Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., plans to submit criminal referrals to the Justice Department on accusations both the DOJ and the FBI made false claims while they investigated allegations of Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election.

"We are prepared now to at least submit our first criminal referral," Nunes told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "We think will grab everybody that we need to grab to make sure that there is a proper investigation."

The FBI and the DOJ used counterintelligence capabilities while investigating Trump that would normally be used to go after "terrorists and other bad guys," Nunes maintained. "They turned it on a political campaign. This is where they first went wrong. . . . Congress should not tolerate it, the American people should not tolerate it, and the Democrats should not tolerate it."

He added the FBI and DOJ had claimed their investigation did not begin until late July 2016, but "We now know for certain that that's not true. We are still trying to get to the bottom of that. Of course, there are still documents that need to come out."

He said he expects the referral to be delivered by next week, and added that as more information surfaces, it might need to be supplemented.

"There are documents that need to come out, but, we are prepared and are now drafting a criminal referral," Nunes said. "We can't force them to do an investigation, but we will give appropriate names to some crimes."
