Heidi Nunes-Tucker

It's hard not to be angry. It's confusing why anybody would want to hurt anybody like that. Why would you want to hurt strangers? Why would you want to hurt anybody?feedback

Cris Cyborg

Since Holly Holm fought for the 145-pound belt, I believe it would be a good fight. The fans would like it. She's a striker; she likes standup, I like standup. Why not? It could be my next fight. I know she's up there for the 135-pound belt. Maybe if she fights for it, or wins the belt – though I believe it stays with Amanda [Nunes]. If that opportunity comes up, it's a fight that I think all fans would like to watch.feedback

Adam Schiff

When someone says they're going to recuse themselves or step aside from the investigation, you have to expect that they're not going to insist on having final approval over subpoenas. [They're] one of the most important tools of an investigation.feedback

Brad Sherman

Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump's campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia. It now seems likely that the president had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of national security advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute obstruction of justice. I am introducing Articles of Impeachment to begin a long process to protect our country from abuse of power, obstruction of justice and impulsive, ignorant incompetence.feedback

Valentina Shevchenko

During the last three months of training, I did everything to be in my best shape for this fight. Nunes couldn't cut weight correctly and was hospitalized. She wanted to cut weight and recover rapidly to have the advantage. The end result, everything went wrong. Even though she was medically cleared to fight, she backed out. ... I did my part and am very upset that I can't fight for the title today on this great event.feedback

Amanda Nunes

I beat her already. Nothing's going to change it. The only thing that's going to change is that this is going to be over Saturday – because I will beat her clean. [Whether] I knock her out, submit her, go five rounds, I will clean this, to get over this.feedback

Amanda Nunes

The way I stay focused is only to think about my next fight. Lots of people won and lost this belt, but I already won it and I kept it in my first fight as the champion. I feel like I can do this longer if I work hard. I think I'm going to be champion for a long time.feedback

Yoel Romero

I am part of the new generation of mixed martial arts where you must mix everything up. It's not wrestling, it's not striking and it's not grappling. It's mixed martial arts. Here, you must dance around like wolves. You have to dance, and you have to do it well.feedback

Robert Whittaker

I give him the respect he deserves. He's been at the top of the food chain for a long time, and I'm excited for what's going to happen.feedback

Valentina Shevchenko

If that bout was one minute more, maybe the result would be different. This time, I will have more time.feedback

Amanda Nunes

After this fight everything can happen. I've cleaned out the (Women's Bantamweight) division already. I beat all the top (fighters) before I got the belt. Then when I got the belt, I beat the best one. After the next fight, for sure I'm going to try to do something else. Maybe go down, (maybe) go up.feedback

Travis Browne

My personal life is better than it's ever been. Being with somebody who understands the game, being with somebody who's there to support you as a partner in life instead of being that person who draws that energy out of you ... I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for that. I'd be pretty low in my career right now, so having that personal backing has made all the difference in the world.feedback

Hillary Clinton

This notion that there are these politically motivated unmaskings is just nonsense.feedback

AshLee Strong

While Mr. Conaway leads the Russia investigation, Mr. Nunes remains the chairman of the Intel Committee and has the right and responsibility to conduct oversight of the intelligence community, especially as it relates to the potential misuse of intelligence agencies against Americans.feedback

Fred Wertheimer - The Trump Organization

This is an incredibly inappropriate action, and it is a matter that the House Ethics Committee must look at promptly. Nunes is supposed to be completely out of the Russia investigation. It looks like once again he is acting as a puppet for the administration.feedback

Devin Nunes

The big story is the 'unmasking and surveillance' of people that took place during the Obama Administration. Seeing a lot of fake news from media elites and others who have no interest in violations of Americans' civil liberties via unmaskings.feedback

Lawrence Douglas

The announcement that Robert Mueller III, the former FBI director, will oversee the Russian probe strengthens the spreading sense that Donald Trump is finished. The “presumption of regularity.” It is a term largely unfamiliar to those outside legal or governmental circles but one that all Americans should now learn. Born of centuries-old common law, the presumption stands for the idea that government officials are presumed to act lawfully and in proper discharge their office – absent evidence to the contrary.feedback

