Watch: House Intelligence Chair Nunes gives updates on Russia investigation

Share

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes will speak Wednesday about the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The California Republican, an ally of President Donald Trump, publicly addresses the probe following FBI Director James Comey's confirmation this week that the FBI is investigating Moscow's interference as part of its "counterintelligence mission." The probe includes looking into any possible links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Comey repeatedly sidestepped questions about whether any Americans, including people associated with the Trump campaign, are targeted in the investigation. The White House contended this week that "nothing has changed" following Comey's statements, maintaining that Trump campaign associates did not collude with Russia.

Trump, Nunes and other Republicans have focused largely on wanting to find people within the government who leaked information, like the contents of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's phone calls. The revelations about those calls contributed to his resignation last month.
