't imagine why not".

Nunes dismissed accusations he has been intentionally delaying his committee's investigation.

As acting attorney general, Yates played a key part in the investigation surrounding Flynn, who was ousted after revelations that he had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the United States. But of those who did, almost 9 in 10 (88 percent) said Russian Federation helped elect President Donald Trump and 83 percent said it hurt his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

O'Neil then wrote his letter to the White House, insisting any claim of executive privilege had been waived "as a result of the multiple public comments of current senior White House officials describing the January 2017 communications".

"Wouldn't have been the way I would've done things, but I don't know whether that means he has to recuse himself", Christie said on "Good Morning America" today. Such information is supposed to be "minimized" and not widely shared so innocent Americans are protected if they happen to speak to a foreigner who is surveilled. "We have no problem with her testifying, plain and simple".

Yates, along with former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, had agreed to testify publicly before the House intelligence committee.

But that hearing was scrapped by Nunes.

The White House has denied taking any action to prevent that testimony.
