House Republicans are still working to obtain justice in the Trump–Russia collusion hoax.
This week, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, revealed that he and his Republican colleagues will be sending more criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Washington Examiner reports.
Nunes promises referrals
Nunes made the announcement during an interview on Fox Business on Thursday — but while expressing a desire to “get it right,” Nunes didn’t offer specific details of what is coming.
The congressman did, however, say that he and his colleagues have gathered enough evidence for “at least another five, possibly as many as 10” referrals to the DOJ in addition to the eight referrals made last spring, as the Examiner noted.
Nunes then spoke a bit about what he and his colleagues have been investigating, which in turn might hint at who may be included in the aforementioned criminal referrals.
“We now are looking at the overall Gen. Flynn investigation and how that was conducted and the rest of the Mueller team,” he said, according to the Examiner. “And then, of course, as new information has come to light from the information that was declassified by acting Director of National Intelligence [Richard] Grenell, that information has also shown that there are other people who have lied or misled Congress or have, I think in some cases, maybe, lied by omission, documents that were kept from Congress.”
Nunes said that he expects to send the referrals within days, according to the Examiner.
More to come
While House Republicans are still digging deep into the attempted coup against a duly elected president, they have the distinct disadvantage of not being the majority party in their respective chamber. Republicans do, however, hold control of the Senate, where additional probes related to the Russia collusion hoax are currently underway, as The Washington Post notes.
One such investigation is being conducted in the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is chairman. The other is taking place in the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) at the helm.
Just this week, in fact, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee gave Johnson the authority to issue subpoenas in that review, the Examiner reported separately. Graham is seeking similar authorization in his committee.
There is also great anticipation with regard to the investigation that is being led by Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, with many hoping that accountability for “Deep State” corruption is finally obtained.
Justice may, at long last, be on the way.
