Man leading Russia links investigation says he has ‘duty and obligation’ to Donald Trump

The chair of the investigation into links between Russia and the Trump team has said he has a “duty and obligation” to the President.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ made the comments just days after he was criticised for personally briefing Donald Trump on developments in the investigation before he told Democrats on the committee about new information.

Mr Nunes went to Mr Trump first to discuss evidence that members of the President’s transition team were legally surveilled by US intelligence agencies.

It lead the second most senior member of the committee, Democrat Adam Schiff, to question whether Mr Nunes was working as a “surrogate of the White House”.
