Nunes: No Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion, But ‘Clear Links’ Between Clinton Campaign & Russians


House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) appeared on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning to sound off on his committee’s report that it found “no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

“We need to get our FBI and our intelligence agencies working on real problems and get them away from what they’re doing now, which is, it looks likes spinning in circles,” Nunes said. “We spent 14 months on this investigation, looking for collusion. We didn’t find any.”

Brian Kilmeade noted that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, said the committee’s conclusion is a “tragic milestone” for Congress and it represents another “capitulation” to the executive branch.

Nunes accused Schiff and other Democrats of trying to rewrite history and engage in personal attacks because they have failed to find clear evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russians.

“They’ve said that numerous times, probably hundreds of times, nearly all of them. Yet they never produce their collusion to our committee. So we have interviewed all these folks. We can’t find any collusion. And that’s where we stand now,” Nunes said.

He added that they found “clear links” between the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russians, but no one seems to care about that.

“The more that you look at this, the more it is pretty obvious that you have one side that plays by one set of rules, and Republicans are held to a different set of standards,” Nunes said.

He previously said the FBI should have opened a counterintelligence investigation of Clinton’s campaign in 2016, which indirectly funded the anti-Trump dossier compiled by a former British spy.