Sarah Posner

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said today that the Committee’s investigation of Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion with it is “back on track” after its controversial chairman, California Republican Devin Nunes, recused himself from the probe. Schiff’s remarks are a hopeful sign that the Committee will finally be able to constructively take on its oversight role.feedback

Devin Nunes

I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee's Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter. I will continue to fulfill all my other responsibilities as Committee Chairman, and I am requesting to speak to the Ethics Committee at the earliest possible opportunity in order to expedite the dismissal of these false claims.feedback

Adam Schiff

There was a cloud hanging over us after the White House incident. The important work of investigating the Russian involvement in our election never subsided, but we have a fresh opportunity to move forward in the unified and nonpartisan way that an investigation of this seriousness demands.feedback

Bryson B. Morgan

It's a way of taking control. It is the black box of congressional ethics investigations. You just don't know what you're going to get.feedback

Mike Conaway

Harry Reid and the Democrats brought in Mexican soap opera stars, singers and entertainers who had immense influence in those communities into Las Vegas, to entertain, get out the vote and so forth. Those are foreign actors, foreign people, influencing the vote in Nevada. You don't hear the Democrats screaming and saying one word about that. Sure it is, it's foreign influence. If we're worried about foreign influence, let's have the whole story. It worked really well in Nevada, as you see. Those folks are monster in the Hispanic community. They hold great sway.feedback

Paul Ryan

He continues to have that trust, and I know he is eager to demonstrate to the Ethics Committee that he has followed all proper guidelines and laws. In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision.feedback

Paul Waldman

A month ago, Rep. Devin Nunes was a semi-anonymous member of the House of Representatives, with no national profile and little to distinguish him from his 434 colleagues. But today, he’s the most visible manifestation of the the comprehensive and at times comical effort by the administration, Republicans in Congress, and the conservative media to protect Donald Trump. And it all happened because of a couple of inane and false tweets the president sent.feedback

James Comey - FBI

It's based on more than that, but part of it ... is the logic. Whoever the Red Raiders are playing, you want the Red Raiders to win. By definition, you want their opponents to lose. They're inseparable. It's a two-person event. Logically, when he wanted her to lose. Those are foreign actors, foreign people, influencing the vote in Nevada. You don't hear the Democrats screaming and saying one word about that.feedback

Adam Schiff

He did so in the best interests of the committee and I respect that decision. The important work of investigating the Russian involvement in our election never subsided, but we have a fresh opportunity to move forward in the unified and nonpartisan way that an investigation of this seriousness demands.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

President Trump’s wild accusation and the right-wing media’s eagerness to support the claims of the Trump White House, working in cahoots with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), that there was nefarious “unmasking” of Trump associates picked up in surveillance of Russian officials has proved to be a colossal flop. Nunes wound up discrediting himself and implicating White House staffers in a half-baked scheme to deflect attention from the president.feedback

Paul Ryan

In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision. Chairman Mike Conaway, a senior member of the Committee, will now lead this investigation in the House. I am confident that he will oversee a professional investigation into Russia's actions and follow the facts wherever they lead.feedback

Devin Nunes

Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the improper unmasking of the identities US citizens and other abuses of power.feedback

Mike Conaway

Those are foreign actors, foreign people, influencing the vote in Nevada. You don't hear the Democrats screaming and saying one word about that. I mean the logic is that because he really didn't like president – the candidate Clinton – that he automatically liked Trump. That assessment's based on what? There was a taint to that march that just cut me to the core. Women carrying signs and wearing costumes in the foulest, nastiest, crudest, crassest manner possible, talking about female body parts.feedback

Sean Spicer

I know that she's supposed to make comments to a host in a few minutes to minimize this, but it is interesting because she was the one who went out and said she quote 'had nothing to do with this' on a program a few weeks ago and now…. I think it's not for me to decide who should testify or how they should do it, but I do think that there is a sharp contrast between a few weeks ago when she was very public in saying she 'didn't have any clue what Chairman Nunes was talking about' and yet now we are finding out that she's trying to figure out some friendly way of discussing this.feedback

John Oliver

That initially sounded like it could back up Trump's claims that President Obama wiretapped him. But it quickly unraveled as Nunes conceded the surveillance was routine appeared to be completely legal, occurred after the election and may not have even targeted Trump or his transition team but rather foreign individuals discussing the transition.feedback

