Devin Nunes points out that the investigation has backfired on democrats.
Democrat fear tactics are not working and the democrats are the ones in cahoots with the Russians, not republicans, Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) insists. The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee vows his watchdog panel found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. What they did find were links connecting the sneaky Soviets with Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Chairman Nunes didn’t like his republican colleagues being falsely accused by the liberal mainstream press. “They came out there with this narrative that the House Republicans were never interested in doing an investigation.” The left-leaning media has it backward he asserts. “We have 70 findings and recommendations. Let’s start with paper ballots.”
“We better have you go back to using paper ballots in this country so that we have a way to check and double check that votes are accurate and all votes are counted. I think that’s a major finding and major recommendation in our report.”
The anti-Trump media bias is unbelievably bad, Nunes complains. Their findings were ignored. “All of the media,” he laments, is “essentially part” of “the Democratic Party.”
“We’ve been listening for over a year to the democrats in this country scare the American people saying they have evidence of collusion with the Russians. No, they don’t.” Chairman Nunes told Maria Bartiromo of Fox News on Sunday.
“But we did find links between the Clinton [campaign] and the Democratic Party to the Russians,” he adds.
Republican Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) confirms that team Trump may have had some “inappropriate judgment at taking meetings” but that is a minor issue. “We found perhaps some bad judgment,” Conaway verified, “the probe has found no evidence of collusion.”
According to Rep. Conaway, Washington, D.C. red-state lawmakers are convinced that Russia threw everything they had at interfering with the election but they didn’t try to throw it President Trump’s way.
The bottom line, Conaway declares, is that “the Russians did commit active measures against our election in ’16 and we think they will do that in the future. We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump.”
The full report has not yet been released, even in redacted form, but is expected to describe “the sourcing of the information in the infamous dossier written by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.”
It has come out over the past year that “Steele was employed by opposition research firm Fusion GPS that was funded in part by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.”
Leaks of classified information “have damaged national security and potentially endangered lives,” the report will state. It also accuses “former Obama administration Director of National Intelligence James Clapper of providing ‘inconsistent testimony’ to the committee about his contacts with the media.”
This news comes on the heels of a bombshell revelation that the FBI and Department of Justice are the targets of a Grand Jury criminal investigation that has been ongoing for some time.
Chairman Nunes isn’t very happy with the Department of Justice. The way they have been sandbagging records requests borders on “obstruction of justice.”
Rep. Nunes promises to start having DOJ officials held in contempt of Congress if the documents don’t show up “within two weeks.”
The committee was forced to subpoena “1.2 million Clinton investigation texts and documents.” Asking the DOJ nicely only got them access to around 3,000 of them.
A treasure trove of scandalous documents has been leaking out of the Justice Department since the election. Included in the documents the committee requested are the text messages exchanged between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
Just before the election, Strzok, Page, and McCabe cooked up “an insurance policy” in FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s office.
That insurance policy resulted in Robert Mueller being appointed Special Counsel. Both Strzok and Page worked on Mueller’s team.
Democratic lawmakers have been fierce in their determination that the House Committee’s findings don’t end the Mueller Special Counsel Probe. The committee’s work is “fundamentally incomplete,” warns Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)
Anyone who so much as handed out a button to a Russian immigrant, during a Trump campaign rally, has come under the scrutiny of Robert Mueller’s grand inquisition.
The “Special Counsel” continues trying to pile together twigs of circumstantial evidence and innuendo in hopes he will gather enough to burn President Trump at the stake with.
The ever-widening witch hunt has so far netted only low-level associates of the Trump campaign. Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Richard Gates and George Papadopoulos have been charged.
The specific target of the probe, “misconduct by the president’s campaign itself,” didn’t get a single hit.
