Nunes: Task force combing through transcripts for criminal referrals

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., says a cadre of House Intelligence Committee Republicans are now involved in sifting through more than a dozen transcripts as they consider making criminal referrals for an investigation into alleged political bias in the FBI.

Furthering the work begun by a joint GOP task force comprised of the Judiciary Committee and the Oversight Committee, which last year was headed by now-retired Chairmen Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.; and Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., Nunes said the effort is getting a second wind.

"We will be continuing that task force, except that the House Intelligence Committee Republicans will be involved," Nunes, who is the ranking member of the panel, said in an interview with the Hill.TV that aired Monday.

"A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are," Nunes said during an interview on Fox News last week. "Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don't have gavels, we don't have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals."