John Oliver

Devin took what appears to be an unnecessary trip to tell what appears to be unimportant news to what may have been the source of the news itself, . So what Nunes brought to light has turned out to be a bunch of smoke and mirrors as convoluted as it is pointless. Truly, it is the Now You See Me of revelations. But wait, because Stupid Watergate found a way to get even stupider. Because the surveillance Nunes was studying concerned the Trump transition team, of which one member was, you guessed it, Devin f---ing Nunes.feedback

Lindsey Graham

If I have to, I will vote to change the rules because I am not going to allow President Trump to be denied the same opportunity that every president has had for 200 years because you're mad, and you can't accept the outcome of an election.feedback

John McCain

The fact is that we know for a fact the Russians tried to change the outcome of our election, attacking the very fundamental of democracy. We know they did that. We need to know how, we need to know why, and most of all we need to know what to do to prevent this kind of activity, which they continue to carry on in free nations around the world. If we're really going to get to the bottom of these things, it's got to be done in a bipartisan fashion. And as far as I could tell, Congressman Nunes killed that.feedback

Sean Spicer

Yes, it is appropriate for a member of Congress to contact someone who contacted him. As Chairman Nunes said himself, he was not hiding or roaming. He was asked to come over here by an individual. He came over, which happens daily.feedback

George Takei

Well, I guess the jig is up. With what is going on now in the country, I couldn't stand by any longer merely as a citizen. I knew I had to take a bigger stand. So that's why I'm running for Congress. My hope is to challenge Devin Nunes for his seat in 2018.feedback

Lindsey Graham

You know, Flynn said himself, If you want immunity, you must, you know, be guilty.feedback

Lindsey Graham

We're going to talk about the Flynn deal. It's getting weirder by the day, isn't it? Yeah. Let's see what kind of business dealings he had. So, when issues arise, about people around the campaign or in the Trump administration have deals that don't sound right or look right, we'll look at it.feedback

George Takei

I think Nunes is vulnerable. And I plan to prove that. People are tired of his ass-kissing of Trump. Can I say that? I think I can. These days you can say pretty much anything and not get in trouble.feedback

George Takei

With what is going on now in the country, I couldn't stand by any longer merely as a citizen. I knew I had to take a bigger stand. So that's why I'm running for Congress. My hope is to challenge Davin Nunes for his seat in 2018.feedback

Devin Nunes

This is something that I've known about for a very long time. There were people that probably knew about this, knew about me being there, but the fact of the matter is that doesn't make them the source of my information.feedback

Devin Nunes

I did use the White House to help to confirm what I already knew from other sources.feedback

Jack Langer

HPSCI had a preliminary conversation with Michael Flynn's lawyer about arranging for Flynn to speak to the Committee. The discussions did not include immunity or other possible conditions for his appearance.feedback

Peter King - Homeland Security

There were telephone conversations apparently between foreigners, the surveillance of those conversations was very legitimate.feedback

Devin Nunes

There's been one crime that has been committed, and that is the leaking of someone's name.feedback

Michael Flynn

He is now the target of unsubstantiated public demands by Members of Congress and other political critics that he be criminally investigated. No reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution.feedback

Sean Spicer

We are willing to provide them with information that we have, the materials that we have come across, and I think that is an important step. I cannot get into who those individuals were.feedback

Jack Langer

As he's stated many times, Chairman Nunes will not confirm or deny speculation about his source's identity, and he will not respond to speculation from anonymous sources.feedback

Sarah Posner

A blockbuster scoop in today’s New York Times reports that two White House officials helped House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes access intelligence reports showing that President Donald Trump and his associates were subject to “incidental collection” as U.S. intelligence agencies conducted routine foreign surveillance.feedback

Devin Nunes

That his source was not a White House staffer and was an intelligence official.feedback

