ongressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) has sent a criminal referral notification to Attorney General William Barr claiming “potential violations” in the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia probe, according to Fox News.
“As part of that investigation, Committee Republicans identified several potential violations of law,” Nunes wrote in a brief letter to Barr today.
Nunes and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) are prepared to brief the attorney general on their “eight criminal referrals.”
According to Fox, “The letter did not provide further details on what the referrals will allege but the congressman previously told Fox News the referrals include two for conspiracy, as well as for ‘global leaks’ and for lying, misleading or obstructing congressional investigators.”
Yesterday, Attorney General Barr testified before a Senate committee that he believed “spying” on the Trump campaign did occur.
“I think spying did occur,” he said. “The question is whether it was adequately predicated. … I think it’s my obligation. Congress is usually very concerned with intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies staying in their proper lane.”
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) recently suggested more criminal referrals are in the works.
Responding to a tweet on Monday about Nunes’ referrals, Meadows wrote, “More criminal referrals to come. And certainly more deserved. Overwhelming evidence shows multiple FBI + DOJ executives abused their power to undermine a duly elected President Trump. They will be held accountable.”
ongressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said yesterday that he will issue as many as two dozen criminal referrals to the Department of Justice relating to misconduct during the Trump-Russia investigation.
“The American people need to have confidence in the FBI and the Department of Justice. So, we are working on the referrals,” the California congressman said to Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “There’s going to be many of them. There are going to probably at least be a dozen if not two dozen individuals, and as we continue to get more information and build these and build them out, we want to make sure that everything is finished before we turn them in.”

“There are people who definitely lied and misled Congress, OK? So if they don’t go to prison we’re going to have a two-tiered…justice system in this country and it is not going to be good for the American people.”

ongressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) will send the Department of Justice his criminal referrals on several individuals connected to the investigation of the Trump campaign “in one or two weeks,” the congressman’s spokesman confirmed to the Epoch Times
The Congressman told Breitbart on March 27 that it was time to go on offense and “track down” the “dirty players” in the corrupt Trump investigation.
“We knew this was a joke from the beginning, and I’ve said as much for a long time,” Nunes said in response to the Mueller report conclusions. “Basically, from the time our report came out, which has been a year. But now, the real work begins. It’s good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to now go on offense and track down all these dirty cops and bad players.”
Nunes specified that the criminal referrals will be sent to DOJ in one letter.
“As of now, it’ll be one criminal referral, but with multiple referrals on a number of different crimes,” Nunes told Breitbart. “We will have some leakers in there, for sure.”
The Times points out that Nunes believes Attorney General Barr will act on his criminal referrals and that the Congressman told Fox News the crimes involve lying to Congress.
“There’ll be things in there that cannot be ignored. There will be crimes. So they have to be dealt with,” he said.
