Congressman Devin Nunes spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night regarding the now-debunked ‘Steele Dossier,’ saying President Trump should confront British Prime Minister Theresa May over her government’s potential role in the dodgy material.
“Congressman, let’s talk about the letter. Is there any possibility in your mind that it might’ve been people in our intelligence community that outsourced illegal intelligence gathering to our allies?” asked Hannity.
“I think we can be sure about one thing. On foreign soil, someone was running operations against Trump campaign people. We don’t know if that was our government, the British government, or some kind of firm that was doing it,” said Nunes.
“It’s definitely a fact that on British soil there were activities going on that we need to get to the bottom of… The President is heading to London in the coming weeks. I think we need to get some answers,” he added.
Nunes’ comments come as a game of “finger pointing” is currently rocking the Deep State.
A major dispute between senior DOJ officials erupted this week over whether former FBI director James Comey or CIA director John Brennon “pushed” the now-debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ ahead of the 2016 election.
“A high-level dispute over which senior government officials pushed the unverified Steele dossier amid efforts to surveil the Trump campaign has broken out into the open again, after it emerged that Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the FBI and DOJ’s actions were ‘lawful and appropriate,’” reports Fox News.
“Sources familiar with the records told Fox News that a late-2016 email chain indicated then-FBI Director James Comey told bureau subordinates that then-CIA Director John Brennan insisted the dossier be included in the intelligence community assessment on Russian interference, known as the ICA,” adds the article.
“Former Director Brennan, along with former [Director of National Intelligence] James Clapper, are the ones who opposed James Comey’s recommendation that the Steele Dossier be included in the intelligence report,” said one official familiar with the dispute.
Senator Rand Paul made national headlines last March when he confirmed that Brennon “insisted” on using the “unverified and fake” dossier.
BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report… Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

DEMOCRATS PANIC: Nunes Says FISA MEMO Only ‘PHASE ONE,’ Eyes Hillary’s STATE DEPT.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes raised alarm bells within Democratic circles on Monday, saying his decision to release the bombshell FISA memo was just “phase one” in his efforts to get to the bottom of anti-Trump abuse throughout the federal government.
Nunes was speaking with Fox News when he outlined his vision for the next stage of the Committee’s investigation into widespread abuse at the FBI, Department of Justice, and beyond; adding he plans to “follow the facts where they lead.”
“What we will do in phase two is follow the facts where they lead, and when we get enough facts, we will figure out a way to let the American people know,” he told Fox & Friends.
“Phase one of our investigation was getting to the FISA abuse. What we’re looking at now is the State Department and some of the irregularities there,” he added.
Nunes’ comments come months after Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed his Department of Justice was investigating “certain issues” inside former President Barack Obama’s State Department; including Hillary’s Uranium One deal and possible “pay-to-play” arrangements between the State Department and Clinton Foundation.
DEVIN NUNES: Expect ‘Criminal Referrals’ from GOP’s Probe into FBI Political Bias
Rep. Devin Nunes confirmed Wednesday that he intends to make “criminal referrals” from his ongoing probe into political-bias and abuse at the Department of Justice and the FBI.
Nunes was speaking with Fox News this week when he was asked to comment on his investigation into allegations of anti-Trump bias throughout the agency both during and immediately after the 2016 presidential election.
“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are,” Nunes said. “Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”
Nunes launched the probe after widespread allegations the agency used the debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.
