If you d not know, Devin Nunes is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. I am sure that he is a nice guy. Friendly to children and pets. And he is in deep dog doo.
Why do I say this? I say this because Nunes is supposed to be credible. He is supposed to build trust that his committee can and will investigate stuff. Especially important stuff. Instead of that, Nunes looks more and more like a deer staring into the headlights. His buddies at the White House, who formerly embraced him, are now throwing him under the bus.
I do recall from my childhood days, that 1 plus 1 equals 2. Right. In this situation, we have 1 (a man who worked on the Trump campaign) plus 1 (the same man desperately trying to torpedo investigations of that same Trump campaign) equals 2 (the dude has an ulterior motive).
Even if you do not believe that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian intelligence to derail the Clinton campaign and win the election, you cannot be impressed by what Nunes has done to “bring out the truth”. Meanwhile, nothing coming out of the White House builds confidence that they are interested in the truth.
Can we finally admit that it is time to assemble a bipartisan special and independent investigative committee?`I would hope so.
