A government watchdog report strongly criticizing the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is not the last word, the top Republican on the House of Representatives intelligence panel said Thursday.
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” that his committee would continue its pursuit of documents related to the probe and the counterintelligence investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Ultimately, this is all gonna spill out,” he said. “And then people are going to ask, ‘Well, what are you going to do? Who’s gonna get busted? Who’s gonna go to jail?”
Nunes expressed outrage that the report released Thursday by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (IG) contained a damning text message that had not been turned over to his committee. A previously released text message from FBI lawyer Lisa Page to lead investigator Peter Strzok expressed dismay at the possibility that Trump might win the election.
Strzok’s answer, which had not been released until Thursday’s IG report: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
