House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on his decision to release the explosive FISA memo, telling Sean the declassified document shows the FBI used “political dirt” to open a “counter-intelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign.
“I’m looking again at the memo that was sent out by Chuck Grassley today,” said Hannity. “[Comey] either handed to the court something he believes was unverified and salacious, or he gave it credibility when they got the initial FISA warrant. Which is it? Do you see a conflict there like I do?”
“I think the conflict that you’re describing -which no one on the left seems to care about or the mainstream media- is that political dirt was used by the FBI and they knew it was political dirt to open a counter-intelligence investigation into the other campaign,” said Nunes.
“I just can’t believe that people on the other side are not furious about this. I have faith in the American people. I think that the majority of Americans will ultimately make a determination that using political dirt by the FBI on the opposing campaign is a place that we won’t go,” he added.
“You said that you believed your colleagues on the other side of the aisle have leaked intelligence at least 100 times, is that true?” asked Hannity.
“Yes, we have 100 examples of leaks from our committee that we feel could only come from the other side,” Nunes fired back.

ARMAGEDDON AGAIN: Pelosi Warns of a ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS’ Over FISA Memo
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued her all-out war against the House Intelligence Committee and President Trump Friday afternoon, telling reporters the President will spark a “constitutional crisis” should he use the recently released FISA memo to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Pelosi addressed reporters just hours after Congressional leaders publicly disclosed the four-page document; showing the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ was used by the FBI and DOJ to secure FISA warrants to spy on “at least one” senior Trump aide.
“With the memo… [Trump] has abdicated his responsibilities as Commander-in Chief to protect the American people by protecting our intelligence sources and the rest,” Pelosi told CBS News.
“If the President uses this fake, horrible release of distorted intelligence as an excuse to fire [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein or [special counsel Robert] Mueller, it could lead to a constitutional crisis.”
The House Minority Leader’s fiery rhetoric comes on the heels of her official statement regarding the memo, where she bizarrely referred to the de-classified material as a “bouquet” from President Trump to Vladimir Putin.
BOOKER BREAKDOWN: Cory GOES NUCLEAR, Says Releasing FISA MEMO ‘Treasonous’
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker continued his all-out anti-Trump rampage this week, saying he believes that releasing the House Intelligence Committee’s FISA memo would be “tantamount to treason” and jeopardizes the lives of those in the intelligence community.
The liberal legislator was speaking with SiriusXM when he made the outlandish remarks, adding that GOP lawmakers who wish to release the classified material are “betraying” the men and women who work to keep our country safe.
“This fury and fire that has been created around this, is to me tantamount to a dangerous conspiracy theory that can undermine the important work our Justice Department and intelligence communities do,” said Booker.
“I might say tantamount to treasonous in the sense of -when you violate the intelligence community’s mandate around classified documentation and what should be released- you could be betraying, or especially if you’re revealing sources and methods, you are actually endangering fellow Americans in the intelligence community,” he added.
“To me, this is something that could be potentially viewed as treasonous,” said Booker.
