Devin Nunes became the Deep State’s worst nightmare.
Democrats are not through with him yet.
And Devin Nunes had some bad news for Hillary Clinton about the FBI.
As Conservative Revival reports:
Special counsel John Durham’s indictment of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann and IgorDanchenko for lying to the FBI in Durham’s investigation into the Russian collusion hoax provided proof that Donald Trump was right that the Clinton campaign fabricated the collusion narrative.
In an interview with Newsmax’s Eric Bolling, the California Congressman tore into the collusion story as a hoax that was paid for and invented by the Clinton campaign.
Nunes explained that Danchenko – who lied to the FBI about getting his supposed “leads” about the Trump campaign and Russia from Russians – and Steele were just stand ins.
”I guess the best way to put it there could be they were just avatars,” Nunes stated.
In reality, Clinton confidante Charles Dolan Jr. – who served as a state chairman for Bill Clinton’s 1992 and 1996 campaigns as well as assisting Hillary Clinton’s two presidential campaigns – fed Danchenko bogus stories about Trump – one of which was likely the Trump “pee tape” falsehood.
Nunes told Bolling that the Clinton campaign used Danchecnko and Steele’s background as a Russia researcher and ex-spy to lend credibility to a bogus document that everyone would have dismissed if Clinton campaign partisans put it together.
”They needed somebody so that they could say, ‘oh, we have a former MI6 James Bond guy’ on one hand, ooh, he’s talking to a Russian national with Russian contacts.’ That’s where it all stopped, though, because Steele wasn’t James Bond. This guy was just getting paid to do a job, to put his signature on something,” Nunes added.
Nunes stated the scandal was far deeper than claiming the FBI knew the dossier was bogus yet the FBI still used the dossier as the key piece of evidence to obtain FISA warrants to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
”It was the Clinton people feeding this in, and then the FBI knew about this. They knew none of these guys were reliable and they presented it to the FISA court, and therein lies the problem,” Nunes added.
‘We knew it was completely made up,” Nunes continued. ”We knew the FBI was in on it. We knew the Clinton campaign was in on it. We have built a circumstantial case for that. What Durham has now done is he’s been able to bring in email, phone calls, communications, payments and put all this together.”
Nunes concluded with a warning that it is not healthy for democracy for one party to co-opt the FBI and intelligence community as partisan enforcers to target their political opponents.
”It’s unhealthy for a democratic republic, and quite frankly, it leads to instability,” Nunes concluded. ”And I think that’s the overall concern here: that if Durham is not able to track all these guys down and put them in jail, it’s going to be seen as, I mean it already is, the biggest scandal in political history, and has long-lasting repercussions.”
