Corruption Crime Russia Investigation

Devin Nunes Under Investigation By The Intelligence Committee He Once Chaired

For two years, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) eagerly served as President Donald Trump’s servile lapdog, carrying water for the White House as it related to congressional investigations of Russia’s attack on the 2016 election.

But now, with Democrats in control of the House of Representatives — including the House Intelligence Committee Nunes once chaired — the California Republican has next to no power and cannot block investigations of Trump.

However,  Nunes now has a much larger problem than irrelevancy.

Intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced yesterday that his committee would expand its probe of Trump, Russia, the 2016 election, and the possibility that Trump has taken money in exchange for favors in the area of foreign policy. As CNN reports:

“In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia’s actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump’s team, as well as an examination of “whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates.”

The overall investigation will be conducted on five tracks, the first four of which all pertain to Trump what control the Kremlin may have over him. But the fifth one should be of special concern to Nunes. It reads:

“(5)    Whether any actors – foreign or domestic – sought or are seeking to impede, obstruct, and/or mislead authorized investigations into these matters, including those in the Congress.”

“Including those in the Congress.” Translation: If any member of Congress tried to hinder the investigations being conducted into the 2016 election, they will also be placed under a microscope to see what ties they might have to Russia and what actions they may have taken to obstruct the probe.

Keep in mind that Schiff has also announced that the House Intelligence Committee is cooperating and sharing information with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, so Nunes and other Trump lackeys in the GOP may well be facing criminal indictment by one of Mueller’s grand juries.

Devin Nunes is in very deep shit, and things are only going to get even worse for him.

I’ve been hoping he’d get what’s coming to him. That goes for all of them, from Trump on down.
They’re nothing but crooks, thieves and liars and are putting us and our country in very grave danger every day from our adversaries(China, Russia and now Saudi Arabia-Trump is selling them our nuclear technology)

It was more than evident that Nunes was a spy for trump while being head of the Intelligence committee..these men have no Principles whatsoever, while having a dishonest trump at the helm of govt..

This man needs to be lock up with Paul Ryan for giving information to him for Trump. Paul Ryan intercepted the information for Trump to hand Russia and cheated . Trump didn’t win the election Putin cheated for him.
