Nunes Urges Schiff to Accept the IG’s Findings on FBI FISA Abuses: ‘You Are in Need of Rehabilitation’

Nunes Urges Schiff to Accept the IG’s Findings on FBI FISA Abuses: ‘You Are in Need of Rehabilitation’Ranking House Intelligence Committee Republican Devin Nunes rebuked committee chairman Adam Schiff in a Sunday letter, telling Schiff he is "in need of rehabilitation" if he is to fully accept the Justice Department's inspector general report detailing the FISA abuses committed by the FBI during their Russia probe."After publishing false conclusions of such enormity on a topic directly within this committee's oversight responsibilities, it is clear you are in need of rehabilitation, and I hope this letter will serve as the first step in that vital process," Nunes wrote in a Sunday letter.After originally dismissing Nunes's concerns about the warrant process, Schiff admitted that the FBI committed significant errors in its application to the FISA court to surveil Trump-campaign adviser Carter Page."FBI and DOJ officials did not 'abuse' the [FISA] process, omit material information, or subvert this vital tool to spy on the Trump campaign," Schiff wrote in a memo last year, adding a claim that the warrant applications "made only narrow use of information from Steele's sources."However, the inspector general's report documented 17 "significant errors and omissions" in the process and said the FBI failed to inform the FISA court about the partisan origins of the Steele dossier, which they also failed to independently corroborate.On Sunday, Schiff said he "certainly accepts" that "the inspector general found things that we didn't know 2 years ago."Nunes commended Schiff for that acknowledgement, calling it "a valuable first step—a baby step, but a step nonetheless—in your rehabilitation.""As part of your rehabilitation, it's crucial that you admit you have a problem—you are hijacking the Intelligence Committee for political purposes while excusing and covering up intelligence agency abuses," Nunes wrote. "Rehabilitation will be a long, arduous process."The intelligence committee held an impeachment hearing last week and the lower chamber is expected to hold a full House vote this week to impeach President Trump over accusations that he engaged in a quid pro quo involving temporarily withheld U.S. military aid to Ukraine. Trump is accused of witholding the aid to coerce Ukrainian officials to announce the opening of a corruption investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Canadian police release findings of report into murders of three tourists

Canadian police release findings of report into murders of three touristsTwo dead Canadian teens who were the subject of an intense manhunt this summer confessed to the murders of three tourists in northern Canada in a series of videos, but did not reveal a motive behind their actions or indicate remorse, Canadian police said on Friday. The bodies of Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, and Kam McLeod, 19, were found on Aug. 7 after a two week-long search that began in northern British Columbia and ended in the remote and hostile terrain of northern Manitoba, three provinces and several thousand kilometers (miles) away. The pair were first reported as missing after leaving their hometown of Port Alberni, British Columbia, in search of work.

Democrats subpoena ex-White House counsel Don McGahn in wake of Mueller report findings

Democrats subpoena ex-White House counsel Don McGahn in wake of Mueller report findingsThe chairman of the House judiciary committee has subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to force him to publicly testify next month, in the latest fallout following the release of the Mueller report.Representative Jerry Nadler, described Mr McGahn as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the special counsel’s report”.Several other top allies to Donald Trump are expected to be subpoenaed to testify before Congress in addition to Mr McGahn, who stepped down from his post in October.“The special counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Mr Nadler said.He continued: “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.”Mr Nadler’s subpoena requests that Mr McGahn appear before the committee on 21 May, with a deadline of 7 May to provide documents to the judiciary committee related to Mr Mueller’s investigation.The subpoena comes as Democrats have wrestled with the fallout of the Mueller report, and whether they should pursue impeachment against the president in light of the multiple concerning details in the report.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is among those in the Democratic caucus who have urged patience in the process, and on Monday wrote to fellow Democrats, suggesting they allow investigations in Congress to establish a factual basis for impeachment before they begin talking on the subject.Mr McGahn’s “testimony will help shed further light on the President’s attacks on the rule of law, and his attempts to cover up those actions by lying to the American people and requesting others do the same”, Mr Nadler said.
