House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke with MSNBC’s Joy Reid this morning about the ongoing Russia investigations and Michael Flynn‘s immunity request.

Pelosi said that Flynn shouldn’t have immunity and told Reid that Devin Nunes has “tarnished the office that he holds” with how he’s conducted himself recently.

She even said it “brings dishonor to the whole committee.”

Reid brought up comments from Sean Spicer that the press should be looking at whether or not there was Obama administration surveillance of Trump transition team members. Spicer specifically pointed to comments made by former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas — comments that Farkas said have been misconstrued. Reid asked Pelosi, “Is that a legitimate avenue of inquiry?”

Pelosi responded, “I don’t think that anything that Spicer says is legitimate, because it changes from time to time.”

Reid also asked Pelosi if the American people should be “concerned about the legitimacy of the Trump presidency.” Pelosi said, “That remains to be seen.”
