Nunes: 'As Many As 10' Criminal Referrals Related To Russia Probe Are Headed To DOJ

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's entire Russia investigation was nothing more than a two-long scam that failed to give Democrats their chance to remove President Donald Trump from office.

We have learned over time that top officials in the Obama administration played a big role in anti-Trump probe -- and one lawmaker is vowing that justice will be served.

House Intelligence Committee ranking Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said he and his Republican colleagues will be sending more criminal referrals to Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice, the Washington Examiner reported.

Nunes made the announcement during an interview on Fox Business, where he said Republicans have gathered enough evidence for “at least another five, possibly as many as 10” referrals to the DOJ in addition to the eight referrals made last spring.

“We now are looking at the overall Gen. Flynn investigation and how that was conducted and the rest of the Mueller team,” he said, according to the Examiner. “And then, of course, as new information has come to light from the information that was declassified by acting Director of National Intelligence [Richard] Grenell, that information has also shown that there are other people who have lied or misled Congress or have, I think in some cases, maybe, lied by omission, documents that were kept from Congress.”

Nunes said that he expects to send the referrals within days.

Last month, Nunes said criminal referrals are coming for members of Mueller's team who investigated Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"We're looking at doing criminal referrals on the Mueller team, the Mueller dossier team, the Mueller witch hunt, whatever you want to call it. That's where we are now in our investigation," Nunes said.

Now, in the wake of the Justice Department's decision to drop charges against former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn, Nunes is turning his attention to the conduct of Mueller and his team.

"We’ve also expanded our investigation into the Mueller team and everything that happened with Mueller and the people at DOJ and FBI that were above Mueller. And so, we will be making criminal referrals in the coming weeks against the Mueller team. We're just now putting that together and, of course, as always, waiting on more documents that we really need to come out," Nunes said.

Having examined witness reports and other new documents released by the FBI, Republicans now claim to have evidence that Mueller’s team misled the courts during their investigation.

This comes as the recently released FISA spy report found that FBI officials had falsified documents for the FISA court so they had a better chance of securing warrants to spy on members of the Trump campaign, such as aide Carter Page.

In part, the IG report found that there was extreme bias against then-candidate Trump and that the FBI deliberately doctored evidence they presented to the nation’s top spy court in order to gain authority to spy on a key Trump affiliate.
