(Before It's News)

On Tuesday, the House Intelligence Committee plans to reveal the scope of its investigation into the Russian hacking before the 2016 election, which many feel was an attempt to sway the election in Donald Trump’s favor.

“We will have a statement we will put out on that today,” said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., adding a public report will likely follow.

Nunes, along with House Speaker Paul Ryan have both said that based on the evidence they’ve seen, to date, there is no evidence to back up claims of election tampering, but that they will continue to probe, so that “no stone is left unturned.”

According to Nunes, the planned probe “will be all-encompassing… to do a full-blown investigation of before and after with all the election activity.”

Nunes said it will be conducted separately from a Senate Intelligence Committee probe.

“At the end of the day I assume we are going to have things to present to the American people,” Nunes said.

The investigation is to include who is leaking information from the White House to the press, including transcripts of the conversation between former national security adviser Michael Flynn and a Russian ambassador.

They’re also trying to decide who to question, since, Nunes says, the intelligence community has not provided them with proof of contact between Russia and anyone working for a political campaign.

“We would bring anybody in if we had evidence, but we are not going to bring anybody in without evidence of any kind and my guess is it doesn’t exist because of what I’ve been presented so far,” Nunes said.

Nunes said if new evidence surfaces that he had not been given, “then we are going to have a problem with the agencies who are withholding information from Congress.”

I’m going to assume he’s talking about the intelligence community, since their report has been somewhat different than that of Nunes and Ryan.

I guess we’re going to have to stand by for this one.
