As the house investigation continues to appear corrupted and manipulate by the administration, the White house issued a statement saying that it will no longer accept question about a possible Trump/Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election. 

In April House Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes recused himself from heading the committee’s investigation into the election plot.  The decision was made after pressure from Democrats stemming from a secret visit to the White House to view classified documents.  Democrats assumed that he would d stay away from anything related to the Trump/Russia affair. 

Recent it has come to light that Nunes has maintained involvement into the investigation.  He said on Thursday, “Simply put, I’m still the chairman of the committee,” Nunes said. “The way to look into this is that I’m still read into everything, but ... I was going to set at least the Russia side of the investigation aside because I didn't want to be the face of this investigation. But everything else, I’m still in charge of. … Especially the unmasking.”

Ranking democrat Rep. Adam Schiff(D-Burbank) said on corporate TV Thursday that the committee’s rules state the chairman has to sign subpoenas unless he delegates the authority to someone else.   During the interview he said, “That authority should have been delegated to Mike Conaway in consultation with myself. That hasn't happened yet, and I think that’s a violation of the recusal by the chairman.”

As more Washington corruption surfaces Vladmir Putin said, that the State of Russia didn't hack the election but It could have been a private Russian hacker that has allegiance to Russia responsible.  In the face of all this the White House is not taking questions from the media.
