Andrea Mitchell: ‘Devin Nunes Has Been an Embarrassment to His Colleagues’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” MSNBC host and NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) “has been an embarrassment to his colleagues” on both sides of the aisle.

Mitchell said, “Devin Nunes has been an embarrassment to his colleagues, Republican and Democratic. He was in the transition. He went to the White House with a completely fraudulent claim about the Obama administration national security team, which was discredited, disproved by the Ethics Committee. And yet, he is asserting himself here and challenging what a FISA judge had renewed involving an intercept that picked up, collaterally, a Trump campaign aide, not an important aide, but a campaign aide, who was picked up talking to a man convicted of spying for Russia — a Russian.”
