He disputed Rooney's account that the committee's other work is suffering, noted the panel has recently passed bipartisan bills to renew intelligence programs.

"The level of trust is just gone", Rooney said, adding that "certain things definitely suffer", like how to fund and conduct oversight over intelligence agencies.

Whose idea was it to build a wall?

"I swear to God I didn't know that", Rep. Tom Rooney (R-FL) said.

Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), who has served on the Intelligence Committee for the past 12 years, said the planned wall is symbolic of the total deterioration of the House Intelligence Committee.

Let us not forget our very own 21st Congressional District Representative Elise Stefanik is one of them. He told CBS that the probe is investigating the "entire" staff, even "the woman up front that answers the phone".

Before Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) became chairman in 2015, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence had a reputation for bipartisanship.

House Democrats attempted and failed to force a vote on the House floor criticizing Rep. Devin Nunes' memo on House floor Tuesday.

Some Republican committee members were quick to declare that they knew nothing about the proposed wall.

This memo shows that the current Republican politicians are more interested in rooting out Democrats in the Federal Bureau of Investigation than finding out if there are Russian agents in the White House.

The California congressman helped put together the controversial memo alleging that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department abused their surveillance power to spy on former Trump campaign official Carter Page.

Much of the tension has been between the Republican chairman of the panel, California Rep. Devin Nunes, and the committee's top Democrat, California Rep. Adam Schiff, who have been chiding each other since launching the Russian Federation investigation together past year.
