House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes is considering the possibility of inviting Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to speak to his committee regarding systemic FISA abuse; setting the stage for a historic discussion following recent reports of widespread, anti-Trump corruption throughout the Department of Justice.
Nunes was speaking with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Thursday when he made the landmark announcement, saying he wished to speak with Roberts -who is responsible for appointing all FISA court judges- regarding his recently released memo.
“Now the chief justice appoints the FISA judges,” said Hewitt. “Have you had a chance to chat with him or any of the FISA judges about what went on at the FISA court?”
“This is something that we’ve been grappling with all through this investigation,” Nunes fired-back. “We decided that we wanted to complete the FISA abuse portion before we approached the courts. Our next step with the courts is to make them aware, if they’re not aware already, so we will be sending a letter to the court.”
