I don’t play poker, but if I did, I’d want to play against Devin Nunes.
His face is in a perpetual state of panic.
As far back as March of 2017, since becoming active in tRump’s transition team, he has morphed from a little known Congressman from Fresno, California, to the Judas of the House of Representatives.
He’s obvious, a bumbling villain from a farcical B-film.
“Nunes leaps from an Uber car at a stoplight, leaving behind a senior Intelligence Committee staffer without explanation and disappears into the night. Nunes swaps to another car, travels somewhere, and shows up hours later to tell Paul Ryan he has uncovered evidence supporting Donald Trump’s claims that President Obama “spied” on him.” ~Mark Sumner, Daily Kos
This timeline from the Daily Kos is ridiculous.
Nunes has opened investigations into investigators, tried to ferret out names of whistleblowers, frantically peddled conspiracy theories, promised information that didn’t exist, scribed a nonsensical memo on behalf of the witless commander in thief, he flew to London in an attempt to debunk Christopher Steele’s dossier, but was turned away by the Brits.
He has gone as far as to accuse Democrats of trying to hack into tRump’s phone to acquire nude photos of him.
All of his accusations remain unfounded, but that hasn’t slowed him down.
He continues grasping for an escape on the taxpayer’s dime. The more we learn, the more we realize that he isn’t trying to save tRump so much as he’s trying to save himself.
Nunes has never been interested in unearthing crime or corruption, as is obvious to anyone who has been unfortunate enough to see him at work in the impeachment hearings. He has acted as a mole, sharing information on what special committees discuss in Congress with the White House.
An ethics watchdog group has filed a complaint regarding a revelation that Nunes spent $57k, in taxpayer funds, to travel to Brussels on a dirt seeking mission, targeting the Bidens, for tRump.
A recently indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, Lev Parnas, has offered the House Intel Committee proof that’s Nunes scrapped plans to fly to Ukraine this spring, again for Biden dirt, because he wanted to avoid the notice of House Intel Committee Chairman, Adam Schiff. He asked Lev Parnas to set up Skype meetings and phone calls instead.
As the ranking member of the House intel committee during impeachment proceedings, Nunes has been directly involved in the criminal behavior tRump is accused of, he was involved in the attempt to pressure Ukraine into investigating the Bidens
Chairman Schiff has said it is likely an investigation will be opened into Nunes’s involvement.
We now understand the scope of Nunes’s obstruction of Congress these three years, from the inside. No wonder he looks nervous.
