Read Nunes’s letter to his constituents:
Rep. Nunes, a staunch Trump supporter, broke the FISAgate story wide open after spearheaded an investigation into the FBI’s plot to frame Trump in 2016.
In 2018, Nunes released a 4-page FISA memo that revealed the FISA court was misled by Comey, Sally Yates, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe.
Noted pundit Byron York said the FISA memo also revealed a key point: “The FBI’s Andrew McCabe confirmed to the committee that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.”
Nunes previously sent a dozen criminal referrals to the Justice Department concerning leaks of “highly classified material” and conspiracies to lie to Congress and the FISA court.
