Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is upset that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Donald Trump, so now he’s suggesting that Mueller should look at Hillary Clinton because she may have colluded with Russia.
Yes, he really said that.
During an appearance on Fox News Thursday morning, Nunes was asked by host Bill Hemmer asked if he really believed the Department of Justice conspired to investigate Trump because he won the election. Nunes responded:
“The Mueller investigation went off the rails a long time ago. They have zero credibility.”
If Mueller has no credibility, why would Nunes want Mueller to lead a probe into Clinton? As usual, logic and reason goes out the window when Republicans are trying to defend their indefensible president.
Next, Nunes resorted to Trump’s favorite line, claiming there was “no collusion” between Trump and Russia:
“There’s no evidence of collusion. It’s a fact: The Clinton campaign hired Christopher Steele to go and talk to Russians to get dirt on Trump. That’s never been prosecuted, so what in the hell is Mueller doing? I have no idea. This is some kind of joke.”
The Steele dossier, it should be noted, was intiated by a GOP donor when Trump was seeking the 2016 Republican nomination, the New York Times reports:
“The Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website funded by a major Republican donor, first hired the research firm that months later produced for Democrats the salacious dossier describing ties between Donald J. Trump and the Russian government, the website said on Friday.
“The Free Beacon, funded in large part by the New York hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer, hired the firm, Fusion GPS, in 2015 to unearth damaging information about several Republican presidential candidates, including Mr. Trump. But The Free Beacon told the firm to stop doing research on Mr. Trump in May 2016, as Mr. Trump was clinching the Republican nomination.”
Devin Nunes is a sycophantic suck up. He lost his credibility a long time ago, and now he’s just trying to remain relevant.
