Nunes was a major player on the Trump Transition Team. [View all]

The surveillance being discussed was performed during the transition period.

Conversations among Trump team members were likely intercepted. Rep. Nunes would likely have been one of them.

Theoretically, today it was leaked to Nunes that, not only were the Trump transition team all caught red-handed via this surveillance, but that the surveillance was ongoing, and therefore the Trump Team cover-up is also currently being documented by the FBI et al.

He freaked, and ran to Trump.

My question is, if Nunes is himself a target of the FBI investigation of Trump Team collusion with Russia, wouldn't he be forced by the rules to recuse himself? Is there a mechanism whereby Congress may remove a member from a committee in which he has a vested interest to sabotage?

We need this man removed from his Chair. I wonder if the House rules allow for replacement; if they do not, the balance shifts to the Democrats within the committee.

A special prosecutor investigation would likely linger for months. God knows the damage a Felon in Chief could rain on America and the world during that period. If a true, bipartisan Congressional investigation is achievable (and with as many rats on the ship as it appears the Republicans have infested us with, that's a big if), it would be preferable to the alternative.
