Nunes offers apology to Democrats on surveillance revelations

According to numerous news reports, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee ,Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) apologized to Democratic members of the panel for going public and to the White House before briefing them about information he said he obtained about surveillance of President Donald Trump’s team.

Many committee Democrats were angered by Nunes’ handling of the critical news. However, the lawmaker claimed in his apology that he promises to be more transparent in working with the panel going forward.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats are requesting an “outside, nonpartisan commission” in the wake of Nunes’ actions on Wednesday which raised concerns.

Pelosi even deemed Nunes a “stooge for the president of the United States.”

The panel’s ability to credibly investigate potential connections between Trump associates and Russia are now in question, specifically with Nunes’ implied alliance to Trump, according to a committee spokesman.
