Wall may be built in House Intel Committee as atmosphere ‘absolute poison

Rep. Tom RooneyThomas (Tom) Joseph RooneyHouse Intel votes to release Dem countermemo Several lawmakers have seen intelligence behind Nunes memo Fierce battle erupts over releasing intelligence report MORE (R-Fla.) told CBS that the relationship and trust between Republicans and Democrats on the committee is "poison", but strongly denied knowing about the wall.

CBS News reported Thursday that Nunes' latest project appears to be the construction of a literal wall to separate Republican and Democratic staff members within the committee's designated secure areas.

"The problem with this whole committee and the investigation itself", House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Thomas Rooney (R-FL) told the Post, arguing "in a normal world", the committee would have interviewed permanent witnesses to their surveillance concerns.

The Nunes memo was compiled by Republican staffers on the House Intelligence Committee and alleges improper surveillance by the Justice Department and FBI as part of the investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 election. Other Republicans seem to be flat-out mortified by Nunes' shovel-ready infrastructure plan.

"We do support our troops, but I think most troops would tell you they would rather be taken care of than march to the president's tune down Pennsylvania Avenue", Swalwell said.

It's expected to happen this spring.

The report about the wall comes amid the increasingly volatile environment over the released GOP surveillance memo and the still unreleased Democratic countermemo. "This would be a very destructive decision".

Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) has also dismissed the House GOP's approach, telling reporters "I don't think there was any need for a memo to be released", according to CNN.

The Republican-drafted four-page memo contained allegations that Justice Department officials approved a surveillance warrant against Page based on information from a dossier that alleged ties between Trump and Russian Federation.

The site says it is paid for by Nunes' campaign committee, and the congressman has shared some CARepublican posts on his Facebook page.

"I don't like partisan memos", said Sen. That divide was laid bare last week by the release of Nunes' partisan memo that purports to show the Federal Bureau of Investigation abused the FISA system to secure a warrant to extend surveillance of a President Donald Trump campaign aide.
