Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been having secret correspondence with Donald Trump’s White House, clearly an act of collusion that compromises his objectivity as Chair of the House Intelligence Committee.
This correspondence has been specifically regarding intelligence matters, not just “Hey how are you?” chitchat. Nunes was recently spotted separating from his own staffers to take an Uber-ride over to the White House in the cloud of night.
What could Nunes, who is supposed to be leading the investigation into Trump’s treasonous dealings with Russia, be talking about with the primary suspect?
Even in the best case scenario, Nunes is apparently giving information to the Trump administration, rather than keeping his professional distance. This compromises ALL of the ongoing House investigations, since the objective should be for the Committee to maintain objectivity while the evidence is considered.
Anything that requires secret meetings and off the record comments with the Accused can’t be good, especially since Trump’s wiretapping claims and his dealings with Russia are so important to the country’s well-being.
Lies and treason from a president are being investigated and we’re letting things like this slide?
Nunes’ behavior has been severely criticized by protesters outside Washington D.C. But he had to be surprised to see the controversy follow all the way to Fresno, his home district. Three hundred protesters gathered to demand Nunes resign from any Trump investigations since he is obviously helping Donald Trump and is no longer answering to the American people.
The United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has been asked to investigate Trump’s crooked dealings—not just rubber stamp whatever the president is saying. We need a person of integrity to continue on pursuing these very serious investigations and time is running out. Nunes should do the honorable thing and bow out NOW, while there is still hope for this country.
