Devin Nunes must be removed from Russia probe

Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ attacks against the integrity of the Mueller investigation are a shameful partisan stunt. He must be removed from participating in the Russia investigation so we can get the answers we deserve.

Why is this important?

The House Intelligence Committee just voted along party lines to release the so-called “Nunes memo” -- a document drafted at the direction of the committee’s chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA). Many who have seen the memo say it gets basic facts wrong, cherrypicks information and has absolutely zero credibility.

This memo is just the latest in a long string of attempts by Republicans in Congress to undermine and smear Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Donald Trump and Russian election meddling. It’s especially telling that during last night’s partisan vote, Committee Republicans blocked release of the Democratic members’ memo which rebuts Nunes' claims.

We cannot afford to let this become a partisan fight -- our democracy was attacked and Americans deserve the full truth. We can't allow Devin Nunes to continue spreading unfounded innuendo about the Russia probe to undermine its credibility as Mueller investigates the President for obstruction of justice.

Please speak out and pressure Speaker Paul Ryan to remove Nunes from participating in the Russia investigation.
