On Friday, Devin Nunes, Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Intelligence Committee, freely admitted on Fox News that he wrote FISA memo (also known as the GOP “nothingburger of the month” ) without any first-hand research.
Nunes told Fox News’ Bret Baier that the committee had an arrangement with the Justice Department that only allowed select members to actually read the documents as they related to the panel’s separate investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
“I thought the best person on our committee was the chairman of the Oversight Committee, Trey Gowdy, who has a long career as a federal prosecutor, to go and do this. And then they, over a series of meetings, would come back and brief us, the committee members,” Nunes said.
You can hear Nunes’ lame excuse yourself within the first two minutes of this video, but beyond I must warn you that his bullshit only gets deeper and deeper.
The funniest part of this interview was Nune’s self-described “reluctance” to bring this nonsense before “the American people.” As though this sycophantic political opportunist low-life wasn’t wetting his pants in anticipation of dropping this so-called “bombshell” memo that was supposed to make him the hero who saved Donald Trump’s presidency. It’s too bad he didn’t care enough about the facts, or else he would have realized how big of a fool he was about to make himself.
However, now Nunes’ has likely caught the attention of the last man any Republican wants looking at them right now. That man is Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who unlike Nunes, is conducting the real Russia investigation and may soon be calling to have a little “under penalty of purgery” chat with Mr. Nunes.
