House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes accused the FBI of “drastically” deviating from standard operations by refusing to give the Trump campaign a defensive briefing on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

As an example, the California Republican pointed out that Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was briefed amid concerns that one of her staff members was possibly working as a Chinese spy.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Providing a defensive briefing, like the one given to Sen. Feinstein, is a typical response to these kinds of situations,” Nunes said in a statement to Fox News. “The refusal to give the Trump campaign a defensive briefing, and instead opening a sprawling counterintelligence investigation of American citizens, is one of many alarming ways that intelligence leaders drastically diverged from normal procedures in their Trump campaign investigation.”

In recent days reports emerged that said Chinese intelligence officials recruited a staff member at Feinstein’s local office to provide them with details on local politics. Feinstein said she was notified five years ago about the concerns and subsequently removed the staffer.

“Five years ago the FBI informed me it had concerns that an administrative member of my California staff was potentially being sought out by the Chinese government to provide information,” Feinstein said in a statement. “He was not a mole or a spy, but someone who a foreign intelligence service thought it could recruit.”

“He never had access to classified or sensitive information or legislative matters,” Feinstein added. “The FBI never informed me of any compromise of national security information.”

Although Feinstein was granted a defensive briefing, Trump did not get one as the FBI initiated an investigation into the activities of the Trump campaign amid concerns of collusion with the Kremlin.

The Daily Caller further reports:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes claimed Monday that the FBI and Justice Department failed to include exculpatory evidence in surveillance warrant applications against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“There is exculpatory evidence that we have seen, of classified documents that need to be declassified,” Nunes said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Exculpatory in nature in what way? Exculpatory in what way?” Hannity asked.

“In that the Carter Page FISA when the judges should have been presented with this exculpatory evidence that the FBI and DOJ had,” Nunes replied.
