2016 ELECTION/INTELLIGENCE/RUSSIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The House Intelligence Committee chairman and the panel’s top Democrat publicly disagreed Friday [3-24-17] over the handling of their investigation into Russian meddling into the US election, coming after the announcement that President Donald Trump’s campaign chairman agreed to testify before the committee.
‘Yesterday, the counsel for Paul Manafort contacted the committee yesterday to offer the committee the opportunity to interview his client,’ committee chairman Devin Nunes announced during a news conference. ‘We thank Mr. Manafort for volunteering and encourage others with knowledge of these issues to voluntarily interview with the committee.’
Nunes also announced that the committee is bringing in FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers for a second briefing, this time behind closed doors so that they can provide more information. The committee is also delaying its March 28 hearing, a decision infuriating Democrats on the committee.”
