Rep. Devin Nunes spoke Friday to the Ag Lenders Society at a private gathering in Fresno. He was ushered in and out of the building, also avoiding the media.
About 300 people protested on the sidewalk outside with signs saying Nunes is more interested in protecting President Donald Trump than them.
Nunes is under fire for going to Trump after a secret intelligence briefing before reporting his findings to his committee.
Guests who attended the luncheon say the talk mostly focused on water but the Russian investigation came up at least once. Veterinarian Joseph Butterweck says he supports Nunes and believes the congressman did nothing wrong.
