According to Congressman Devin Nunes, House Republicans are advancing their investigation into alleged political bias in the Mueller probe.

In an interview Monday, Nunes said a joint GOP task force from several committees is reviewing documents from the investigation. He said House Republicans are considering making criminal referrals to the Department of Justice over the alleged political motives behind the Russia probe.

This comes just ahead of the highly-anticipated report from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Nunes also weighed in on the likely outcome of the investigation.

“They’re not gonna find any Russian collusion — they tend to use lots of innuendo in their indictments so far, which is, unfortunately, I think is unbecoming of professionals,” he stated. “But as we’ve known from the very beginning, once the Mueller team was stacked with hard partisans, that was bad enough.”

Nunes suggested the Republican task force may have evidence of anti-Trump biases at the Obama-era Department of Justice that initiated the Russia probe.
