CTH -- ♦ Obviously Chairman Devin Nunes has placed himself outside the rails of Deep State. ♦ The UniParty now wants him removed. ♦ Nunes has become a risk. ♦ Brutally obvious questions being ignored by media become focus of wider electorate.
Chairman Nunes is the only member of the Intelligence Oversight Gang-of-Eight who has reviewed the executive level intelligence product which caused him concern. Nunes alleged in the last week he received evidence that Obama administration political figures gained access to unmasked American identities through foreign intercepts involving the Trump transition team between November 2016 and January 2017.
Media and congressional leadership intentionally skip the obvious questions:
♦ Why don’t the other seven members also go look at the same executive intel?
♦ Why, instead of looking at the same data, does the entire UniParty political apparatus and DC media now seem intent on eliminating Devin Nunes?
♦ Why doesn’t Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Mark Warner simply go look at the same executive intelligence product?
♦ Why doesn’t Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell or Richard Burr simply go look at the same executive intelligence product?
♦ Why doesn’t any member of the DC media ask such brutally obvious questions?
These are all simple questions that hang above the political chaff and countermeasures.
These are also simply questions that explain why President Trump made this simple request on January 6, 2017: "I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it."
Notice how in the three months since that request was made by President-Elect Donald Trump, only one member of congress has actually done what was requested. That member is Devin Nunes.
Now look at what’s happening around Devin Nunes.
The brutally obvious reality behind these simple questions highlights something much more than the simple SWAMP. The reactive behavior is not confined to current DC politicians or the media surrounding DC.
What we see now, is a response by multiple elements more aptly called “Deep State“.
Blog Author's Comments: Those whose names were unmasked will not be happy that this has been happening. Until the reports are looked at, the 'Gang of 8', will try to deny even having knowledge of this. Once it crosses the line where Schiff, for example, goes and looks at the report, any normal person looking at that report would be just as disturbed as Nunes. Apparently not only were Americans names unmasked, but it seems that their day-to-day activities were shared as well.
Fox News had a brief interview with Nunes outside his Capitol Hill office yesterday. Nunes: “As far as I know they’ve done very little to even look through the documents that the intelligence agencies have provided,” Nunes said. He added, “At the end of the day here, we’re going to get to the truth and we’re going to find out who’s actually doing a real investigation. And you’ll find out that we are very much doing an investigation and have been for a long time.”
Asked about conflict with the House Intelligence Committee’s ranking member Adam Schiff, Nunes said, “We’re always concerned about this and we always want to keep the committee bipartisan but at the end of the day we’re going to do an investigation with or without them.” Nunes concluded saying to the Fox News reporter, “I would encourage you guys to go and start to follow them around and figure out who they want to bring in and interview.”
President Trump wants to accomplish items on his agenda. The Democrats and NeverTrumpers want to keep him from getting things done.
“Investigating the Russians”, is a perfect excuse for not getting things done. Again, we can see what a multi-purpose excuse the whole “Russians” hoax is. Hopefully the absurdity of it all will finally blow open the doors and let the sunlight in. This constant investigation about Trump and the Russians could go on forever if it is allowed to continue. I believe Nunes feels he has to keep the information from both Republicans and Democrats on the committee for fear of leaks to the villains he wants to surprise, and he wants to keep the whistleblower’s identity secret.
Nunes is one of 8 who have security level clearance to see the Intelligence. He can’t show it to his committee. Only Schiff can see it. He can’t tell anyone anything who is not the President, or the other 7. I believe Nunes has done everything the way he should have. As of today, the news I hear is that Nunes and Schiff will have a closed door meeting about this and we may hear what the next step is.