James Downie

The spotlight has yet to dim on Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). The House Intelligence Committee chairman’s every move is under ever-more intense scrutiny, and with good reason: Between his quasi-covert meeting with a still-unnamed source at the White House, briefing the president (and the media) before other committee members and suddenly canceling scheduled hearings with witnesses who seem quite eager to testify, Nunes could hardly be doing a better job of convincing skeptics that something is being covered up. The latest blow came Wednesday, when FBI Director James B. Comey said Nunes had never invited him to testify again to the committee, as the latter had claimed. But as weirdly compelling as Nunes’s floundering has been, it has somewhat obscured another important scandal that Trump critics must remember to keep tied to Russia investigations: the president’s tax returns.feedback

Ted Yoho

You have to keep in mind who [Nunes] works for. He works for the president and answers to the president.feedback

David Ignatius

President Trump has been trying since early March to deflect the FBI and congressional investigations of Russian covert action by arguing that he had been a victim of improper U.S. surveillance. His argument got little traction until last week, when Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) made the case for him.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes. If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes.feedback

Eric Swalwell

No future hearings for the Russia investigation are on the books.feedback

Devin Nunes

The president needs to know that these intelligence reports are out there, and I have a duty to tell him that.feedback

Sean Spicer

I can't say 100 percent that I know anything what he briefed him on. What I can tell you through his public comments is that he has said that he had multiple sources that he came to a conclusion on. So to the degree to which any of those sources weighed on the ultimate outcome of what he came to a decision on, I don't know. And that's something that, frankly, I don't even know that he discussed with the president.feedback

Ryan Lizza - The New Yorker

The White House clearly indicated to me that it knew Nunes would highlight this issue.feedback

Sarah Posner

New signs of increased pressure on House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes are emerging that could complicate his efforts to prevent a serious investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Yet most Republicans are still standing by him. What will it take to change this?feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The House Intelligence Committee’s probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, including potential ties between the Trump team and the Kremlin, is effectively on hold, after its chairman said the panel would not interview more witnesses until two intelligence chiefs return to Capitol Hill for a still-unscheduled private briefing.feedback

Devin Nunes

We're beginning to figure out who's actually serious about the investigation. Because it appears like the Democrats aren't really serious about this investigation. I mean, we always want to keep the committee bipartisan. But at the end of the day, we're going to do an investigation with or without them, and if they want to participate, that's fine, but the facts of the matter are pretty clear.feedback

Seth Meyers

Steve Carell stars as a bumbling congressman turned spy in the new comedy High Nunes. The Dude and Trump have a lot in common. They both have bathrobes, both obsessed with their rugs and they both love White Russians.feedback

Devin Nunes

The investigation continues. We don't have networked access to these kinds of reports in Congress.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

The chair of the House Intelligence [Commitee] has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the country. Chairman Nunes's discredited behavior has tarnished that office. [House] Speaker [Paul] Ryan must insist that Chairman Nunes at least recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation immediately. That leadership is long overdue.feedback

Current and former national security officials described Nunes's trip to the White House complex, apparently late in the evening after he had slipped away from his staff, as highly unusual. Doing so would ordinarily require Nunes and the person he met with to have been cleared in advance and accompanied by an escort – requirements that seemed to undercut White House claims to have no information about the encounter.feedback

Devin Nunes

Neither Chairman Nunes nor any Intelligence Committee staff members had any communication with the White House whatsoever about Sally Yates testifying to the Committee. The only person the Committee has spoken to about her appearing before the Committee has been her lawyer. The Committee asked her to testify on our own accord and we still intend to have her speak to us.feedback

Sean Spicer

If you look at the president's tweet, he said very clearly, quote, wiretapping' – in quotes.feedback

Lindsey Graham

If he's not willing to tell the Democrats and Republicans on the committee who he met with and what he was told, then I think he's lost his ability to lead. Well I think he put his objectivity in question at the very least. I think he has to repair the damage … but as to whether he should step down, I'll leave that to the House leadership.feedback

Paul Waldman

Is trying to cover for the Trump administration in the ever-widening Russia scandal, he’s doing an absolutely terrible job of it. In fact, Nunes is acting as though he’s trying to convince everyone he’s staging a coverup. In the latest development, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has canceled all the committee’s meetings for this week amid calls for him to recuse himself from the investigation - which have come from, among others, the ranking minority member on the committee, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.).feedback

