The investigation is expanding to two additional House committees…
(Zero Hedge) …In a Thursday letter to two fellow GOP chairmen, Nunes referred 15 people connected to the Russia investigation to testify in an “open setting.”
Many of those on the list are tied directly to Hillary Clinton, Fusion GPS and the infamous “Steele dossier” – a collection of 17 memos full of compromising yet unverified claims about President Trump’s ties to Russia.
The names on the list include Sidney Blumenthal, Fusion GPS founders Glenn Simpson and Thomas Catan, Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias, and former FBI agent and Feinstein staffer Daniel Jones, who is spearheading a $50 million Soros-funded effort to continue the Trump-Russia investigation with Fusion GPS and Steele.
The Steele dossier was compiled by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele on behalf of opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and was funded in part by Hillary Clinton and the DNC.
The Thursday letter to GOP House Chairmen Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte is the third sent by Nunes in recent days referring people to Congressional panels in what appears to be a massive expansion of the “SpyGate” probe into the FBI/DOJ counterintelligence operation against the Trump campaign surrounding the 2016 US election.
All together, Nunes has referred 42 people to Gowdy and Goodlatte – highlighting that the individuals likely fall under the scope of their joint task force. Moreover, he’s not about to let them wiggle out of testimony.
…These are all American citizens. They will, if they do not agree to appear under oath, and testify, then they will be subpoenaed. That I could tell you for sure…”
