Congressman Devin Nunes appeared on Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to talk about his decision to file five criminal referrals regarding the ‘Russia Hoax’ this week, telling Hannity that they are based on “lying, obstruction, and leaking.”
“What can you tell us about this,” Sean asked the congressman. “When will we know who and what for?”.
“We don’t know if you’ll ever know who, but I can tell you that if you follow the Russia gate, Russia hoax closely if I gave you seven guesses, you’ll probably be able to get the five people that we referred,” said Nunes.
“There’s five direct referrals based on lying, obstruction, the Congressional investigation, and leaking,” he added. He continued, “We have a global leaks referral, which involves just a few reporters, but it could involve multiple people.” He followed up with, “And then you have conspiracy referrals. One’s based on the manipulation of intelligence. The second one is based on FISA abuse and other matters.”
The action on the referrals is now in William Barr’s hands, and the Attorney General is putting together a team to examine the FBI’s initial investigation into President Trump’s campaign in the summer of 2016. Asked about Nunes’ criminal referrals during a congressional hearing this week, Barr testified, “Obviously, if there is a predicate for investigation, it will be conducted.”
During a Senate Appropriations hearing on Wednesday, when asked about spying, Barr replied, “Yes, I think spying did occur” and “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal.” When offered a chance to withdraw the remark, he instead clarified: “I want to make sure there was no unauthorized surveillance.”
That sent Democrats into a panic. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference where she accused the Attorney General of “going off the rails…”
“It is very dismaying and disappointing that the chief law enforcement officer in our country is going off the rails yesterday and today,” Pelosi said. “He is the Attorney General of the United States of America not of Donald Trump.”
And that became the line of choice for Democrats who are panicking over the fact that the whole Russia collusion hoax has now ended, while their problems are only beginning as we finally have an attorney general who believes in the rule of law and is willing to investigate the corruption of the Democrats during the 2016 presidential election, along with the mainstream media’s involvement.
The Democrats will stop at nothing to obfuscate any investigation into the Obama DOJ and FBI’s weaponizing the tools of law enforcement to help exonerate Hillary Clinton of her real crimes while at the same time framing Donald Trump in an effort to take him out. This is just the beginning, and it’s going to be an interesting year.
