Jonathan Turley Praises Nunes for Document Push

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley welcomed the aggressiveness of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., in pursuing documents relating to the FBI’s alleged informant in the Donald Trump presidential campaign.

“For years many of us have been arguing that these committees needed to get into real oversight,” Turley told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program Monday.

“They’ve been viewed as paper tigers for decades. Nunes is the first chairman who’s been this aggressive – and frankly for those of us who believe we need greater oversight, that’s a good change.”

Nunes, in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, has said the records should be given to committee members. Nunes has given the Justice Department until Tuesday to provide access to the documents to all committee members, according to Fox News.

And Turley said: “The FBI and DOJ have a long and checkered history of classifying things that are embarrassing. I don’t know what’s going to come out of this. It may ultimately be a great yawn. But the important thing is that the American people need, on both sides — the Trump investigation and this investigation — to see the facts.

“The public needs to see what the facts are. It’s gotten to the point where the public needs to see this material and reach our own conclusion.”
