House Republicans are trying to pull out one more thing before they allow the House Intelligence Committee to change hands in January 2019.
Rep. Devin Nunes and House Republicans added a string of classified emails that belonged to former FBI Director James Comey to a list of material they want to be declassified by President Trump.
They requested this be done because it could provide the most damning evidence of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses. According to The Hill’s John Solomon, a majority of Congress has not been able to view this material for more than two years.

Just before Thanksgiving, House Republicans amended the list of documents they’d like President Trump to declassify in the Russia investigation. With little fanfare or explanation, the lawmakers led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) added a string of emails between the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to their wish list.
The email exchanges included then-FBI Director James Comey, key FBI investigators in the Russia probe and lawyers in the DOJ’s National Security Division, and they occurred in early to mid-October, before the FBI successfully secured a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The email exchanges show the FBI was aware — before it secured the now-infamous warrant — that there were intelligence community concerns about the reliability of the main evidence used to support it: the Christopher Steele dossier.
The exchanges also indicate FBI officials were aware that Steele, the former MI6 British intelligence operative then working as a confidential human source for the bureau, had contacts with news media reporters before the FISA warrant was secured.

If Rep. Adam Schiff takes charge, all of this is going to be archived for the next two years and the American people really won’t be paying attention then.
This could be a big deal. If Comey knew he was bootstrapping to get his FISA warrant, he would be shown to be an obstructionist, rather than a pursuer of justice.
