The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes has hinted that there may be more memos coming beside the one the committee released on Friday, outlining alleged abuses by the FBI in obtaining FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election. Specifically, Nunes suggested the focus of the committee may now be the State Department.
“Yes, this completes just the FISA abuse portion of our investigation,” Nunes said. “We are in the middle of what I call ‘phase two’ of our investigation, which involved other departments. Specifically the State Department and some of the involvement they had in this.”
Nunes said that any future memos will likely follow a more traditional process of release. The memo released Friday contained classified information that the FBI, as well as the DOJ, was not forthcoming with according to Nunes, necessitating the circumstances surrounding its release.
“This was phase one. That resulted with a memo designed to go public. There’s no plans of additional classified information that would come forward through the same…process. The investigation is ongoing, I’m not sure anything would necessitate that,” Nunes said,
