House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-CA) took a dig at Democrats and reporters in the room while questioning acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on Thursday.

“Well I appreciate you being here. Have fun — be careful what you say because they’re going to use these words against you,” he said.

“Well, I tell you what, ranking member, either way I’m honored to be here and I’m honored to be leading the intelligence community.”

Nunes then thanked Maguire for his service to the country and said he hoped next time they talked it would be “behind closed doors like this is supposed to be done.”