Lindsey Graham

If he's not willing to the tell the Democrats and Republicans on the committee who he met with and what he was told, then I think he's lost his ability to lead. My belief is the House is off track and probably can't get back on track. The problem that he's created is he's gone off on a lark by himself, sort of an Inspector Clouseau investigation here. The only way this thing can be repaired is he tells his colleagues on the House intel committee who he met with and what he saw and let them look at the same information.feedback

Jim Himes

So not only has this investigation sort of had a shadow cast over it, but the committee has been put into suspended animation. At this point, there is really one thing that needs to happen to rescue this investigation and that Chairman Nunes needs to recuse himself. Unless he recuses himself from this investigation, it is hard to imagine how it can go forward.feedback

Adam Schiff

This is not a recommendation I make lightly, as the chairman and I have worked together well for several years. But in much the same way that the attorney general was forced to recuse himself from the Russia investigation after failing to inform the Senate of his meetings with Russian officials, I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president's campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman.feedback

Adam Schiff

Whether the documents support the argument that names were improperly unmasked or distributed, it is impossible to judge, but one thing is very clear: There was no legitimate justification for bringing that information to the White House instead of the committee.feedback

Eric Swalwell

It's time for Devin Nunes to leave this investigation, let alone lead it. He should be gone. This is what a cover-up to a crime looks like. We're watching it play out right now.feedback

Devin Nunes

I say nice things about people. I know sometimes I say things that I probably shouldn't.feedback

Devin Nunes

If I really wanted to, I could have snuck on to the grounds late at night and probably nobody would have seen me, but I wasn't trying to hide. I'm sure that the Democrats do want me to quit, because they know that I'm quite effective at getting to the bottom of things.feedback

Devin Nunes

It was a judgment call on my part. Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the wrong decision.feedback

Devin Nunes

The intelligence committee - that's a committee that I call the tip of the spear, because without national security it's tough to keep those trade routes open. There seems to me to be some level of surveillance activity, perhaps legal, but I don't know that it's right.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Nunes "has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the Country. Chairman Nunes' discredited behavior has tarnished that office.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

The Chair of the House Intelligence has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the country. Chairman Nunes' discredited behavior has tarnished that office. (House) Speaker (Paul) Ryan must insist that Chairman Nunes at least recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation immediately. That leadership is long overdue.feedback

Jackie Speier

I'm asking for him to step down in the interest of our integrity. If you become a White House whisperer, you are not independent.feedback

Sean Spicer

We encouraged them to go ahead. That's the story. I hope she testifies. I look forward to it. If they choose to move forward, great.feedback

AshLee Strong

Speaker Ryan has full confidence that Chairman Nunes is conducting a thorough, fair, and credible investigation.feedback

Richard Ledgett - National Security Agency

This is a challenge to the foundations of our democracy. . . . The idea that another nation state is interfering with that] is a pretty big deal and something we need to figure out. How do we counter that? How do we identify that it's happening - in real time as opposed to after the fact? And what do we do as a nation to make it stop?feedback

Adam Schiff

After much consideration, and in light of the Chairman's admission that he met with his source of information at the White House, I believe that the Chairman should recuse himself from any further involvement in the Russia investigation, as well as any involvement in oversight of matters pertaining to any incidental collection of the Trump transition, as he was also a key member of the transition team. I believe the public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the President's campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the Chairman.feedback

Sean Spicer

I don't know what he actually briefed the president on, but I don't know why he would come up to brief the president on something that we gave him. I don't know why he would brief the Speaker and then come down here to brief us on something that we would have briefed him on. It doesn't really seem to make a ton of sense. So I'm not aware of it, but it doesn't really pass the smell test.feedback

Jack Langer

Chairman Nunes met with his source at the White House grounds in order to have proximity to a secure location where he could view the information provided by the source. Because of classification rules, the source could not simply put the documents in a backpack and walk them over to the House Intelligence Committee space. The White House grounds was the best location to safeguard the proper chain of custody and classification of these documents, so the chairman could view them in a legal way.feedback

Jack Langer

Chairman [Devin] Nunes met with his source at the White House grounds in order to have proximity to a secure location where he could view the information provided by the source. The Chairman is extremely concerned by the possible improper unmasking of names of U.S. citizens, and he began looking into this issue even before President Trump tweeted his assertion that (Trump Tower) had been wiretapped.feedback

