Devin Nunes Just Admitted He Didn't Even Review The Details Of His Own Memo

Devin Nunes, of the House Intelligence Committee, released a highly charged memo alleging that "politically motivated material was used to petition the government for a warrant to [surveil] an American citizen."

However, despite his position as the majority head on the committee, Nunes reportedly did not see fit to review the evidence surrounding his major claim.

“No, I didn’t,” Nunes told Fox News’s Bret Baier, when asked if he saw the evidence himself.

"The chairman never bothered to go read these underlying materials," said Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday. "After months and months of making this argument that the FBI and DOJ are involved in some sort of conspiracy, he didn't even bother to read the materials himself."  

Up until this interview with Baier, Nunes waved away these claims as "bogus".

This adds up to more smoke and mirrors by the GOP to halt the Russia investigation against the President.  However, the tactic is slowly backfiring.
