The House of Representatives investigation of the Trump - Russia is talking about it but getting bogged down in details. video

The leaders of the House intelligence committee are trying to get their Russia investigation back on the rails, according to the panel's top Democrat.
California Reps. Devin Nunes and Adam Schiff met Thursday after a week's worth of canceled hearings and bickering between the committee leaders, as their investigation turned partisan following a decision by Nunes, a Republican, to go to the press and White House with intelligence before alerting the committee.
    "We're doing our best to try and get the investigation back on track," Schiff said following the meeting. "We're in the process of exchanging witness lists and are going to see if by the end of the day we can agree on at least a common set of initial witnesses."
    CNN has reached out to Nunes for response and have not yet immediately gotten a response.
    Schiff said he and Nunes have agreed to go forward with a closed hearing with FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers. He also requested that Nunes agree to hold the public hearing with former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, though he said the chairman has yet to commit to do so.
    Schiff said Nunes has still not revealed the intelligence he said he shared with President Donald Trump and has pledged to share with the committee, or who Nunes met with at the White House.
    "It certainly was a part of our discussion, but beyond what we agreed to do, or hope to achieve to do by the end of the day, I really don't want to get into specifics," Schiff said.
