Nunes: ‘It’s Maybe Time’ to Shut Intel Agencies Down Given Abuses in Russia Investigation


These agencies are irrevocably broken. The Obama administration corrupted and weaponized these once-respected institutions — their tactics resemble those of despots and dictators.

Nunes: ‘It’s Maybe Time’ to Shut Intel Agencies Down Given Abuses in Russia Investigation

During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking Republican member on the House Intelligence Committee, sounded off about his frustrations regarding efforts to ascertain answers regarding the investigation into allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign.

By Breitbart News, October 8, 2020:

The investigation that goes back to 2016 has been a hot-button political topic over the last several years. Nunes said if evidence being withheld by the Department of Justice, the FBI and other intelligence agencies continues not to be forthcoming, the possibility of shutting those agencies down should be a consideration.

BARTIROMO: So, first, evaluate the Jim Comey testimony that we saw in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee this past week.

NUNES: Well, you know, on certain day, James Comey has an intelligence level higher than Einstein. He seems to know everything. He takes immaculate notes. He even takes those classified notes home and shares them with a lawyer. Somehow, those notes end up in The New York Times.

But then, other times, like you would think when you have actually opened an investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia, he seems to have amnesia. He’s forgotten everything.

And, look, I will just make this point. We asked him specifically and all the other dirty cops at DOJ and FBI and the intelligence agencies, in January of early 2017, where did this dirt come from? None of them seem to know the answer.

And you know what, Maria? Every damn person in that room knew the answer, except for the Republicans. That’s the truth.

BARTIROMO: Unbelievable.

Well, we want to talk more about this. I want to point out this op-ed that Kim Strassel from The Wall Street Journal wrote last week. And it’s called “The James Comey Election.”

And, in it, she writes: “Mr. Comey personifies what enrages Americans after they have gone through three-and-a-half years of this collusion narrative.” She says: “This was the crew that, in 2016, based on the thinnest of tips, launched a counterintelligence investigation into a presidential campaign, complete with secret surveillance warrants and informants.”

She goes on to say: “These — this all took place in Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s Washington. Those eight years also featured plenty of other swamp monsters. Don’t underestimate the number of Americans who fear a return to that world, Lois Lerner harassing conservative nonprofits, supervisors at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives losing guns in Fast and Furious, the EPA minions who burn companies with ever-changing rules.”

And the list goes on. This is why she’s calling this the James Comey election.

Will the American people understand what took place under Joe Biden and Barack Obama’s watch and this plan to take down a candidate and then a sitting president, Congressman?
