Nunes accuses Schiff of secret coordination with anti-Trump researcher

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) lashed out at Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Friday for meeting with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that has become embroiled in the ongoing national debate about Russian efforts to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.

In an interview with Hill.TV's Buck Sexton, Nunes, the ranking Republican on Intelligence who served as the panel's chairman in the last Congress, denounced the Simpson-Schiff encounter as "very troubling," adding that the Fusion GPS executive "is at the center of our investigation" due to his connections with figures who have been involved in government investigations.

Nunes said these figures include Kremlin-connected attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya and Christopher Steele, the author of a report which claimed that future president Donald Trump was substantially compromised by the Russian government.
