"Rep. Devin Nunes announced late Wednesday that his panel, the House Intelligence Committee, appears to have reached an agreement with the Justice Department to gain access to "all" documents and witnesses it sought by a deadline at the end of the day. “After speaking to Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein this evening, I believe the House Intelligence Committee has reached an agreement with the Department of Justice that will provide the committee with access to all the documents and witnesses we have requested," Nunes, R-Calif., said in a brief statement. "The committee looks forward to receiving access to the documents over the coming days." The announcement came hours after FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with House Speaker Paul Ryan on Capitol Hill. Though a spokesperson for Ryan would not reveal the subject of the meeting, it came as Republican lawmakers demanded that that the federal agencies turn over documents to the House Intelligence panel about the Trump-Russia collusion probe."

This looks to me like Nunes is going to look for some justification to shut down the Mueller inquiry.

It's hard to say, the meeting with Paul Ryan may have had news that Nunes is part of the inquiry which will make that move difficult for him. Even Laurence Tribe, the Harvard Law Professor, was quoted as saying that Nunes is headed for jail soon.

What happens if the House committee leaks sensitive material back to the Whitehouse?

Russian Social Media Giant Gave Info on Trump Contacts to Senate Probe


Excerpt -

The Russian social media giant Vkontakte has given information to Senate investigators about contacts between an executive at the company and the Trump campaign, TPM has learned.

The Russian tech firm appears to be cooperating with the Senate Judiciary Committee by providing documents related to communication between Russian nationals and Dan Scavino, a Trump campaign staffer who now works as the White House social media director.
They want access and influence - and have no compunction about how they go about obtaining that.  It'd be prudent for us to consider that in establishing the veracity of anything that comes from them.

True, but how about the Aussies?  Their guy says that Papadopolous was talking about hacked DNC emails a month before DNC even acknowledged that they were hacked and before the supposedly debunked dossier. How did he know about the hacks, which have been attributed to the rooskies?

Before the Dems knew about the hack, the Russians did, and they blabbed to Papodopolous, who blabbed to the head Aussie spy.

Except their guy didn’t report it to his government UNTIL after the story broke.  That blows the claim that the Aussies triggered the FBI investigation.  Doesn’t explain how Papadopoulos aledgedly knew  about the hack.  Of course we do not know if he specifically addressed the hack while sharing drinks.    He just as likely could have said the Russians have dirt on Hillary.   Which was part of his game plan from the beginning.