Sean Spicer

I know that Chairman Nunes has confirmed that he was on White House grounds Tuesday and, frankly, any questions regarding who he met with or why he was here should be referred to him. All of what I know has been available through public comments. I don't know that that make sense. I don't know why he would travel – brief the speaker, then come down here to brief us on something that – that we would've briefed him on. It doesn't really seem to make a ton of sense. So, I'm not aware of it. But it doesn't really pass the smell test.feedback

Justine Sarver

This isn't how democracy works. You don't get to pick and choose when you like a process and when you don't.feedback

Sean Spicer

I don't know what [Nunes] briefed the president on, but I don't know why he would brief the president on something that [Trump] gave him. It doesn't seem to make a ton of sense.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Chairman Nunes is falling down on the job and seems to be more interested in protecting the president than seeking the truth. You cannot have the person in charge of an impartial investigation be partial to one side. It's an inherent contradiction. If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes. There has always been a good tradition of bipartisanship on the intelligence committees. When the members go into the SKIF…they check their partisanship at the door. Chairman Nunes is right on the edge of doing great damage to that tradition.feedback

Adam Schiff

If we issue a report where Democrats find one thing and Republicans find another, both sides retreat to their respective corners and nothing gets revealed.feedback

Norm Ornstein

I guess you could say I was gobsmacked by this. The integrity of the system is built on the independence of Congress from any investigation involving the executive branch. I just think this is so far over the line you can't even see the line anymore.feedback

Sean Spicer

I can't say 100% that I know anything. Anything is possible.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was on his way to an event in Washington late Tuesday when the evening’s plans abruptly changed. After taking a brief phone call, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) swapped cars and slipped away from his staff, congressional officials said. He appears to have used that unaccounted-for stretch of time to review classified intelligence files brought to his attention by sources he has said he will not name.feedback

Mike Rogers

It sows distrust, it shows they don't have a good working foundation for really hard things. Everybody wants to find what they want to find to affirm their political position. That's no way to run an investigation.feedback

John Brennan

There is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature and intent of Russian interference.feedback

Sean Spicer

I don't know where he got the documents from, so I can't say anything more than I don't know.feedback

Tom Cole

Loyalty can sometimes make you, you know, go a step too far. I'm pretty heartened that [Nunes] recognized that within 24 hours and moved to change it.feedback

Tom Cole

He is loyal to his friends. And if they're in a fight, he's going to be on your side in the fight.feedback

Devin Nunes

We want to clarify press reports that the CIA has a new assessment that it has not shared with us.feedback

Jack Langer

He said he'll have to get all the documents he requested from the (intelligence community) about this before he knows for sure.feedback

Adam Schiff

There must have been a very strong push back from the White House about the nature of Monday's hearing. It's hard for me to come to any other conclusion about why an agreed-upon hearing would be suddenly cancelled. Clearly it had to do with the events of this week. [Nunes] himself said the cancellation had nothing to do with these documents that he saw, so we know that was not the issue. What other explanation can there be? There really is none when the witnesses are ready and available.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Will he finally learn this time? “House Intelligence Committee Democrats said Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) apologized to them Thursday during a closed-door meeting for his handling of revelations about surveillance that potentially could have been collected about President Trump and his associates during the transition period.”.feedback

Devin Nunes

I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show the president elect and his team were at least monitored and disseminated out. We know there was not a physical wiretap of Trump Tower.feedback

Devin Nunes

Yes, he apologised to the minority on the committee today for going public and to the (White House) with his announcement yesterday before sharing the information with the minority. He pledged to work with them on this issue and share information with them about it. There was a lot going on yesterday and it was a judgment call on my part. At the end of the day, sometimes you make the right decisions and sometimes you make the wrong ones but you've got to stick by the decisions you make.feedback

Eric Swalwell

Before we go forward, we really need to see what evidence did the chairman take over to the president, how did he get that evidence and why exactly did he go around our committee. We haven't seen that yet. We have been told that that is coming soon.feedback

