NUNES: We have now expanded our investigation, full-blown investigation, into the Brookings Institute. And it really centers on two issues. One is the IRS. This is a tax-exempt organization. They’re supposed to stay out of politics. They clearly have not done that. They have obstructed our investigation with propaganda for the last four years.
It’s well-known that they have attacked our investigation for four years through this kind of phony legal group of fact-checkers that they set up. So, we need to look at their — see if they have been involved in politics.
Secondly, they also take foreign money from foreign countries and foreign governments. And we need to know what foreign governments were involved in this, because were they acting on behalf of a foreign power?
Everybody questioned for all this time, you know, the Trump campaign and Republicans were involved with Russians. Well, who was the Brookings Institute — who were their foreign donors? And are they doing all of this not just to help the Democratic Party, but also any foreign government?
