Devin Nunes: John Brennan’s ‘Story Doesn't Quite Add Up'
U.S. Attorney John Durham interviewed the Obama-era official on Friday
Former CIA Director John Brennan's story about Russia will soon come to light after U.S. Attorney John Durham interviewed the Obama-era official as part of his inquires.
Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, reacted to the news on Sunday saying the former CIA chief's story "doesn't quite add up."
"His story doesn't quite add up," Nunes told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News.
"So, hopefully, Durham was able to get him on the record, so that he could explain his testimony when he testified in front of our committee."
On Friday, Durham's team interviewed Brennan for eight hours at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia
Brennan was told he is not a "subject or a target" of a criminal investigation, according to a statement released by a former staffer.
Nunes said Brennan testified to Congress that he held information about Trump associates communicating with Russians in 2016, but his claims had no evidence and were only found in "fake" dossiers.
"How did Brennan have that information?" Nunes asked.
"Who gave him that information? There's no track record of it at the CIA or anywhere else," he added.

"He claims that he gave some of this to the FBI," Nunes said.
In May, Brennan sais he was willing to talk with investigators because he had "nothing to hide."
Brennan claimed that President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr deceived the American people by mischaracterizing what has happened in the past.
“John Durham, who is a well-respected individual from the Department of Justice…is conducting this investigation," Brennan said at the time.
"I guess this investigation, and looking at what happened during those last months of the Obama administration and the first year or two of the Trump administration," Brennan continued.
"I’d like to think that John Durham and the other DOJ and FBI investigators will continue to honor their oath of office and to carry out their responsibilities without any consideration of [the] political interests of Donald Trump," he added.
Last week, Attorney General Bill Barr said "significant developments" in the ongoing Durham Probe were about to be made public.
