Developing: Rep. Nunes May Go to Supreme Court Chief Justice to Get Answers on FISA Court System

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday the committee has grappled with calling in Chief Justice John Roberts of investigation of Obama officials lying to the FISA Court to spy on Donald Trump.

Nunes joined Hugh Hewitt this morning.

The Hill reported:

House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) has weighed whether it would be possible to bring Chief Justice John Roberts to “testify” before Congress as part of his investigation into political malfeasance at the Department of Justice.

In an interview with Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday, Nunes said GOP investigators had “grappled” with how to approach the courts about their
conclusion that the FBI misled a clandestine surveillance court. Roberts appoints the judges to that court.

“This is something that we have, like I said, we have thought a lot about this. And the answer is we don’t know the correct way to proceed because of the separation of powers issue,” Nunes said when asked if he would welcome a committee appearance by Roberts.
