Interesting timing no doubt after Nunes’ press conference this morning…
“The lack of a leak investigation is quite concerning. We need to make sure that these leaks are being tracked down…There are just questions that we have for Dir. Comey and Adm. Rogers probably that they couldn’t answer in a public setting…”
What happens next?
