Devin Nunes won't say if he got foreign info meant to damage Biden - CNNPolitics - 2020-07-31
(CNN) Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee , declined to say at a closed-door meeting this week whether he had received foreign information meant to damage former Vice President Joe Biden, according to a transcript released by the committee on Thursday.
The information in question pertained to packets reportedly sent to GOP members of Congress, including Nunes, by Ukranian lawmaker Andrii Derkach -- who has worked closely with President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani played a key role in the effort to pressure the Ukrainian government to publicly announce an investigation into the former vice president, an effort that led to the President's impeachment and subsequent acquittal.
But facing questioning from Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, Nunes declined to respond.
