Devin Nunes Locked And Loaded: 8 Criminal Referrals Ready, Including 3 Targeting 'Conspiracy' And 'Global Leaks'

Excerpt:

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., announced on Sunday he is ready to send eight criminal referrals to the Justice Department next week related to the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

"We're prepared this week to notify the attorney general that we're prepared to send those referrals over and brief him if he wishes to be briefed," Nunes said on Fox News.

The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee has been teasing a referral for months and previously predicted its delivery by the end of last week.

However, Nunes backed away from that deadline, hinting that his team of investigators found more people, potentially up to two dozen, who could be the subject of a criminal referral.

Nunes said on "Sunday Morning Futures" that the people ensnared in his eight-person referral "may not be all of them."

Nunes did not disclose any names, but he did break down three categories in which they fall.

"Five of them are what I would call straight up referrals so just referrals that are, that name someone and name the specific crimes. Those crimes are lying to Congress, misleading Congress, leaking classified information," Nunes said.

The other three, he said are more complicated, related to charges of conspiracy to lie to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

"There are three that I think are more complicated so you mentioned conspiracy. So the question on conspiracy is what, there's the conspiracy statute, and then what do they need to look at under that statute. So on the first one, is FISA abuse and other matters we believe there is a conspiracy to lie to the FISA Court, mislead the FISA court by numerous individuals that all need to be investigative and looked at," Nunes said. "The second conspiracy one is involving manipulation of intelligence. That also could [involve many] many Americans and we are, so that's kind of the second one. As you know, we've had a lot of concerns with the way intelligence was used."

The third referral Nunes called a "global leak referral."

"There are about a dozen highly sensitive classified information leaks that were given to only a few reporters over the last two and a half-plus years, so we don't know if there's actually been any leak investigations that have been open, but we do believe that we've got pretty good information and a pretty good idea of who could be behind these leaks," Nunes said. "Doesn't mean we know all the people behind the leaks because when you read these a lot of these they're always anonymous sources, and they always say something to the effect of current and former senior officials."

Nunes has looked to Attorney General William Barr to make headway toward completing an investigation begun last year by a joint GOP-led task force comprising the Judiciary Committee and the Oversight Committee. Key to this effort, which has been bolstered by intelligence panel Republicans, was investigators looking over roughly 15 transcripts of interviews conducted by the task force last year. In recent weeks, House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga., released transcripts of the private interviews of former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr, former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, and former top FBI official Bill Priestap.

Also a potential contributing factor to Nunes' efforts is the House Intelligence Committee's vote last fall to release the transcripts of more than 50 interviews it conducted in its now-completed Russia investigation, which had been submitted to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence for declassification review.

I hope all the good things said about William Barr turn out to be true and that he does do what needs to be done.

Because we sure don't need another potted plant idiot like Chris Wray, President Trump's pick to replace Comey at the FBI.

Hopefully.

There's no point in dropping the hammer on an empty chamber.

If you do, you're inviting the other guy to shoot you. :coolshades:
