Nunes Goes Hard Against Schiff in NASTY Letter Blasting House Intel Chair

As the impeachment train continues to roll forward, there are a number of head to head match-ups worth keeping an eye on.

Given just how diametrically opposed the two sides of the aisle are on the subject itself, a number of politicians have found themselves squaring up to scrap over the proper path forward in regard to President Trump.

Of these conflicts, perhaps none is as vociferous as that between House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and ranking member Devin Nunes.  Over the weekend their beef was ratcheted up several notches.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes blasted committee Chairman Adam Schiff for what he called an “alarming” and “blatant disregard” for the rules governing the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump, saying Schiff transmitted his investigative findings to the Judiciary Committee for the next phase in the proceedings without consulting him.

Fox News exclusively obtained the letter Nunes, R-Calif., sent to Schiff, D-Calif., on Sunday night. In the letter dated Friday, Nunes wrote that Schiff chose not to consult with him so that he could meet a “bogus” deadline for impeaching the president. The GOP congressman also accused the Democrat of having a “vendetta” against the president.

“I write in objection to your December 6, 2019 transfer of additional records and other materials relating to the Democrats’ partisan impeachment inquiry to the House Committee on the Judiciary,” Nunes wrote.

He went on to cite the rules governing the impeachment inquiry, passed in the House in October, which stated that “the chair of the Permanent Select Committee or the chair of any other committee having custody of records or other materials relating to the inquiry referenced in the first section of this resolution is authorized, in consultation with the ranking minority member, to transfer such records or materials to the Committee on the Judiciary.”

Nunes has been busy as of late, having recently filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN after they published a story stating that the Republican Representative traveled to Europe to engage in an investigation meant to behoove President Trump’s political interests.
