Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Breitbart News over the weekend that Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is trying to use the committee to investigate President Donald Trump’s use of federal resources to control and stop the riots in several major cities like Portland and Chicago.
Nunes said Schiff is perverting the purpose of the committee, which is supposed to look into threats from other countries like China and North Korea as well as provide oversight for the country’s intelligence agencies.
“The irony of all of that is the House Intelligence Committee is supposed to be bipartisan,” Nunes lamented, adding that Democrats somehow managed to use the committee to impeach the president.
Nunes said he was present at the D.C. riot where Sen. Rand Paul and others were surrounded, screamed at and threatened while leaving Trump’s acceptance speech on the South Lawn of the White House.
“We are damn lucky that no one was killed,” he said. “That was really, really close to somebody being killed.” And if something doesn’t happen to change how the media is reporting the riots, he said, “more people are going to get killed.”
