WATCH: Nunes calls for new criminal referral over newly revealed Stzrok texts

Appearing with Maria Bartiromo, Rep. Devin Nunes called for a new criminal referral over Peter Strzok’s newly revealed text messages.

“This is clearly lying and obstructing Congress. This is information that we asked for numerous times,” Nunes said.

“We sat in meetings with DOJ and FBI, and they sat there and stone cold said there’s no more information, there’s no more text messages.”

Nunes explained “These were the text messages that we really needed to run a proper investigation.”

He added “instead we had to go around we had to rely on informants, we had to piece all this together in order to get this out to the American people that hey, Trump campaign and Republicans were not only spied on but this was wrong.”
