Nunes is the man behind a secret Republican memo that suggests the F.B.I. and the Justice Department abused their authority to obtain a warrant to spy on a former campaign adviser to President Trump, (lying to obtain a FISA warrant). Nunes is using his position as Chairman of the Intelligence committee to obstruct its investigation by among other things to refuse to issue subpoenas to people of interest in the FBI and Justice Department, based on the argument that they are currently under investigation (by him). The Nunes Memo was created by the White House and later altered. Defense of Trump is based on a broad campaign to discredit the FBI and Department of Justice.

U.S. Representatives Mike Quigley (IL-05), who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, sent a letter to Chairman Nunes requesting formal, written responses to questions about White House involvement in the compilation of the Majority memo. During the Committee's Business Meeting on Monday, Rep. Quigley asked a series of questions about the potential role of the White House in a classified memo authored by the Majority staff, and Chairman Nunes declined to answer.
