Nunes: DOJ or FBI Is Leaking About Informant, So ‘Show Us the Information’

House intelligence committee chairman Devin Nunes said he still has not received "specific documents" from the Justice Department about an alleged FBI informant who reportedly met with two or three members of the Trump campaign.

“They continue to leak out things about this informant,” Nunes told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.

“And we don't know if there's one informant or more informants, because there's so much out there now, it's really getting tough to follow, and all we're asking is, give us the documentation that you used to start this investigation."

Nunes noted that the Steele dossier -- opposition research paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign -- was used to get a FISA warrant to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. "So we're trying to get to the bottom of, you know, what else was used in that FISA, because you have many people in the Department of Justice who claim that we're wrong (that the Steele dossier was the sole basis for the warrant). So, if we're wrong, show us the information,” Nunes said.

Former FBI Director Jim Comey recently told Fox News's Bret Baier that the FISA warrant did not depend solely on the unverified, salacious Steele dossier. Comey said he recollects that the FISA warrant stemmed from a "broader mosaic of facts that were laid before the FISA judge."

“Yeah, we're looking for the pieces of Mr. Comey and the FBI's mosaic," Nunes said. "We have a right to get the information, if James Comey and many others…people that are currently at the Department of Justice today continue to say there is nothing to see here. Well, if there's nothing to see here, show us the documents that we're asking for. And they refuse to do it.”

Nunes said someone at the Justice Department or FBI continues to "leak" following Nunes' and Rep. Trey Gowdy’s recent meeting at the Justice Department to discuss the documents they want to see.

"We're not going to go to another meeting where we don't get documents and then the meeting leaks out,” Nunes said. “And this should make people very suspicious. They were trying to get Mr. Gowdy and I to go on Friday to the Department of Justice for supposedly another briefing. We said, look, unless we're going to get documents -- we found out Thursday night they were not going to provide documents -- so therefore, we're not going to go.

“Now, if you look what happened on Friday night -- probably the mother of all leaks of all time to two major newspapers that came out late Friday night. Now, Had Mr. Gowdy and I went to that meeting, you can bet they would have tried to pin that on....Read More HERE
