Not just a liberal “reporter,” but intelligence agents, are claiming that Rep. Devin Nunes is a Russian agent.
Calling a person exposing your own corruption a Russian agent should be an embarrassing cliché. But John Heilemann seems blind to how he’s humiliating himself.
No, John. The question is truly “ridiculous and absurd” under THESE circumstances. And you’re ridiculous and absurd for asking if Nunes is a Russian agent. You should be embarrassed but you’re too infatuated with yourself to notice.
The Washington Times reports, “Rep. Devin Nunes digs up dirt on Democrats’ snooping on Trump.”
Through targeted subpoenas and threatening letters, Rep. Devin Nunes has forced into the open a fuller story of how the Obama administration investigated suspected Russian ties to the Trump campaign and monitored people connected to the presidential candidate.
The White House now has in its hands Mr. Nunes‘ latest revelation: his top-secret, four-page memo outlining supposed abuses in the Justice Department during months of Trump surveillance.
Whether it was how the FBI used a Democrat-financed dossier or why the special counsel fired his top FBI agent or how many Trump associates were “unmasked” in wiretap spying, Mr. Nunes has unearthed facts that otherwise likely would have remained hidden.
Democrats, led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff of California, have pounced on Mr. Nunes for veering from the Trump-Russia collusion narrative to one of, they say, protecting President Trump.
Mr. Schiff has relied heavily on the unverified Russia-sourced dossier to frame the investigation and interrogate witnesses. He has resisted all of Mr. Nunes‘ efforts to find out who paid for the dossier, who read it during the campaign or how the FBI relied on it to open its investigation.
John Heilemann, a member of the mainstream media punditry, seemed to have reached the height of liberal frustration Tuesday when he suggested that Mr. Nunes was a Russian agent.
“Is it possible that we actually have a Russian agent running the House intel committee on the Republican side?” Mr. Heilemann said on MSNBC. “He’s behaving like someone who’s been compromised, and there are people in the intelligence community and others with great expertise in this area who look at him and say, ‘That guy’s been compromised.’”
The clock is ticking. The White House can opt to release the memo after a mandatory five-day review.
