House Republicans boycott public Intelligence panel hearing
By Olivia Beaver - 02/12/20 11:40 AM EST

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee boycotted a subcommittee hearing Wednesday, in a sign that the panel's partisan clashes during the impeachment inquiry are festering even after that chapter has come to a close.

In a letter explaining their decision to skip the hearing, Republicans blasted Democrats for not examining the issue of surveillance abuse after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report detailing significant abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act by intelligence community officials. The abuses were related to wiretap applications for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“Despite the seriousness of these issues and our clear jurisdiction, you have failed to hold a single briefing or hearing on this matter,” the Republicans wrote.

The letter was signed by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the full panel, and other GOP members.
