House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) is next planning to investigate the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the unverified dossier on Trump, according to a new report.
Nunes will also focus on President Obama’s first CIA Director Leon Panetta, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and former Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, among others, the report said.
The first part of Nunes’ investigation revealed in a memo earlier this month that the FBI used the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page.
The second part of Nunes’ investigation will focus on the Obama State Department’s role in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign.
Reid specifically named Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, and repeated an unfounded claim from the dossier.
