Last night Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appeared on Tucker Carlson television show for an interview. The topic is the HPSCI investigation into the details of the Clinton-Steele Dossier and the FBI’s politically motivated use therein to obtain a fraudulent FISA surveillance warrant.
Earlier in the day Chairman Nunes sent letters to former President Obama officials in an effort to discover their connection to the dossier and their knowledge of the content.

Are they required to answer? And what are the consequences if they won’t? Would subpoenas then be forthcoming? After which they will testify under oath, and lie. They can lie, but the risk is that Nunes already knows the answer to some of the questions. First rule for an attorney, never ask a question you don’t already know the truthful answer to. There has been a huge amount of lying coming from the Democrats and former members of the Obama administration. I don't believe we will ever receive the answers to the lies and who did what, since Donald Trump devastated the Democrats with the defeat of Hillary Clinton and becoming our president.
Now, how do the Republicans rid themselves of the Special Counsel Mueller? Mueller will never leave unless he is forced out or gets Trump for some sort of crime. He will not simply go after getting some of the little people in the administration. I hope there is a plan in place to get rid of him somehow. If the deputy AG, Rosenstein goes (fired or resigns – depending on the Inspector Generals report) his replacement could and should fire Mueller. The Trump administration has to deal with Mueller because of the AG Jeff Sessions, who is the most worthless Republican Attorney General that I can remember.
I get the sense that actual charges and prosecutions are not the intended goal for the Democrats. The Mueller Investigation only needs to make Team Trump look bad. The more dirt they can imply, infer or manufacture the better, particularly going into the mid-terms. It is a massive state sponsored character assassination fest. If the Democrats can use it to pick up some seats, that’s what matters. Years from now the prosecutions will be a footnote, but the epic Trump Russia Collusion Investigation that lasted for years will be a legend.
