GOP push to release House interviews in Russia investigation

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House intelligence committee chairman says he plans to release the transcripts of dozens of interviews conducted in private during its investigation into Russia election meddling.

Republican Rep. Devin Nunes (NOO’-nehs) of California also says he’ll push the director of national intelligence to declassify others.

He tells Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that he thinks “full transparency is in order here.”

His goal is to make the transcripts available in the next few weeks.

Just months ago, the GOP colleague who led the committee’s investigation said such a release could have a “chilling impact” on testimony in future inquiries.
