Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California tried to defend his widely-debunked memo by claiming that he “saw abuses” in Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court applications.
Fox News host Bret Baier asked Nunes if he actually read the FISA applications, and Nunes admitted that he had not:
No, I did not… The agreement we made with the Department of Justice was to create a reading room and allow one member and two investigators to review the documents.
I thought the best person on our committee will be the chairman of the Oversight Committee, Trey Gowdy, because he had a long career as a federal prosecutor. They would come back with their notes and brief the rest of the committee members.
