A ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Devin Nunes is making it known that he intends to send “multiple referrals on a number of different crimes” to the Justice Department as he investigates possible misconduct within the DOJ and FBI.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Nunes said, “as of now, it’ll be one criminal referral but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes.” Although he will likely be making more as he expects, “we will have some leakers in there for sure.”
Nunes also spoke on the Mueller investigation as a reason this investigation was prompted, “We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time. Basically from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
Nunes claims that he will have as many as 50 people under review, and that Attorney General William Barr will be forced to recognize the referrals. “There’ll be things in there that cannot be ignored. There will be crimes … so they have to be dealt with,” Nunes said.
