Talk about irony. While Dems and the left-wing media already found Trump guilty of collusion before Mueller was appointed, the real scandal might be the conduct of the probers themselves.
Asked what it would mean if it turns out that there actually was a spy, Nunes said, “I think what it really means, I think it will look badly on the Department of Justice and the FBI on how they conducted this investigation. And that’s what we’re trying to get to the bottom of. We’re trying to put clarity and sunlight for the American people so that they know everything that happened on how this investigation began.”
House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes joined and discussed the increasingly obvious frame up of President Trump by the globalist Democrats.
Brian Kilmeade:“Why is it important to find out who was possibly on the inside of the Trump camp informing people on the outside?”
Similarly with “the memo,” which deals with a relatively obscure and meaningless Trump hanger-on and, as Shackford notes in his article, fails to advance either side of the debate over whether the president was playing footsie with the Russians.
The important issue here isn’t the damage that Nunes’ document (and eventually, Schiff’s minority report that will be published after it is vetted for security reasons) does or doesn’t do to the reputation of the FBI and federal law enforcement. It’s that the reputation of these groups is already awful.
Recall the rhetorical cherry that Comey put on the top of that shit sundae:
To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.
These and other elements combine to make a toxic brew that smells to high heaven, but most Americans don’t know much about it. Mainstream media coverage has been sparse and dismissive and there’s a blackout from the same Democrats obsessed with Russia, Russia, Russia.
Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the White House said it could not release the Democrats’ memo because the Justice Department “has identified portions…which it believes would create especially significant concerns for the national security and law enforcement interests.”
In one text message, an agent suggests that Attorney General Loretta Lynch knew while the investigation was still going on that the FBI would not recommend charges against Clinton.
How could she know unless the fix was in?
