The Devin Nunes political report. 2018-01-31 14:20:45
If there was a story about a naked woman running down the street, and you got one account of it from the first witness, who said she was just being an exhibitionist, then that account is what you most likely think about the whole thing, even though other accounts paint an entirely different picture with her boyfriend trying to attack her, with that first witness being her boyfriend.
This Is what Devin Nunes is doing with his partisan report about the FBI and DOJ. The report was not done by a bipartisan commission. Nunes went rogue, even though he is the head of the house intelligence commission that is currently investigating the whole Russian thing, to do his own investigation, after he recused himself from the one being done by his own commission because of his conflict of interest in it. So, he started to send out subpoenas, without oversight, or approval from others ofhis commssion, to form his own report, which is filled with cherry picked, and classified Intel, and now wants it released to the public, without the consent of the DOJ or the FBI - which could land him in legal trouble.
The house Intel commission, which he chairs, has just voted, on partisan lines, to release that report, while voting down a report by Democrats to counter it. This is not the first time Republican have released selective transcripts, or leaked select emails, to the public, to create a one sided narrative to their benefit, which Democrats, or previous presidents, had to release whole e-mails, or whole transcripts, to counter those selective GOP talking points, as Republicans have tried to block them, claiming they undermine the investigation, or are classified - so many double standards the GOP have.
This whole thing sets a dangerous precedence, where intel from the DOJ, and the FBI, will be questioned, for political reasons, for current and future presidents. It's clear that Nunes is brown-nosing Trump, and is doing this to undermine the Mueller investigation, at the expense of the country. And his willingness to release classified intelligence will only hurt the country more, all for politics. This whole thing is worse than water gate, with members of Congress trying abuse their positions to defend members of their own party for political ass saving, no matter what the cost, or damage, it will do to the system, and country.
