Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced Thursday his intention to submit criminal referrals against the Justice Department and FBI for “false claims” about the Russia investigation.

He told Fox News Business’ Maria Bartiromo that he has a “major concern” that “the FBI-DOJ falsely claimed this investigation did not begin until late July. We now know for certain that is not true.”

“We are prepared now to at least submit our first criminal referral we think will grab everybody that we need to grab to make sure that there is a proper investigation,” or “at least our referral over to DOJ,” he added.

President Donald Trump hailed Nunes as someday bound to be a “great American hero” Wednesday night.
