House Intel Dems Stymied By Delay In Republicans Assigning Members

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have been raring to go since January 16, antsy to start launching probes into President Donald Trump’s contacts with Russia.

However, their eagerness is being stymied by sluggish Republicans who have still not named members except one—Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) as ranking member—to the committee, according to a Saturday Daily Beast report.

No committee business can commence until the members are all selected. Democrats are reportedly hopeful that Republicans will announce their roster next week.