Adam Schiff

In my conversation late this afternoon, the chairman informed me that most of the names in the intercepted communications were in fact masked, but that he could still figure out the probable identity of the parties. This does not indicate that there was any flaw in the procedures followed by the intelligence agencies. Moreover, the unmasking of a U.S. person's name is fully appropriate when it is necessary to understand the context of collected foreign intelligence information.feedback

Sarah Posner

Rep. Devin Nunes, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, has reportedly apologized to Committee members after his highly unorthodox visit to the White House yesterday to share with President Trump his unsubstantiated charge that U.S. intelligence agencies spied on the Trump team and possibly even the president-elect himself during the transition period. Rep. Jackie Speier, a Democratic member of the Committee, told CNN this morning that it was not clear, precisely, what Nunes was sorry for, saying that Nunes apologized only “in a generic way.”.feedback

Eric Swalwell

He told me to do everything we could in how we wrote the bill to make Republicans comfortable as they can be to come on board.feedback

Chuck Schumer

Certainly gives the appearance, if not the reality, of a lack of impartiality.feedback

Jim Himes

I guess this is going to help Donald Trump and his people sleep a little better tonight.feedback

Devin Nunes

I mean, there was a lot going on yesterday and it was a judgment call on my part ... at the end of the day, sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the wrong one, but you've got to stick by the decisions you make.feedback

Devin Nunes

The president didn't invite me over, I called down there and invited myself because I thought he needed to understand what I saw and that he needed to try to get that information because he has every right to see it. It was a judgment call on my part. At the end of day, sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make the wrong one – but you got to stick by the decisions you make.feedback

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday accused U.S. spy agencies of abusing their surveillance powers by gathering and sharing information about President Trump and his transition team, an unproven charge that was quickly embraced by the White House but threatened to derail the committee’s investigation of possible Trump campaign ties to Russia.feedback

Adam Schiff

[Nunes'] actions simply raise enormous doubt about whether the committee can do its work, and I think that more than anything else I've seen, this makes the most profound case for the formation of an independent commission. The chairman will need to decide whether he is the chairman of an independent investigation into conduct which includes allegations of potential coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russians, or if he's going to act as a surrogate of the White House, because he cannot do both.feedback

Eric Swalwell

He betrayed the independence that our committee must show to get to the bottom of what happened with Russia's interference in our elections. He should have come to the committee first. He never under any circumstances should have gone to the president, whose campaign is under federal criminal and counterintelligence investigations.feedback

Adam Schiff

This information should have been shared with members of the committee, but it has not been. Indeed it appears that committee members only learned about this when [Nunes] discussed the matter this afternoon with the press. [Nunes] also shared this information with the White House before providing it to the committee, another profound irregularity, given that the matter is currently under investigation. I have expressed my grave concerns with [Nunes] that a credible investigation cannot be conducted this way.feedback

Devin Nunes

This is information that was brought to me that I thought the president needed to know about incidental collection.feedback

Sean Spicer

When Devin Nunes came out and said there was no connection that he saw to Russia – crickets. Where was your passion and where was your concern when they all said that there was no connection to Russia?feedback

Devin Nunes

No, there was no FISA warrant that I'm aware of to tap Trump Tower. We know a law has been broken and we need to get to the bottom of it. I'm not asking for any profile. Everything we do around here is really important. I wouldn't put one in front of the other. The intelligence committee – that's a committee that I call the tip of the spear, because without national security it's tough to keep those trade routes open.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

The statement by Chairman Nunes today really raises questions about stonewalling in my view.feedback

Larry Kudlow

To renegotiate this into some kind of border adjustment, which will penalize imports and subsidize exports, that is an exercise in government planning and complexity that I believe is doomed to fail. And if you stay with this, congressman, the whole corporate tax reform thing – the most important pro-growth measure – goes down the drain over this.feedback

Devin Nunes

I think this is a very simple way to border-adjust. It's not a VAT (value-added tax). It's not a sales tax. It's not a tariff. We want to have business taxes completely revamped in this country because we want to encourage people to invest in the economy so that jobs can be created. We can get out of debt financing and into equity financing, so it's a plan that will really make America great again.feedback

Henrique Meirelles

The Congress reflects Brazilian society. My evaluation is that the society is mature enough to accept significant adjustment measures. What is not possible, in everybody's experience, is to continue as we are.feedback
