Nunes: DOJ Hoping Republicans Lose in November

If the Republicans lose the House of Representatives the Democrats can shut down the investigation into the FBI coup.

The deep state are resisting Congressional investigation in their hope that Republicans lose the House in November and Democrats bring them to a halt. Devin Nunes is certain that their strategy is to try to wait out the clock and hope for Republican defeat.

This sounds completely plausible and it means that we can expect a lot more “leaks” of fake news as the election draws near.

I fully expect Robert Mueller to make his most serious accusations when it will do the most damage to Republicans.

The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Intel Chair: FBI, DOJ Obstructing Trump Probe in Hope of Dem Takeover in Congress.

The chair of the House Intelligence Committee accused the FBI and Department of Justice of stonewalling a sprawling investigation into claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russia with the hope of running out the clock until the November elections, when they anticipate Democrats will regain control of the House and dissolve an ongoing probe that has uncovered evidence U.S. officials sought to cripple Trump’s campaign.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), in a wide-ranging audio interview with his House colleague Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.), accused top officials at the FBI and DOJ of “putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House” so that their Democratic allies can “shut down” the longstanding Intelligence Committee probe, which has unearthed information disputing claims of collusion in recent months.

Rep. Duffy interviewed Rep. Nunes for an upcoming episode of Duffy’s podcast, “Plaidcast.

Nunes also lashed out at the U.S. media, accusing “90 percent” of reporters covering the Russia probe of being “essentially an arm of the Democratic party,” according to an advance copy of the interview shared with the Washington Free Beacon.

Nunes has been running the Intelligence Committee’s investigation into claims the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to cement the 2016 election. The committee has unearthed a body of evidence indicating senior officials at the FBI and DOJ worked to take down Trump on behalf of Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

“One-hundred percent, they [the FBI and DOJ] are putting all their chips on the Republicans losing the House and all these investigations will shut down,” Nunes told Duffy.
