2016 ELECTION/INTELLIGENCE/RUSSIA/DEVIN NUNES: “Democrats are plotting their next move after questioning House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ fitness to lead the panel’s investigation into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
One step they almost certainly won’t take: a boycott.
Even as they ramp up calls for an outside investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow, Democrats say it would not make sense for them to walk away from the House probe led by Nunes, the California Republican many now view as a lackey for Trump.
If Democrats boycotted the investigation, they say, they would risk losing access to the evidence being turned over to the intelligence panel — giving Republicans complete control over how that evidence is presented to the public.”
