House Intelligence Committee Republicans are planning to build a physical wall to separate Democrat and Republican staffers, according to committee sources who spoke with CBS News.

The partition is expected to be constructed this spring in the committee's secure spaces, according to CBS News. The House Intelligence Chairman called the site his "online magazine" on Sunday, but if you're hoping to find hot takes from Nunes like "Goodbye to All That: Why I Un-recused Myself From the Russian Investigation", you'll be disappointed.

"The level of trust and the level of everything down there is - it's poison", he added.

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

"I'm not part of that decision", Rep. Mike Conaway told CBS.

"We do support our troops, but I think most troops would tell you they would rather be taken care of than march to the president's tune down Pennsylvania Avenue", Swalwell said.

If Devin Nunes would behave like an honorable public servant, he would not need a fake news organization, but the fact that he can't run on his own merits is exactly why Nunes has got to go.

"I swear to God I didn't know that", Rooney said.

The panel's ranking Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told TPM through the committee's minority spokesperson that the wall would be a "terrible mistake".

The report about the wall comes amid the increasingly volatile environment over the released GOP surveillance memo and the still unreleased Democratic countermemo.

Democrats have accused Republicans of throwing a wrench into the process to protect President Trump and his top aides. Nunes has said that the committee's Republicans are still investigating and plan to put together more memos.

Also plaguing the committee is concerns over leadership, as several Democrats have called for Nunes's removal over the memo controversy, and delays in the committee's investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential race.

Mr. Nunes, the author of a memo making the initial charges against the Federal Bureau of Investigation said the panel's Democrats should be, but aren't, spending the weekend "redacting it so that we can get it back to the White House so the president can declassify it".
