Lawmaker's 'peculiar midnight run' endangers Trump-Russia inquiry

The House intelligence committee investigation of the Trump campaign’s alleged links with Moscow looks in danger of unravelling as a result of the unexplained behaviour of its chairman, Devin Nunes, a former Trump adviser.

Such behaviour reportedly includes an unexplained disappearance from an Uber ride with a staffer on Tuesday night, described by his Democratic counterpart as a “peculiar midnight run”.

The investigation subsequently appeared to stall, with Nunes calling off a critical hearing scheduled for Tuesday 28 March, at a time when his Democratic counterpart on the committee, Adam Schiff, said he had seen more than circumstantial evidence of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia.

At an extraordinary committee hearing last Monday, the FBI director, James Comey, confirmed for the first time that the bureau was investigating Trump associates for possible collusion with Moscow.

1. Not sure I agree it endangers the inquiry.

Nunes' actions last week helped to point out he is NOT objective.
The Dems already knew this.

And there is the Senate Intell. Comm hearing coming up, which promises to have more support for serious inquiry.

Plus a number of FBI and even CIA investigations.

Plus the Dems are organizing around a way to get to impeachment.
